Amazon mistake: Apple iPad mini has stereo speakers
Amazon also noted how its tablet has dual stereo speakers versus the mono speakers on the smaller sized Apple tablet. But Amazon might not have done its homework here. An email sent from Apple's senior vp of worldwide marketing, Phil Schiller, reveals that the Apple iPad mini does indeed have stereo speakers. Perhaps the blame can't be placed right at Amazon's feet after all considering that the product page on Apple's website merely says that the "mini" has a built-in speaker.
To set things straight, Apple needs to update the Apple iPad mini product page to reflect the stereo speakers, and Amazon needs to either correct its comparison chart or remove it in a timely fashion. The online retailer just might want to keep it up after fixing the incorrect line about the mono speaker on the iPad mini because after all, it does strike at one major criticism of the 7.9 inch iOS tablet, the 1024 x 768 resolution on the screen.

The Kindle Fire HD is a great budget tablet no need for the cheap shot.

Kindle has dual stereo, where ipad mini has only stereo? I guess kindle still wins

HAHA! I didn't notice that at first but that is pretty funny!
So dual stereo speakers must mean 2 sets of stereo speakers for a total of 4 speakers right? Man those marketers REALLY screwed up.
That's almost as bad as saying "dual redundant" when it is truly only single redundant.

Still Mono sound, so it might as well be one speaker

The very first Kindle like tablet came out first before there was ever anything called an Ipad so give props where its due even if it doesn't do all the same things as the Ipad. Granted it is an E-reader but where do you think Apple got the idea to make the Ipad & get this the Kindle had round corners first. OOOHHH gut punch that @ss LMBO

Apple should never have ridiculed other manufacturer's products during their keynote addresses. When you act like a child, you get treated like one.

If you ask me Amazon should be suing Apple for copying the look of the first Kindle, #ijs

oh amazon... how about ecosystem?
sorry but i really hate black propaganda! even if you compare it with any other 7" out there, even with Nexus 7 and the iPad mini, it doesnt make your device any better!
