Apple iPad mini vs Google Nexus 7 vs Amazon Kindle Fire HD specs comparison

0. phoneArena 23 Oct 2012, 14:13 posted on

We have been hearing about a smaller, cheaper iPad since last fall, and the rumors really reached a tipping point this summer, until we finally got to today's unveiling. Analysts and pundits were saying that Apple would never go downmarket, but Cupertino proved them wrong, occupying the last niche where Android tablet were roaming unabated in one fell swoop...

Its almost been out for 6 months and the n7 is still the 7" champ. My n7 is the best $200 I've spent on a gadger, ever.

Btw lol at the ipad minis 162ppi. Nice try apple.

Not only ppi, but overall resolution, and 4x3 ratio. Introductory Apple specs, you'll see the rest in version 2.

Apple Mini is a first gen product -- it took Apple 3 tries to get retina display on the iPad. This should be common knowledge (for the rest of us).

All the news surrounding the Apple Mini make it clear it would NOT have retina display since it's a first generation product. Apple and it's OEMs need to go through a learning curve.

Then iPad Mini, then Kindle Fire.
I just don't like the Fire. Imo, the skin on it makes it worse than iOS.

if they make high res display...developers wiil have a new headache...they already headache for updating their apps to iphone5...The thing is Apple will be effected in Long Term,if they didnt adopt responsive design like Android...How long they can double the resolution and avoid that longstanding problem...

I don't like most Apple products but the display aspect ratio seems perfect to me for a 7" tablet.

Sarcasm, right? please? i'm just assuming your making fun of the display, since you said 7" when it's 7.9"... right?

so wouldnt it be considered more of an 8 inch tablet?

I really like that aspect ratio and when I say aspect ratio I mean it literally. I know the size of the screen is 7.9" but that's not the point I'm trying to make.

In other words, I wish the Nexus 7 screen was a bit wider.

Umm the Nexus 7 has a higher resolution screen and NFC all for a much lower price. Not to mention all its other advantages.

The Nexus 7 has Bluetooth, long battery life, and a front facing camera, too. It also has a better display with higher ppi and the A5 can't even compare to the Tegra 3.
Before the A6, I didn't really think Apple did so great in the hardware department. However, they've really stepped up their game recently with the Retina Macbooks, iPhone 5, and iPad 4th gen.
You have to admit though, the Mini is disappointing and doesn't hold a candle to the Nexus 7 in any factor including cost.
Do your research. :)

How about a quad core processor to start with?
What is the point of having all those specs if your processor (your main piece of hardware lacking firepower) is ancient history..

I have a 250gb hard drive on my tablet so that's slams your 16gb. There are better tablets for less money out there
