iPad mini: essential apps

The 7.9-inch Apple iPad mini is here. And it’s great - it’s more compact, lighter, more portable. At $329 for the basic model it is not too expensive…

Judging from the thumb-downs you two shouldn't be satisfied with your gadget unless it's a fandroid device.

Exactly. Why is it people can't just come to PA, and enjoy their experience. All the thumb downs unless its anti apple/pro android is for the birds. I love both platforms and can care less what folks say. +1 bro

Do they provide sandpaper for your fingers? I hope so seen as Steve jobs said that any tablet smaller than 9.7" would require the user to sand their fingertips down to 1/4 the size in order to be able to use it.

I got the 32 GB version of the iPad mini -- I learned after my experience with 16GB iPad 2 to pay the extra $100 bucks since 16 GB isn't that much after a couple of videos, a couple large apps like Infinity Blade, etc. Trust me, I really think charging an extra $100 for 16 more GB is a huge rip-off, but what can I do since I need the extra capacity on my device.
Unlike most people, I used the iPod Touch, iPad 2, and now iPad Mini for my hobby to make money in my spare time. I like going to casinos and taking down jackpots. I made over $10,000 with my iPod Touch (mainly due to a $10 app) and I hope to do the same with the iPad Mini. In the old days, I had to copy the information, go home and fire up my laptop and run the analyses -- and it sucked if I made a mistake in copying the information since it meant a repeat trip to the casino.
Now, with the specialized software (apps) on Apple's App store -- all the analyses is done live right at the casinos. Plus every casino I've been in has fast wifi so I can confirm my analyses with specialized gaming websites. I specialize in beating known games such as video poker, wongable slots, and games with design flaws -- in casino lingo, they call me an Advantage Player. Right now I am tracking a biased roulette wheel. I have spreadsheets, word documents, databases, etc. that I can share immediately with my network. I have friends that can write code to see if the game is beatable. Just a reminder, casinos don't allow "computers" at the gaming tables.
I would love to buy an android tablet since it is cheaper, but it doesn't have the necessary apps. I really like the fact the iPad mini fits inside my jacket pocket, it has a very fast processor, and has a bigger screen than phablets. The device is so light and thin!! That duo-core A5 chip is no joke -- I ran parallel tests with my iPod Touch 4G and iPad Mini and the iPad Mini is that much faster meaning I can run multiple tests, i.e. sensitivity analysis on the opportunity. Playing with Siri is fun and the "voice to text" is pretty impressive and way better than Dragon software that I have used in the past.
Most people will buy the tablet for entertainment purposes, but then there's people like me who understand what a powerful tablet can do in making (more) money.

It should be Skype for iPad , not the iPhone version .
Besides , it runs the same resolution as the ipad 2 , this article is not needed , everything is the same and still works
