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...

iPad mini is good but nexus7 is better!!! nexus7 is armed with quad core cortex A9 which is clocked at 1.3 GHrz . on the other hand ipad mini only has two cortex A9 core with 1 GHrz clock speed. additionally they are really close at the erms of graphics. Because ULP Geforce under nexus7 has 12.5 Gflops and PowerVR543mp2 under iPad mini has 16 Gflops processing power. But nexus7 hase 1 GB of RAM and iPad mini only has 512 MB. Again nexux7 has better resolution and accept ratio by 1280*720 and iPad has 1024*768. pixel density of nexus7 is far better than iPad mini and i think nexus7 has one of the best screens in its class. Finally nexus7 has bigger battery by 16Wh against 13Wh of iPad. However iPad has their points too!!! iPad is lighter and thinner and it is made by aluminium but nexux is made by plastic. Additionally iPad has a 5MP camera and dual-band wifi. And in software terms!!!! I like android customization and beautiful UI more than simple ios UI. I believe that Google voice works better than siri and google absolutely has better maps than apple. Both devices are superbly smooth because of Jelly bean and have great markets. With the same price I love both because each one has their points but nexus7 is near 100 cheaper than ipad mini with the same size of internal memory and I think nexus7 is a better choice at all !!!!!!!

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

my archos 101 g9 is so easy to use, i simple drag and drop my videos music etc and bam its working on my device

with the ipad you gotta work through itunes right, and you'll have to convert the video file to something the ipad can handle..........so restricted

i see the ipad as just a content viewer, all it does it let you look at what you have bought off of itunes but you never really feel you own the content...........apple lets you have access to it though which is kind of them seeing as you payed for it

iPad Mini - way over priced for an older generation processor, and non-retina display. Had it come in at $250 I might have considered one. I'll stick with my Nexus 7. This first gen Mini falls short -way short.

Wonder why there's no Samsung for Comparison? The Galaxy Tab 7.7 is probably the most similar with the iMini in terms of dimension and specs.
