Ipad mini? Hhhhmmm let's seem.
Poor processor
Even poorer low res screen
No replaceable battery
No micro sd card
No flash
Pox ridden itunes
No usb otg
No phone capabilities......
Not pocket able.....

Ps the best mini tablet is actually the tab 7.7 p6800.
The best phone is the note 2 by a long way.

Samsung is the best! And I'm a proud customer of this great phone.
I used to have N9 its a total joke when i tried my friend's S2.
I can't even describe my anger toward Nokia they totally robbed us blind with their outdated phones and now i think they are avoiding Android because they can't have direct competition with real phones manufactures like Samsung Sony HTC Motorola so that they hide behind WP and MeeGo.

Android 4.2 is seriously suffering lot of issues and Google is testing 5.0.
Hilarious really.

I'll wait for the official update OTA. The new features seem to be nice, but it's not worth to skip the 1-2 months wait at the expense of your warranty. If we were talking about Android 4.2, then it would be a completely different story.
