Apple iPad mini review: One for the road - read the full textWait, did hell just freeze over? Maybe a couple of degrees cooler? Rumors of a mini version of the iPad had been laughed at, dodged and denied - not necessarily in that order and often all at once. But here it is - the iPad mini is finally a reality...

No android tablet in 7inch category can compete with mini on this factor!!! I would recommend anyone to get ipad mini instead of a laggy n crappy android tablet!!!

All those people who are crying about the screen resolution have certainly not used the Ipad mini..
I myself brought one a couple of days back, its my first ios device.
To my suprise, the resolution doesn't look bad. If u coming for a retina display, then u are sure to notice, but for first time users, its not even noticable. Its Apple, they won't bring out a bad device(it sure is not to the top though).
Its a awesome piece overall, feels so good looking and the simplicity of the ios is there to welcome u.
And about the price, here in India its for 21000rs for 16gb WIFI only and also the nexus 7 is for 19000rs. So the difference is like nothing.
Go for Ipad Mini, you won't regret it.
Thanks :)

Imagine these company profit making like Apple, Google, Exxon contribute to the economy instead of taxing consumers or working class people, we will be back to our Grade GREAT rating. WE THE CONSUMER ARE THE ONE WHO'S HELPING THE ECONOMY, so keep the price low.

PLus it only has a battery life of 7 hours meaning you cant watch more than 3. And it has no USB or SD slot on any of the models and that just complicates it. This thing is just a blown up itouch, I swear you can buy a motorcycle for 830$ bucks, what a waste

It is one awsome devise ive used. it only can perform 40% of wat i do with my note2.. but watever it has it is simply outstanding.. thouroughly impressed with the built and sound quality and the performance. Doing copy paste on my note is like climbing mount everest.. apple made it so simple and fine which i uses over my daily activities. Good job apple with ipod mini but utterly dissapointed with iphone 5. I pass and got note2.

And can videos be played full screen because I heard that this mini has 4:3aspect ratio which is not good for viewing videos full screen. Please somebody help me before I buy this mini.

I think the main disadvantage with this ipad mini is, next year disappointment.
Next year the ipad mini at least will have the retina display with the same resolution as ipad 3rd/4th gen with 324ppi(same ppi with the iphone), A6x chip (still good for ios device), or maybe NFC.
With the same price I think today's ipad mini is antediluvian
