Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012Outperformed in every way eh? Just tell me what is purpose of a tablet? It's basically there ... moreout performed them in every speed test known to man. Just google it. It out performed in the no important aspects loading programs, and web surfing. Are you done attacking apple users yet? Why don't you go attack an apple user in real life.
Anonymous, 13 Nov 2012because it really does't need 1gb of ram. If it had 1gb ram, you punks will be saying, why no... moreYou absolutely right.
Extra ram is only there when a device does more than the previous device, and IOS pretty much hasn't moved or improved in 6 years so why give extra ram to something that was created in 2006?
I'm a user of Galaxy Note 10.1 for 3 months... I am not happy with Android tablets! Apple iPad is far better, more fluid... best user experience. Just purchased an iPad mini and sold my Galaxy Note 10.1. No regrets. Apple rocks!

Just tell me what is purpose of a tablet? It's basically there to replace a notepad and a notepad is there as a portable computer, and a computer is there as the central hub for all your digital devices.
Now an iPad can't connect to anything else because of Apple's restrictions and lack of multitasking makes a device useless and connectivity makes a device useless when you looking to do anything more than the absolute basics.
And Android is a resource hog because with multitasking and widgets it can be doing dozens of different tasks at once and you don't even realise because it is optimised to have multiple capabilities not just one thing at a time and because iPad only has to do 1 thing it can be optimised to run faster on that single task so Android tablets need a lot more power to seem like it's running as fast.
[deleted post]Dude you wasting your time pointing out the lack of multitasking because yeah that would bring iPad up to a whole new level that even I would consider buying, but people buy iPad simply because it's made by Apple and people just don't want to admit that it is purely just an iPhone with a bigger screen, I mean I know a lot of people who have to carry iPhone, iPad and Mac Book because when 1 Apple device can't do something they have to carry more and more Apple devices to make up for it's deficiencies.
And the fact is that with Android you can never say never because even with my S3 pretty much anything I want I can make it do.
dwen, 12 Nov 2012pooooor ram.. why not 1GB?because it really does't need 1gb of ram. If it had 1gb ram, you punks will be saying, why not 2gb of ram? 512 mb is more then enough, and it already out performed the nexus 7 in every way possible.
ReadMyOpinion!, 11 Nov 2012I think the iPad mini is AMAZING! If I were you, I would actually GO OUT AND TRY ONE before po... moreNo one's saying it's lacking Apps, but iPads do seriously lack features like external SD, Multitasking, widgets, Bluetooth data capabilities, HDMI port, USB host and a lot of other smaller features.
So basically it is just a big iPhone with less features even than the phone, and I just don't see the point in giving something such a big screen and promote it as a replacement of a notebook but it actually just seems like a few steps up from a digital picture frame.
Ipad mini features are still below other lower priced, Android tablet-phones.
Anonymous, 11 Nov 2012then don't buy it. simple as that. LOL. Does that mean you supposed to accept whatever lack of features Apple gives you and never ask for more?
I think the iPad mini is AMAZING! If I were you, I would actually GO OUT AND TRY ONE before posting your opinions. They include over 250,000 apps so I cant see why people are saying that there is limited apps. Im getting one for Christmas...so basically my opinion is that they're worth buying.
Is this tablet support Youtube video ?
.....google has already discontinued it's maps & Youtube support for all Apple gadgets after lawsuit.
Huh ! No gsm voice support, no memory card support means lesser appl support unlike galaxy tab 2 p3100.
Does anyone of you out there who knows a software/developer where I can log in to their website and purchase their software? It will be just like jailbreaking to enable phone call. I really love this thing so that I have a phone and tablet. Don't suggest SAMSUNG and iphone 5 as I have already used that.
The problem with this thing is I buy tablets so I don't have to carry a notebook anymore, but iPad is so basic and restrictive all you can do is the basics. Because I expect to have as much memory as I need and use external SD, external HDD and flash drive to be able to move my data around as I need but this can't do any of that.
I expect to connect to my phone and any other device wired and wirelessly to use it as like the central hub when I'm out and about but again this can't do that.
And I expect to be able to do more than 1 thing at once so I can maybe convert/edit videos while using the internet at same time but this has almost zero multitasking.
So this just feels more like a toy compared to Android and Windows tablets so for me is completely useless.
ATTENTION! This device does not make phone calls. It uses a Sim card for internet connection only.
Worst apple product so far bad display, low cpu power and memory, and can't hold it in one hand.
Anonymous, 08 Nov 2012even better, the new nexus 7 with 32gb cost the same as the old 16 gb model. Now with ipad min... morePeople buy this because if you buy an iPhone you have to buy everything else with an Apple logo because they think if they don't have everything then they won't be seen as one of the cool kids, plus Apple makes sure you have to buy absolutely everything directly from them so even though people know there's better Android tablets out they'll be forced to buy all their media a second time to use in it because they incarcerated if the Apple ecosystem.
