Mrplop, 23 Oct 2012Same boring design.looks like apple are running out of ideas.Same design???? Check the pics before posting stupid comments... you want a L shaped tablet??? you are boring...
AnonD-53679, 23 Oct 2012iOS has got no true multitasking. That's why.We are talking about hardware... not software.... The hardware is enuf for the software to run fluently.. so it wont be slower... Get an android tab with 512 ram and compare with the ipad.. you will know.. who uses the hardware well...
The all new Lumia 920 : 185 grams and 4.5 inch screen,
Samsung's all plasticky second 7" tab : 350 grams(almost),
Kindle fire : over 400 grams( old) or 395 (new) and 7 inch screen
Apple makes that aluminium tablet with almost 8 inch screen , inovative lighting port and weigting just 10 grams over 300.
So, I Don't like it! The weight is useless.
not an apple fan, but an iphone 4s fan and also, an xperia mini pro fan.
from what I see, apple did a double whammy here...
ipad mini will save the ipad 2 and the 4s and touch 5 because it is basically of the same specs...
with this, it means that devs are still gonna optimize games/apps for the a5 chip...which means old device users are still in for a treat
it also will attract budget consumers who wants to get in on the ios fad...
I think Nexus 7 and iPad mini can't be compared directly, mainly because they represent different systems. They all have their advantages and disadvantages and are the best cheapish tablet for their eco-systems. It comes down to a matter of choise and was a strategic move for Apple. Now when you want to spend $350 on a tablet, iOS is not out of the question. Nexus is better on paper, but the larger and wider screen of the Mini will make it more suitable for reading and browsing. Dual core is still sufficient enough for that resolution and iPad 2 proves it.
The AF rear camera and /presumably/ metal back cover add a lot of value to the iPad mini. Also the thin bezel and overall design is really nice. Many people will buy it... at least until Google starts shipping 32GB Nexus 7 for $249.
Interestingly the new iPod touch seems better than the iPad mini on paper if we don't count the screen size. And it's cheaper :)
AnonD-72568, 23 Oct 2012Not bad at all, but useless for those who already purchased a full size ipad. Nevertheless, it... moreCan't complete with android tabs?? Have you gone crazy? Ipads are 1 million times better than those cheap android tabs.
gomez, 23 Oct 2012BORING...just proved how HYPOCRITE APPLE is now when they criticized a 7INCH tablet...now they... moreWhen they criticized 7 inch tabs??? you must be drinking.. they mentioned bigger display phones.. not tablets...
Art, 23 Oct 2012Really? How exactly does it differentiate from 1, and 2. You mean looks the sameCheck your eyes buddy.. it looks very different form ipad 1,2 n 3...!
Not bad at all, but useless for those who already purchased a full size ipad. Nevertheless, it will attract more women than men. However, it cannot compete with the latest android tabs
asdf, 23 Oct 2012it looks like....the note 2!!!More like iPod touch 5... Dont bluff!
Art, 23 Oct 2012My phone has more RAM... yawnMy PC has more ram too.. but that doesnt matter... Ram performance depends on which os is running.. iPad runs smooth in 512mb ram!
so much money for such a basic set of hardware-y???
ipad mini >>> bottom of the food chain.
its funny hearing how Apple with the iph5 was a elongated iphone 4 now this is a stretched ipad widthwise lool
