Pros This is real iPad, very good form factor, lightweight, good battery, compatible with large great app library, really portable.
Cons Low screen resolution.
Summary Very good small tablet. Nice design, lightweight, every bit an iPad. Only one draw back: is screen resolution, witch is very important because it is the only way to interact with product. But it my not be a problem for some one new to apple retina world. I own iPhone, MacBook Pro retina, so I live in retina world. And for me it is an issue. If you on a market to get small media player (iPod touch), I would really recommend to take a look at this product. You won't be sorry!
Pros Bigger screen yet incredibly thin and light. Other Kindle and Nexus devices feel old & clunky. B&N (11 oz) feels noticeably lighter than Kindle Fire HD and Nexus (14 oz & 12 oz), but Apple mini iPad (8 oz) feels much lighter.
Cons Higher price balanced off by massively superior construction.
Summary The Apple iPad Mini is massively superior to the Kindle and Nexus. You really have to actually hold these devices to appreciate the difference. For book reading the difference is huge. Bigger screen makes web surfing much better on the mini iPad. If you want a device to read over a long period of time, none of the other devices comes close.
Pros 275,000 apps, iCloud,easy access to purchases from iTunes Store and more
Cons lighting connector,the price (holiday's around the counter a drop of $40-$60 will happen count on it), no retina display
Summary It's a great for children or folks who don't have $499 sent on a dime!! It's an IPad it's still the best tablet on the market period hands down. It's give a everyone a better price point for starters then before and this is attempt to draw sales alway from the IPad 2. I welcome the IPad Mini and 4G models
Pros Got amazing quality all in a small package.
Cons Got nothing wrong this is a piece of magic.
