I am super thrilled with this tablet after being turned away from the android offerings because of a puzzling lack of functionality.
Although this size might not be right for everyone for me the 7-8 inch ballpark is where I've always wanted to be.
Before I start talking about this iPad let me give you some background as to why I chose this offering.
First off I have recently returned a Nexus 7 and a Galaxy note 10.1.
Without doing full unwanted reviews on those products, lets just say that the particular Nexus 7 I got, had a bad wifi antenna (might just be me, but this happened on two models)
And the Note 10.1 was incompatible with most of the great apps I had purchased for my Nexus, plus, it was too big for my taste.
Flash- forward a few days, and i am first in line for the ipad mini.
The ipad mini is an ipad 2 with better cameras shrunken down to a more ideal size.
Thats all you need to know, really!
Theres nothing crazy new or revolutionary about it, but after what I had experienced with the android offerings I had chosen this worked for me!
If you like a bigger size i'd look at the nexus 10 or the ipad 4th gen but as it stands I love my new ipad.
I'm sure that soon it will include retina and A6 chips, but as for now I think I'll just enjoy owning a tablet that works!
