"Not worth it as competitors do better at lower prices!"0.5 starson by m_chan1
Pros: - It's an iPad, just smaller
- iOS is relatively simple to use, don't need to relearn anything for iOS
Cons: - Pricey as H#LL!
- Lousy resolution
- NO expansion slot
- Closed OS
Summary: Why bother owning this when you can get the iPad 3 which is much better?
Many people already listed the Cons against the iPad Mini so I won't really repeat the bulk of it.
Basically, if you want a smaller tablet, then get an Android version which 1) cost LESS, 2) has a better screen resolution and 3) has an expansion slot... basically getting more for your money!
My Samsung GT7Plus almost matches it in performance if not completely better than iOS even with an 7" instead of an 7.9" screen and I was able to add a 64Gb expansion card to its 16Gb internal storage for a whole lot less for more storage!
The iPad mini went back in function and design just to keep customers from leaving Apple since many people still can't afford the iPad except for Apple lovers/Fanboys!
If you're new to tablets, then it's fine.
If you already own an iPad and really like Apple, then it's also fine.
If you already own an iPad but want an updated tablet at an AFFORDABLE price with decent features/functions, look to the Android tablet!
It's either an iPad or Android tablet.
Each has their own strengths and weaknesses but the Android tablet will cost less than an iPad and cost IS an issue for MOST people!
I left an aging iPad original and didn't go back. Now to eventually do the same with the iPhone 4 once the contract ends!
