So what? How exactly are you comparing 8" tablets to 7" tablets? Not to mention, a fast dual core chip is in some cases faster than a Tegra 3 quad core...
Also $250 for a 32GB Nexus 7? How about $340 for an 80GB Samsung 8.0? Pick up a $40 64GB micro SD card and away you go. Plus both the Samsung 8 and the Mini have HDMI out via external adapters, and the Mini has a far superior battery life to the Nexus 7 (no word on the Samsung 8 battery yet).
I've had both Nexus 7 and a Mini at the same time. Unless you are a hardcore Android gamer, the Mini is a far superior experience. The extra $60 is worth the bigger screen, better battery, lighter weight and HDMI out (Which is awesome).
They are not apples to apples comparisons. Also if you read my post correctly you may have realized that I was suggesting what Google should be doing with the new iteration of the Nexus 7 (in other words copy the competitors best features), not advocating buying the Mini or Samsung 8 over the Nexus 7.
And btw, the Mini is selling for $309, not $329 Edited by Robilar - 7/10/13 at 8:40am
