I really don't see any reason to buy this. It's a smaller IPAD, yet a larger Ipod. Was there ever a market for this? I'm not convinced.
It's godfreaking Apple.

As someone deeply into tech, of course you won't be. But the public don't even know what a tablet is. Yet, they know what an iPad is.

Remember that story about people returning Galaxy Tabs in America because they weren't 'as cool' as iPads? That's how people see the iPad.
That's what i mean. People only buy these for the 'coolness' factor. They don't actually give anything else, it's just the stigma associated with other tablets which makes apple strive - granted, their design is second to none. But really should people be spending £500 upwards for design? I, personally, wouldn't but i'm not here to tell people what to buy.

no 32GB, $250 for 16gb. which kinda makes you feel like you pay even more for the brand.

Impressed by 4th generation iPad... everything else was okay, but it would have been better with more aggressive pricing.

What does the Nexus have that the ipad mini doesn't? For the most part all tablets (consumer grade) in terms of what they can and can not do are extremely similar. It's just a preference of brand at this point in time. Honestly for most things on tablets, screen res means very little considering how close most are to each other ( not including retina, since the actual res, and displayed res are different, and displayed res is usually about the same as the rest ).

Also who says there won't be a low level exploit to allow dual booting into an Android install as well as the iOS install. Get the best of both worlds thumb.gif

Well then you obviously understand why people would buy it and why this will very much hurt Nexus 7 sales.
