I don't know whether to be excited about the Nexus 10 anymore frown.gif It's only a dual core non-tegra device. I've been pushing my GF to get a Nexus 7 for ages but she says it's too small.

I'm still loving the CM9 HP Touchpad thumb.gif Android FTW!

ICS brought some of my devices out of retirement. My old DINC AOKP ICS is a cool little phone for my wife.
BTW it looks more like an apple than a GNEX or a SIII.

If Apple had priced the mini at $300, they would dominate. Instead, they decided to maintain the premium price tag.

So true, Apple has surely shown its level of quality with the iPhone 5...lawls

Some Android tablets win in price and quality.

It's not even price.

If they maintained a 'retina' quality display on the mini, it would a viable competitor for Android tablets. By crippling the tablet that was their entry into the world of budget tablets, they doomed themselves.

I'd match my Toshiba AT270 against my IPad 2 at any time with respect to quality. Build is better, it's lighter (mind you only a 7.7" screen), HDMI out, MIcro SD etc. Also much better screen quality for video playback (hard to beat Super AMOLED+). Sure the cheaper Android tablets (Nexus 7 for example) don't compare to Apple in build quality but then again they are much less expensive.

Didn't I just read an article that was linked here about how Apple uses glue to assemble the IPad Mini? rolleyes.gif

Every time I hear the Apple has better apps comment, I wonder who exactly decided this. I haven't yet found a need for one of my Android tablets that could not be fulfilled with an Android app. Sure there are more Apple apps to choose from but I am still waiting to see where they are better. Quantity does not equal better quality.

For example, try finding a good ereader app on the Apple. Their IBooks is average (at best). Stanza is so so and hasn't had an update in almost a year. On the Android side, Coolreader (which grabs series metadata), Aldiko, etc. And there are about 10 more great reading apps. For video playback, try playing an mkv file with an IPad without buying an app for it. Better yet, try putting video or books on the IPad without using ITunes as a hosting mechanism...

I bought a Nexus 7 32GB and my wife got a Kindle Fire HD 32GB. Both were only a little more than one ipad mini.

Could not justify a £150 price hike over the Nexus when I we got both for a little more than the ipad on its own...
