The only reason I'd really consider getting an iOS tablet is because currently it's the only mobile platform Games Workshop is putting it's digital publications on. Apparently android versions are coming someday, but for now...

Ok, iOS also has the Final Fantasy Tactics re-release on it. That too.

Theaetetus: TNel: Theaetetus: TNel: The appeal of the 7" tablets and the 8.9" tablet from Samsung is that it fits into pockets. The last I looke the mini was too big to fit into pockets

Supposedly, it's an 8" tablet, so if an 8.9" fits in your pocket, the 8" should.

/and are you wearing cargo pants or something, 'cause that's still pretty big

16:9 4:3 how does it work

4:3, 8" - 6.39*4.81
16:9, 8.9" = 7.76*4.36

You're telling me that that half inch is standing in the way between pocketability and nothing?


From Gizmodo, yes it was a rumor site but a lot of times they are accurate and yes it could change that's why I said they could have changed it which would have made my point invalid but we will see when official specs are released.

machoprogrammer: WTF is the point to the iPad mini?


To challenge the 'successful' android tablets, like the Kindle Fire and the Nexus 7, which both have smaller screens.

People who don't want a big screen, or want to spend £500 on an iPad, but still want a tablet for some reason, are buying smaller, cheaper 7" ones. Now Apple can have them too.

machoprogrammer: WTF is the point to the iPad mini? Isn't that just an iPod or an iPhone?


What's the point of a 7" tablet don't we have android phones. There is a market for a tablet that's less than 10" (9.7" for Apple) but I think they are missing the boat with the size of their device. The appeal of the 7" tablets and the 8.9" tablet from Samsung is that it fits into pockets. The last I looke the mini was too big to fit into pockets, they could have changed it since I last looked but I have no desire to even pull up the stats anymore since it will sell well anyway just because it's an iDevice.
