As a daily user of an iPad and a Nexus 7, I was finally exposed to an iPad mini today. Worked a few hours with it. Now I know why this sucker is so successful.
Hmm. I have one too and I love it - so do my two women. But I would not dare to say "I worked with it" ... iPad is surfing, playing, reading, remote controlling and lots more. Just enough to justify the buy. It.just.works.
I have worked with it. I will *never* go back to a full size iPad. The only downside is remote access screensize is smaller. But, far too many positives.
Paul, 2nd downside is the non-retina display. And while I did not try it Baldur's Gate probably would be also less enjoyable. Anyway as soon as it gers Retina there'll be a third iPad in the house :-)
I love the iPad Mini! Retina would be fine. ;-)
Retina is lost on me. I had a Retina iPad, but got rid of it for the form factor of the mini.
The non-retina screen is most often criticized by people who don't own an iPad mini. The screen is so much smaller than the 10" iPad. Why would it need the same resolution?
The iPad Mini doesnot need the same resolution as the iPad retina, but a somewhat better resolution would be fine. I use the iPad Mini at a much closer distance to my eyes then the iPad.
A somewhat better resolution would break all apps and their icons.
