Love my mini
I love my mini iPad. Cost was more at amazon than I saw at a couple other places, but ordering was easy and came promptly, packaged well. I love the size and functionality of the mini iPad. I did trade a kindle for the iPad because I wanted the camera, front and rear facing camera. I also wanted ability to do FaceTime. I'm extremely happy with my purchase and would recommend it over any other.
Extremely light and portable
Can we see someone owning an iPhone 5, iPad mini and new iPad 4? Actually, maybe...and not just the pointlessly rich. The iPhone is the perfect device for hopping in and out of content, giving you the internet all the time and generally allowing you to play more simple games.
The iPad mini is perfect for a train ride: it's just the right size for a few TV episodes when packed nose to nose with fellow commuters before slipping it back into a bag or pocket when leaping for your platform.
Takes good photos & videos for a tablet
In the moment that the iPad mini was announced to feature a starting price point of $330, we were left wondering in confusion as to why? Factoring in its hardware specs and all, it would lead anyone to believe that this latest iPad is rather over-bloated at $330, which is still seen as a considerable investment over other highly prized tablets.
Stunning brushed metal design
Certainly the most desirable 7-inch tablet on the market, the iPad mini's £269 starting price is considerably higher than the competition but for that outlay you get a device that, although not specs superior, is a far more enticing option than much of what is already on the market.
Combining a brushed aluminium back with seamlessly curved edges and a fascia that will be familiar to full-sized iPad owners, the iPad mini is a device that looks and feels every penny that you pay for it.
Workmanship, feel, choice of materials and stability
From our point of view, Apple's iPad Mini is the perfect secondary device alongside a smartphone. It is not too small and not too big and unhandy for mobile use either. The available battery runtimes make a convincing impression. In view of the first sales figures, the iPad Mini could become the new leader of this size category despite a few points of criticism. In addition to selecting the ecosystem, it of course has to fit in the budget.
Higher pixel density than the original iPad and iPad 2
The iPad mini is a premium small tablet, with a price to match. It's a shame Apple couldn't have included a Retina screen and newer processor - expect the iPad mini 2 to get those updates when it launches later this year. This Wi-Fi only model also lacks GPS. It's not cheap by any stretch, especially if you want more storage spare or the 3G/4G cellular version, but it's great value compared to a full-size iPad.
More portable, still a big screen, light
The iPad mini is the new iPad to lust after. It's a lot more manageable. It a lot more kid-friendly, it's a lot more game-friendly. It is a lot more "you" friendly.
It's a lovely size, it's a lovely experience, and one that we can easily see cannibalising iPad 4 and iPad 2 sales in the future. That's not to say there isn't a place for the iPad in your tablet world, but just that this is good enough to become the "lead" iPad, at least in our minds.
Super thin and quite light
From the moment I put my hands on the iPad mini, I confess I loved it. It's that perfect tweener size: it doesn't feel as cramped and compromised when watching video or viewing web pages as 7" tablets and the 4:3 aspect ratio works so well for portrait use when reading eBooks, Word documents and web pages. It's supremely thin and quite light, and I found that just like my Nexus 7 (previously my 7" tablet of choice) I carry it everywhere. That's something I can't say about my 10" tablets.
Kudos to Acer! It was clear right from outset of this review that the Acer Iconia B1 was not fighting for a crown in the tablet market. Nevertheless, we had very high expectations for the first "low-budget" tablet from a brand manufacturer. And Acer did not let us down. The B1 is the first tablet at a price of 120 Euros (RRP) that is an attractive buy. However, it was to be expected that the buyer has to make compromises in the hardware to keep the device price down.
You can really work well with the tablet. All multimedia contents are reproduced well. Also, Internet surfing is good and fast, thanks to the Wi-Fi module very well. However, my display is broken. An interchangeable Accu like smartphones would be helpful. Then the machine would reboot and my screen would then remain functioning.
Mid-grade tablet for low price
Mid-grade tablet for low price. It is not the greatest tablet on the market today, but for the size and the operating system, It is a fairly cheap price for what your looking for. I had purchased mine simply for the fact to download games and learning programs for my son, along with a couple of apps for myself. It was working fine for the first 8-10 days, then the touchpad would not respond to my finger. I ended up returning the unit in exchange for another one.
WOW! IMPRESSIVE DEVICE FOR THE MONEY!!
This device rivals some of the nicer tablets I have used(Polaroid, HP, etc). Most importantly, the touch screen is very responsive and not cheaply constructed like most of the lower grade tablets . Its actually glass, instead of the cheap plastic, which is a BIG plus when it comes to kids and cleaning it. Although its not "true" HD display, the widescreen format and resolution are surprisingly comparative to it.
Great phone/tablet phablet!
Had it for a few weeks now, working great. I drain the battery too quickly with my gaming. Phone works, tablet working but laggy or slow. It's my first tablet so I really don't know how good it is. Still learning to use it, but I like so far. Fit in needs. Part of my decision to get his with 3G or 2G is because I don't plan to use it that way. I am working with wi-fi and speed varied by provider and I have my own wireless mobile hotspot.
