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.
Quality iPad for Business or Personal Use
Got the iPad3 with Retina display and overall, very pleased. I have it linked with Google Drive and now can work on documents while on the go which is great. Also great for watching movies via Netflix or Amazon Instant Video. Also works great using AirPlay for streaming to speakers elsewhere in the house. While it is true that you will find other products for a cheaper price the truth is that the iPad (like most Apple products), just work.
Despite the above negative points, there's no doubt we're still looking at a top contender in the tablet race once again. Apple's greatest strength has always been fusing together some headline features with an OS that just works, and will appeal to the largest amount of people.
Should you buy it over the Â£399 of the iPad 4 or the Â£269 of the iPad mini?
There's no denying that the Apple new iPad is a stylish, desirable tablet, and its Retina Display is simply stunning. It also packs plenty of power under the hood thanks to its A5X SoC, combining a dual-core processor with quad-core graphics all without sacrificing battery life or putting the iPad 3's starting price over Â£400. iOS 5.1 looks better than ever before, as do the apps and games that take advantage of the iPad 3's stunning 2,048 x 1,536 resolution.
Improved processor and a bigger battery
Extra horsepower from the revised quad-core graphics processor has been funnelled into maintaining the iPad 2's top-notch graphics performance when tasked with driving four times as many pixels. An improved rear camera is not universally essential, and nor is an uprated modem for next-gen cellular services that are unavailable in most parts of the world.
Look, you either want an iPad or you don't. There's no pressure to buy one. But the Retina Display makes this so far and away the best release yet, this is a great time to climb on board the iPad train. It certainly gets more right than wrong.
The dedicated apps now number 200,000, way higher than rivals. The hardware remains gloriously well designed and works with great efficiency. And an iPad is a gadget which quickly becomes essential, even though it stays luxurious.
High-resolution display is crisp and colourful
Apple's new iPad is the best tablet money can buy, thanks to winning software and a killer app selection. The new screen, camera and processor are welcome additions, though they're modest improvements compared to the still compelling iPad 2. As such, if you already own an iPad, you shouldn't feel at pains to upgrade.
Solid upgrade in terms of connectivity and imaging
The third-gen iPad has a standard-setting screen, and is a solid upgrade in terms of connectivity and imaging. That's enough to justify an upgrade even from the iPad 2, but we are yet to see what the quad-core droids have to say in the next few months. Windows 8 tablets will be next. One thing we know we shouldn't expect from Apple is a next iPad. Yes, you guessed it right - it will be a new iPad.
