Default Tomorrow I buy the iPad mini

Yes you read that right! Unlike a poster by the name of iBreakbeat who is scared to death to try anything new in fear of realizing he might actually like it; I myself will be buying an iPad tomorrow.

It was a hard decision that I went back and forth on for two weeks. Since i've had numerous Android phones, I figured getting an Android tablet wouldn't give me much of a different experience to justify spending several hundred dollars.

I will use this ipad mini casually although i'm dreading a horrible web experience without flash or safari as a default browser (what a joke). But I will take advantage of the wide array of tablet apps that iOS has.

I'm dreading the lack of true multi-tasking, no widgets, and the fact that i've paid for over 50 apps on Android I won't be able to use.

But like the true Technology enthusiast that I am, I am always looking for a new technological experience without letting my fanboyism hinder my decisions.


I will follow up with my impressions on the ipad and the apple world.

Please explain why? I really have no use for a tablet besides games/media/web browsing.

I have an asus ultrabook that I absolutely love for my laptop needs and don't plan on changing that for at least another year.

It came down to nexus 7 and ipad mini for me, but I have the galaxy Nexus which would give me the exact same experience, but in a bigger size so opted for the ipad mini.


You will LOVE the google experience on the nexus 7! The Android app ecosystem is still not on par with iOS, but that was the same for cell phones and that has now diminished as android and iOS are pretty equal in app ecosystem.

The nexus 7 does have better specs than ipad mini, including screen resolution and processor.

I bought my wife the new Ipad with retina display. She just really wanted the Ipad. I'm more into customising my shit though so I want to go google.

Good man, its daft being a fan boy, especially when you are not on the payroll or sitting on a ton of stock options, it just makes you look short sighted and with a closed mind.
Im sure there will be a ton of things you hate and love about it and you definitely don't need a Mac to enjoy an iPad

For a tablet, the mini or nexus7are the to get but from a cnet review,the nexus had no rear facing camera and the store is not so good. play store may have less than app for phones but not that far behind now at all. the tablet market is however quite far behind but like maybe 2years ago is catching up fast.
