iPad Mini or Nexus 7? Which one is right for You? 


iPad Mini or Nexus 7? The answer to this question is slightly more complicated than it may seem. The answer is dependent on what you want and need in a 7-inch tablet. Both are very good 7-inch tablets in my opinion, and there are pluses and minuses to both of them.The first factor you need to consider, is pricing. How much are you willing to pay?

The iPad mini's pricing goes as follows:

16GB: $329 (WiFi only)

$459 (WiFi+cellular)

32GB: $429 (WiFi only)

$559 (WiFi+cellular)

64GB: $529 (WiFi only)

$659 (WiFi+cellular)

ZAGGkeys: iPad Keyboard + Case Photo Review

ZAGGkeys is a very slim and elegant keyboard for iPad that serves three purposes: a keyboard, a stand and a case.

The main reason why we chose it was that it has backlit keys (I often work at night).

Overall I enjoyed the keyboard: I still need to better get used to it but I found no flaws so far: It looks great and it should serve its purpose perfectly (to me that purpose was turning my iPad into the work tool while on the go).

Unboxing: iPad mini (16GB White WiFi)

Well, here it is, guys! The unboxing of my first iPad. I've always been a fan of small tablets, as you know from my previous purchase of a Nexus 7. Now that Apple makes one, this device seemed like the perfect fit for me. I'm excited to explore the tablet world with an OS I know and love. Expect tons of videos in the coming week!

As mentioned in the video, my first impressions are that the iPad mini is extremely light, thin and well built. The non-Retina display is not a problem at all, for me. I was expecting much worse from what I'd heard in the media. I haven't experienced lag at all yet and the 7.9" screen is wider than most tablets of a similar size, making it seem much larger when it use. In short, I'm in love. But expect a first impressions video ASAP.

New Kindle Fire, iPad Mini & Sept 12th Event

It's no secret that I've been a fan of 7" tablets for quite some time. With the introduction of the Kindle Fire 2 & Kindle Fire HD yesterday, I think it is time for Apple to accept the competition and release an iPad Mini. Will this happen on Sept. 12th?

What are your thoughts on this subject? I think that with the Nexus 7, especially, Apple has some serious competition at nearly $300 cheaper. An inexpensive, shrunken iPad would do extremely well. Countless customers at Best Buy come to me saying they want an iPad but they don't want to pay $499 for a larger screen. An ultraportable tablet is just what Apple needs!

Thanks for watching/subscribing/rating/commenting! You guys just ROCK!
