Kindle Vs Ipad Mini

by TGN

The Ipad Mini was just unveiled by Apple. Lately Apple has become a disappointment somewhat. The Iphone 5 being extremely similar to the Iphone 4S. The Iphone 4S being similar to the Iphone 4, The Ipad 3 being almost identical to the Ipad 4 and now the Ipad Mini………Where has the creativity gone?

The Ipad mini is supposed to be a premium device….or thats what Apple says. In one of my previous reviews, Ipad Mini vs the world, I shared how it would be targeting the likes of Kindle, Nexus etc. Well with the specs that the Mini has, it might target these tablets, but I doubt if it would succeed. Why? Simply because the Ipad Mini just doesn’t have the hardware to compete with such tablets. The worst part is that it still costs more. Lets check out the specs below.

  • Compared to the iPad mini, Kindle Fire HD 8.9” has:
    • 193% more pixels (2,304,000 pixels vs. 786,432 pixels)
    • 56% more pixels-per-inch (254 vs. 163)
    • Watch HD movies and TV – cannot on iPad mini (iPad mini is an SD device)
    • Better audio with dual stereo speakers and Dolby Digital Plus
    • Wi-Fi with dual band, dual antennas + MIMO
    • Costs $30 less
  • Compared to the iPad mini, Kindle Fire HD 7” has:
    • 30% more pixels (1,024,000 vs. 786,432 pixels)
    • 33% more pixels per inch (216 vs. 163)
    • Watch HD movies and TV – cannot on iPad mini (iPad mini is an SD device)
    • Better audio with dual stereo speakers and Dolby Digital Plus
    • Wi-Fi with dual band, dual antennas + MIMO
    • Costs $130 less

Apple seriously needs to change their game if they want to retain the brand recognition they have. If you’re looking for a compact device its pretty obvious which has more value for the buck but of course this wont stop Apple fans (including me) to get the Mini.
