re: iPad Mini Vs. Nexus 7: Tablet Smackdown
Except that some have already tested the N7 vs the iPad 3, and the N7 has beaten the iPad. Since the Mini has lesser specs than the iPad 3, one would expect it to do even worse. So, advantage N7. (See techradar and itPro for the tests)
As for the apps, yes I agree that the iPad Mini should get the edge here. But, in terms of storage, the writer of the article is wrong. N7 not only will be getting a 32gb option in just a few days, but it supports the attachment of virtually any USB device, including huge external hard drives. Definitely an advantage for N7.
Net result is that N7 is the winner.
