In the end, you have to make a choice between what you want a tablet for. Is it to just browse the web and check your email? If so, the Nexus 7 is a great device for that. But if you’d like to do those things as well as play a game here and there, read a book, and do a whole bunch more due to the availability of of nearly 300,000 apps, then the mini is the clear winner. It’s not that these other tablets are bad – it’s just that the iPad mini is so good.
