The iPad Mini vs. The Nexus 7

In the following video, technology analysts Eric Bleeker and Andrew Tonner look at the iPad Mini and how it compares with the Nexus 7. Eric notes that the Nexus 7 is a strong competitor and that reports of its screen superiority are accurate. Its larger drawback is a screen that's significantly smaller than the iPad Mini, with a worse hardware build and a less vibrant selection of apps optimized for tablets.

However, Eric's one note of caution is that the Nexus 7's selling at cost might not leave room for other Android OEMs to compete in the space. That could be a problem with Google attracting more low-end tablet market share, and on the flip side it could limit Android's effectiveness competing against the Mini in the 7-inch segment in the year ahead.

The introduction of the iPhone 5 was an event Apple investors had been looking forward to for months.

    What does "worse hardware build" even mean here? What is worse about the Nexus 7 build? The screen that has less glare and higher PPI? The faster quad-core Tegra processor? If I had to guess, and I do because it's not addressed in the video, I would say maybe the Nexus 7 case because it's not a sheet of aluminum like the mini? Either way, this "review" seemed more like a review of the market for 7" tablets than a tech review...but maybe that's what this really is supposed to be?

    Thanks for the heads up, b jones. I'm in the market for a tablet. Novo 7 has all the features I've been hunting. Connectivity, good maps, and 32G for under 2 Bens. Yippee!
