With that said, I own an iPad mini, but lets be clear its probably the most expensive 7" tablet out on the market.
I bought a Kindle Fire HD for far less than the mini. A very good tablet.
However, still tried a mini but was not impressed. It felt like a bit of a an expensive kiddies toy so returned it.
Have now bought an iPad 4 to partner my iPad 2 which will probably go on ebay some time soon. You really can't beat a big boys tablet!
