This thread makes me think a nexus 7 is a better idea.

I've had the 1,2,and 3rd gen iPads and as much as I enjoyed them all, I gotta say taking the Nexus 7 for this holiday weekend has been such a treat. It did everything I threw at it and then some.

This is just personally, but holding the N7 over the Mini just feels overall better in the hand.

I got it paired with this case http://www.speckproducts.com/fitfoli...e-nexus-7.html

Perfect travel device. Didn't even need to bring my MBA for the trip.

N7 and case cost $250....def worth every penny

Who wants a tablet to run phone apps?
I can't believe he puts his tablets on a surface that can easily scratch the tablet screen and back.

It would be nice if those cases stayed in stock!

I got mine at a local Office Max. Check it out if you have one locally. Plus no need for shipping costs and waiting times.

Having a mini for 2 weeks now I can tell you it is really the apps that make the difference. The web browser screen is not great - not terrible but not great. However, the actually iPad apps look great and work great. The difference between stretched phone apps and real iPad apps is truly amazing.
Love my mini.
Wait, so the mini is your first tablet, you never owned or used a Nexus 7, and yet, somehow you know that apps make the THAT much of a difference? Despite that fact that you have zero expierence directly in comparing the two and you are assuming that apps are stretched or are phone apps, but again, have no idea what so ever, specifically?

It's great you love your mini, but stop talking about stuff you know nothing about directly, you are spreading bad information and providing a disservice to anyone looking for true, honest and unbiased information.

I've not had any situations where I couldn't find a good tablet version of an app i needed on my Nexus 7.

This is a good starting place:
