My wife currently has an older Nook Color, and I'm looking to get her a new one for Christmas. The iPad Mini and new Nook Color HD are about the same size, and both seem to have similar features except the Nook has an HD screen, and you can add an HDSC card for additional memory. We also have the iPad 3, and she has an iPhone, so there are some benefits to getting the Mini and having access to the Apple ecosystem. Have any of you guys actually compared the iPad Mini against the new Nook Color HD, and if so, what was your deciding factor? Thank you!
