The iPad mini is 60% more expensive and has 30% less pixels per inch than the nexus 7. Someone at Apple seriously lost touch with what made Apple so loved... innovation. The iPad mini is obviously a step backward if it isn't even putting up a higher resolution than $200 7" tablets. I will be waiting for the next iPad mini to come out. Maybe well get lucky and it will come out 6 months later like the retina iPad refresh. *edit* bad math. meant to say 60% more expensive.
