If you watch the keynote and fast forward to where there is -17:25 remaining you can see how the nexus compares to the ipad mini which at 7.9' display has 7.7square inches more display area which is a third larger but the device footprint is about the same. Also you can see how apps/webpages look compared to each other.

Very interesting points and I'm glad I didn't get the nexus

And I like the 5mp rear facing camera that shoots 1080p plus the HD front camera for FaceTime

the only thing that makes me nervous on the Nexus is the quality control issues. There have been quite a few. I wonder if the price of the mini will drop right after Christmas? Might make it more attractive if it dropped to even 299.
I use my tablets primarily for ebook reading at night. I love the 'GoodReader' app for the ipad. Have yet to find a comparable program for my Android tablet. I use 2-3 different apps on that, and none as good as GoodReader.

A friend of mine had a nexus but had screen separation issues straight out the box.

I tried his for a little bit and what I didn't' like was the youtube app would get audio out of sync 1/2 the time and it would struggle/mess up/lockup whenever I would jump to different spots during the video. Also web pages were small in landscape mode and thats why I'm excited that the ipad mini shows 67% more compared to the nexus in landscape mode for webpages. 49% larger in portrait.

Does anyone have a PC based video game they recommend? I am not so interested in games similar to World of Warcraft.

Thanks,

Dave

I haven't used my wifes nexus a whole lot but we haven't had any issues with it. I had to soft reset it once since we've had it and we got it when it first came out.

I have the g2x phone from t-mobile and I have to pull the battery at least twice a day in order to reset it.

I'm gonna smash it with a hammer really soon

Battlefield 3 is epic on PC.

Counterstrike:GO is a fun FPS also.

Though you need a pretty darn good computer to run it well.

Minecraft. I have no idea if its similar to warcraft. I'm guessing no though despite the similar name. Warning: this game is somewhat addicting.

I don't get all the shock at the price of the iPad mini... the only close Android competitor is the Kindle Fire 8.9", which goes for $299 and is crippled with no Google Play access. So the Apple product is $30 more... not so surprising.

I personally think the 7 inch Android screens are too small... and the iPad mini's smaller bezel makes it around the same case size with something like 40% more screen area.

Of course I'm already all set up with my TF300 tablet and Galaxy S3 running Jelly Bean.
