Not a fan boy....never will be! I did, however, recently move from an Android OS phone to the iPhone5 simply because I wanted to try something different (..and take advantage of some of the BMW integration benefits).

Get one. Maybe it will have spelling and grammar check.

Well, at least you don't have an agenda with this thread. Carry on.

I'm wanting to sell my iPad for the Nexus10. I've used the iPad for awhile now for notes in college and I'm just not satisfied with Apple products

Since we already have a iPhone 4S and 5, as well as an ipad 2 and a 3, I don't see the need for a mini. That said, i'll try one out at some point and perhaps replace the 2 with a mini. The ipad is just a bit larger than I need to comfortably read on it.

Yes, I have been eyeing up the ipad for some time, but the cost was a limiting factor. However the mini is at a more attractive price point and does not (to me) lose any of the ipad benefits.

I have the iphone 4S and like the idea of an affordable apple tablet. I like the synchronization / standardization of the apps and data the IOS devices share.

The price is quite lower and also as you pointed out doesn't lose the iPad benefits and I believe it has iPhone 5 quality's with the build

Lol I know whoever posted that is dumb. I was like really that's your deciding factor for not getting a certain tablet? He must be barefoot becuase most shoes are made in sweatshops.

Useless, I have an ipad2, ipad3, hp touchpad, and a samsung galaxy 7, the 7" Samsung was the first tablet I brought so I used it for awhile, then I brought the HP touchpad and gave it to the wife, she didn't use it much as she prefer a bigger screen. It just sat there collecting dust until I sold it to my sister in law for cheap, she loves it b/c it fits in her purse. Today's phones are close to 5", you don't need a 7" tablet.

so people need to stop correcting when they don't know what their talking about.
