I'm old enough to have learned not to pay much attention to the Apple/Windows/Android/Linux etc. comparisons. The discussions usually turn into flame wars which aren't worth my time or effort. I like the N7 and others like the iPad. I've got better maps and they've got a better screen. So what?For the same reason, I mostly stay out of the political stuff, the Canon/Sony debates, the white or wheat bread, etc.For the members who in the future will link this post in rebuttal to something I've said, please notice that I've said "mostly" and usually.
I think the iPad mini is partially getting shot down more than the new iPhone because it's a new device. Like a lot of Apple products, the general populous will buy them regardless of design and function. Take the 4s, essentially the same exact device as the 4, save for one widget named siri. The iPad is basically the same thing, new device label, same guts. Now look at the mini. Apple is trying to push its way into an already well established market, with quality competition, and devices people can base opinion on. They also are banking on their customers Ade foolish enough to buy without question as to quality or function, just because it has worked in the past. Personally, I think the company is beginning to make a large mistake in assuming people will buy blindly. I'm glad to see that it appears to be false.
