Choosing Between Two Cool Tablets


There are people who are loyal to a certain brand no matter what its competition comes up with. This is the same with loyalists of computer giant Apple.

Display – Since the mini is smaller, its display is also reduced. It only has a 7.9-inch (diagonal) display, which is almost 2 inches smaller compared to iPad 2’s 9.7-inch display. If you want to view photos or…
