Right now there’s an abundance of facts from the most up-to-date consumer trade shows, it’s hard to get important info with the current deluge. This provides a superb summary of some of the most recent developments.
That brings it closer to the 16GB Wi-Fi-only iPad mini at 269 inc VAT. When you consider that the Nexus device is subsidised by Google in order to drive Android use and gather advertiser data, that’s a pretty close-run thing. (It makes the iPad mini seem very cheap next to the equivalent Android tablets outside the Nexus fold.) The gap increases as you go up the scale in terms of specs, however. At 32GB Wi-Fi only the iPad mini will cost you 349 and the equivalent Nexus 7 2 only 239. Add in 4G to that model and the prices are 449 vs 299 in Google’s favour. Whichever way you slice it the Nexus 7 2 is cheaper than the iPad mini. But there are more options with the iPad. You can’t get 64GB Wi-Fi only, 16GB Wi-Fi + 4G or 64GB Wi-Fi + 4G Nexus 7 tablets, but you can get those models of iPad mini.
