Nexus 7 with Cellular ($300), I’m Waiting for You!

I used to love my new iPad (iPad 3), but since I upgraded to iOS 6 my love to her gradually fading.

With $300 of price tag, the new Nexus 7 with cellular capability is too hard to be ignored.

iPad mini, Smaller and Lower Specs

iPad mini is out now, but I’m a bit dissapointed. Why? it’s more expensinve than Nexus 7 but has lower screen resolution and lower processor power. I don’t know why Apple decided to do this, I think it’s just a marketing strategy or they just want to get higher profit margin. iPad mini has been rumored for months and all prediction are cleared now. With prices starting at $329 (WiFi only) or $459 (cellular), iPad mini is 23 percent thinner and 53 percent lighter than iPad 3 (I think it’s the only good point, I own iPad 3 and it’s just too heavy to hold while sitting on the sofa).
