Apple has always had a upper hand when it comes to mobile computing market. The evergreen iPhone and iPad are the true examples. Many tablets and smartphones were released to give these two a competition but it all provide futile as both these stood right there and made way for their successors.
If that was not enough, Apple made another move to take the dominance of the market by launching iPad Mini before the Google Nexus 7 hit the stores. The new iPad Mini is half the size of the existing iPad and it clearly gives an idea that its been made to compete with the likes of Google Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire.
It was clearly evident that the main focus is to completely take over the growing market as Schiller compared the iPad Mini with Google’s Nexus 7 tablet, citing feature by feature why the iPad Mini was superior compared to its couterparts.
From the first reviews, it looks that iPad Mini will surely prove to be a tough competitor as it boasts of almost all the specs as the existing iPad excluding the screen size. Its a Mini version so the screen size will definitely be small. Apple will surely make a dream run with this device if we go with the specs but the prize may prove to be a little hindrance in the dream run.
Apple’s iPad Mini is priced at $329 for the WiFi-only model where as the cheapest Amazon Kindle Fire comes at $159 and Google Nexus 7 has got a price tag of $249.
But it seems that Apple executives doesn’t care about this little hindrance as Tim Cook stated that Apple sold the 100 millionth iPad just two weeks before the launch; the first iPad went on sale in April 2012. That’s one hell of a benchmark, almost impossible for anyone to cross.
So what do you think will the iPad Mini do to the mobile computing market ? Is it capable to take over the whole market before Google Nexus 7 hit the stores ? Have you say …..
