    You can expect the iPad Mini to be much like your iPhone 4, with a much larger screen.

    Saving $100 isn't worth it to everybody. It's not about price. It's about value.

    Works much better to have the same software and data on tablet and Phone.
    Since I got the iPad Mini, I haven't touched my Nexus 7 again.

    Full disclosure: I'm an Android guy... I have a GNex and a Nexus 7, and love them both. I've had an iPhone 4 before, and liked it.

    But I have to agree with the argument that an iPad mini/3/4th/whatever is the best choice if you already have an iPhone 4/4S/5. Tethering between the two is easier. The only other thing I could get connected to my iPhone 4 besides an iPad is a Blackberry Playbook. Having to deal with only one app store is also a killer argument IMHO.

    Whenever a friend asks me for advice about which tablet to choose, the first question I ask is: Do you have a smartphone, and if yes, which one? If I ear "iPhone", the first word out of my mouth is "iPad".

    Interested in offloading your Nexus 7?

    I really tried using a droid tablet and still have it because the resale is near zero. The Nexus 7 unfortunately is just a blown up android phone with a lack of apps and poor screen quality. I feel bad for the folks that wasted $200-$300 on one (and I'm one of them). I love gadgets, but the 7 was a big disappointment compared to any iPad.

    As far as using your new iPad vs and with an iPhone, I like all the news apps like Flipboard (and Zite, Pulse, News360) that all work great in portrait or landscape. Set up an account with them so you can read and bookmark stories on either device.

    I recommend using something like Pocket to mark stories for reading later (on any device).

    I like the iPad even better than the iPhone for apps because the iPad usually has more multi-touch gestures. Learn them. 5 finger pinch to desktop. 3 finger swipe between apps. And many, many swipe gestures.

    If you like RSS readers / google readers, I recommend Newsify for iPhone and iPad. It will sync between your devices so you only read new stories.

    Enjoy your iPad, I use mine more than all my PCs put together.

    I couldn't agree more. For a device that is my primary newsreader, ereader, web browser, video player, and all-around gadget I'm not going to pinch pennies.

    Just sold my Nexus 7 (resale value is crap) and got an iPad Mini. I have to agree with most people, its just overall a better tablet. The app selection is better, the build quality just feels like you got what you paid for and 329.00 while not cheap is definitely doable. The only gripe is the pixel density. I went from 216 to 163ppi. Other than that I'm good. This coming from an android user since the G1.

    Carrying around the iPad mini and my HTC DNA is just the best of both worlds.

    I sold my Nexus 7 too, and got $225 for my 32GB model. I just didn't enjoy Android. Its no where near as smooth as iOS. Im saving for an iPad 4 or will just wait for an iPad with Retina display.

    How funny. Flipboard has just recently been updated and optimized for the Nexus 7, and boy does it look and work great. Unlucky bud, maybe next time.

    Ditching the Nexus 7 for an iPad Mini was the best move you could make. I just did the same thing and here's no comparison. The Nexus 7 is OK but it's not even close to the quality of the IPad Mini.
