On Tuesday last week, Apple launched its smaller version of iPad called ‘iPad Mini’ starting at the price tag of $329. Definitely, it’s considered as most expensive device of 7-inch category. Amazon has just revealed how Kindle Fire HD Tablet is better than Apple’s iPad Mini especially in terms of screen resolution. The retail giant has entitled the comparison “Much More for Much Less”.  (see the image below)

Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD has 30% more pixels density compare to Apple’s iPad Mini— 216 pixels per inch vs 163 ppi. In addition to this, Amazon is offering HD movies and TV on Kindle Fire HD at the very affordable price tag of $199, while iPad Mini does not facilitate HD movies and TV.  Besides, Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD features dual stereo speaker, while iPad Mini possesses single stereo speaker.

It’s pretty-clear that Apple is endeavoring to generate high profit margin on iPad Mini Tablet. Of course, in 7-inch Tablet category, iPad Mini could face stiff resistance from Kindle Fire HD and Google Nexus 7.



Google and Amazon is offering their 16 GB Tablets at the very affordable price tags. Google is expected to offer 16 GB version of Nexus 7 Tablet at the price tag of $199, while at the same price tag, Amazon is offering its Kindle Fire HD Tablet. On the other side, the starting price of base model of iPad Mini without cellular connectivity is $329 –users will have to pay $429 for 16 GB cellular version. In terms of price, Apple’s iPad Mini is quite expensive compare to Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD Tablets.


In terms of processor, Nexus 7 is quite ahead of the iPad Mini. Apple’s iPad Mini has dual-core A5 processor clocked at the speed of 1 GHz, while Google Nexus has 1.3 GHz NVIDIA quad core Tegra 3 processor and Kindle Fire HD has dual-core processor clocked at the speed of 1.2 Ghz. Clearly, Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD Tablets are ruling over Apple’s iPad mini in terms of processor speed.

Screen Resolution:


iPad Mini features 1024 x 768 pixels screen resolution (with pixel density of 163 ppi). In comparison, both Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD are equipped with 1280 x 800 pixels HD display with pixels density of 216 ppi.

Of course, Google Nexus 7 Tablet and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD are no way vulnerable than Apple’s iPad Mini. However, in terms of camera, Apple is ahead of Nexus 7 and Kindle Fire HD. iPad Mini features 5 MP rear facing-camera that’s not available in Kindle Fire HD and Nexus 7.

Really, it’s ridiculous to spend $329 or $429 to own iPad Mini if more featured Tablets are available at just $199. In this context, one thing is quite obvious that Apple is endeavoring to leverage on its brand value. It’s also true that Apple fanatics remain obsessed to own the devices (offered by the company) and iPad Mini is the cheapest Tablet among all iPads. What would you like to own iPad Mini or Kindle Fire HD or Google Nexus 7?
