Apple, the boat is over there. You’ve missed it.

Before the iPad Mini  announcement I was actually holding my breath to see what they would charge for one. Having being converted from Android phones to an iPhone I thought that maybe replacing my lovely Nexus 7 would be a great choice.

However Apple  are charging £269 for the 16gb Wifi iPad Mini .
£269!!! Are they having a laugh? That’s a massive £100 more expensive then it’s Nexus 7 counterpart.

They’ve tried to say that using a 7″ tablet isn’t a enjoyable. I have to disagree. The Nexus 7 is an excellent tablet. If the iPad would’ve been around the £200 mark I may have been interested but £269? Not a chance. At this price point all they have done is they have given the Nexus’ and Kindle’s of this world a license to carry on as normal.

Don’t get me wrong they will still sell shedloads of the devices, but they haven’t just missed the boat at the last minute, stepped off the dock and into water here. They’ve stepped off the dock on another continent to the boat!
