$130 more per unit, at least in the US.Only $100'sh more expensive, but you are getting quality over the cheap tablets from the competition. How is the screen worst?
That is true but the gap is becoming much smaller and the number of tablet optimised apps is increasing, of all the apps on my phone that I have on my tablet only 3 are not tablet optimised.....Scramble with Friends, Scrabble & Speedtest.netYes they have native tablet apps but the depth and breadth of iPad apps is much greater.
Also most tablet apps come out to iPad before Android.
Of course, but is there really that much an iPad mini does that a Nexus 7 doesn't? So unless you are totally invested in either eco system price will play a huge part in the decision making process.Too expensive is what the market won't pay for them. If it sells well, it's not too expensive, and I have no doubt it will sell well.
Is it a better value proposition than a Nexus 7 or other $200 tablet? Well that's entirely subjective on the part of every consumer. If a $200 Android tablet doesn't do what you want, then it doesn't matter how much cheaper it is. If it doesn't do what you want as well as an iPad Mini, then it becomes a subjective judgement of worth. I'm sure there are plenty of people who will fall on either side of that line.
Millions upon millions of people will disagree with you, TCThinner, lighter, narrower bezel, larger screen, iPad apps, Apple support (this matters a lot to some people). I'm sure there are more.
Are these worth $130 to you? They're not to me, but I don't know if I represent the majority, and I can't say someone is wrong for valuing things differently than I do.
Might have looked that way, but in actuality the stock move was immediate on the revelation of iPhone sales tracking at 'only' 15 MM which was a little bit shy of what they hoped.As soon as the price was announced, the stock went south.
