new Nexus 7 and the future of iPad mini





At last Wednesday’s press conference, Google , where among other things, the company also unveiled an updated Nexus 7, the atmosphere was permeated with the spirit of Apple. In each action, the speakers in each slide on the screen could be seen sending to the previous actions of Apple or an attempt to predict its next steps.

One such attempt was updated tablet Nexus 7. Obviously, working on the second version of the device, the guys were trying to overtake ASUS has not released iPad mini. And I dare say that they succeeded.

But despite the fact that these races always benefit the end user, this race features preclude participation by Apple. With one exception. The new Nexus 7 has received a full HD-display. In a seven-inch display tablet developers could fit almost 2.5 million pixels. Its display resolution is 1920 x 1280 pixels, and it means that the density is so high that the human eye can not distinguish fine dots on the screen at a normal distance. Just like my grandfather bequeathed Jobs.

Other superpowers tablet, such as a series of powerful quad-core processor Snapdragon, 2 gigabytes of RAM is set aside, as the ever-growing characteristics have with you is hard to impress. However, there is one “but” which will make tremble all customers who have stayed with a choice between the new Nexus 7 and the same iPad mini. The price tag of the tablet from ASUS starts with a mark of $ 230. For this amount the buyer receives shestnadtsatigigabaytnuyu version of the tablet with Wi-Fi, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, and other amenities. LTE-only version is provided with 32 gigabytes of memory and will cost $ 349.

The youngest “Minikit” today will cost you $ 329 – a little less top-end Nexus 7 of the second generation. But it will take another 2-3 months and Apple will show us a new version of the iPad mini. With an eye to the same Nexus 7 can confidently say that if Apple really does not go for a price reduction tablet, then equip it with a new display company just is not right. First, the yard is 2013, which at the time of the announcement of iPad mini will go on the last lap before the finish line, and second, if the second version of the iPad mini will not Retina-display, no one will buy – I almost sure. I assume that Apple is well aware of this fact, and outstanding engineers who so often applauded by guests WWDC conferences and other Apple, will make it impossible for us to contact you can enjoy high quality image in a new version of the tablet.

In conclusion, you can use quotation Kastrenakesa Jacob, author of The Verge:

The display made all the Nexus 7.

This is a serious reason for Apple to think about the future of its tablets. If not now, when?
