I’m thinking of getting a new tablet and need to decide between an Android OS tablet such as the Google Nexus and an iOS one such as the iPad 2/3/Mini.
These are my concerns:
1) I’ll be using it for basic gaming, so a Tegra processor would be preferable
2) I’ll be using it extensively for watching content wirelessly that is streamed off my media streaming server at home
3) No Samsungs. They suck. I’m fine with Asus/Lenovo/LG/Nexus/Sony.
4) Maximum budget is AED 1000-1200
I’ve heard that Apple doesn’t support DLNA but there are applications such as Media:Connect that enable you to do so, while Android devices support apps such as Bubble PNP which work fine on my Kindle Fire currently.
I think the best tablet experience is with an iPad. I own the Mini and love it. But the issue is that with Apple, you pretty much need to be tied to their eco system. If you are Ok with that, then I doubt you’ll find a better tablet (apps and overall experience).
On the specs side, the Nexus 7 is pretty good. You can get the latest 2013 edition of Nexus 7 within your budget
Cheers for that Abbas! I should have added one more clause…I can only purchase it from Axiom because I have an AED 300 voucher of theirs
Axiom has the iPad Mini but every Axiom branch I go to gives me a different answer about their Google Nexus stock. The other thing that bothers me is resale. I’m struggling to sell my Kindle Fire, whereas an iPad Mini can be sold much more easily after a year or two.
I blame the retarded retailers who sell crappy Android tablets for AED 199 and confuse customers further. At the end of the day, a n00b is looking for an Android tablet with a camera for skype and doesn’t care about the rest of the features.
Yeah, with the resale value, you’ll be hard pressed to find anything better than an Apple product. The Kindle on the other hand sells really poorly here because of the lack of an official version/eco system.
If your budget is 1200, you could possibly buy it from JadoPado and then put your Axiom certificate on dubizzle to sell it for a little under 300 (say 250) to get some cash back?
