Well, in fact the Celullar version of Ipad Mini has a better GPS than Nexus 7. But still, comparing Wifi version of Ipad Mini and Nexus7, Nexus7 wins. We will see on the 29th October if the Celullar version of Nexus7 can keep up with the competition
And the questions is:
On what 7″ tablet I don’t have a full GPS?
This post is inspired by a question posted by the multi system GPS app Copilot. As a Nexus 7 (proud even now) owner, I didn’t imagine even for a second that the new Ipad Mini doesn’t have at this moment a full GPS sensor. Amazed being, I looked at the 9.7″ Ipad specs only to find out that there is none there either.
What a hell?? Has anyone from Apple traveled lately outside their city? Haven’t they seen tons of tourists using their Ipads taking pictures? A full GPS sensor is a must for any tablet because it just makes a tablet a full XXI century travel guide.
Yes, the app ecosystem on Android is a disaster* with no known travel brands having city guides, but that doesn’t mean that Apple has even the slightest bit of logic in comparing on stage the Nexus7 with the Ipad Mini. At least on Nexus 7 are a few excellent GPS apps that make travelling more fun.
If Ipad Mini is good due to the ecosystem is because of the developers. And developers for some specific apps that feel crippled on iOS can quickly switch sides if there is profit to have.
