Apple has managed to continue remaining at the top of the tablets’ list with its iPad and iPad Mini, even though Google did steal some of its limelight with its bestselling Nexus 7. But can the Nexus 7 remain a popular choice even when Apple unveils its latest iPad 5 and iPad Mini 2 in the near future?
Display: While the Nexus 7 has a brilliant resolution of 1280X800 pixels, the iPad Mini’s 1024X768 pixels could barely compare with it. However, the iPad Mini 2 could possibly change things if it comes with the Retina Display, bumping its resolution all the way to 2048X1536 pixels.
Tech specs: The Nexus 7 is powered by a powerful quad-core 1.2 GHz processor and 1 GB of RAM. We couldn’t really say the same about the iPad Mini, but the iPad Mini 2 could be powered by a brand new Apple A7 processor, which is also expected to be featured in the iPad 5.
Storage: Here’s where the Nexus 7’s popularity could get affected. The iPad 4 already came with 128 GB of internal storage, so we can see the same trend in the iPad 5. But would we get to see it in the iPad Mini 2? The Nexus 7’s 32 GB internal storage seems extremely limited in comparison.
