A look at Apple’s iPad mini specs page reveals a disparity between the location features on the Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi plus cellular models.
While the cellular iPad mini features GPS to track its location the WiFi only model lacks any GPS capability, unless you count the built-in compass app. Apple was more than happy to compare the iPad mini to competitors like Google’s Nexus 7 at Tuesday’s announcement event, saying that the 7.9-inch display gave it more screen real estate than its Android competitor. However, the Nexus 7, along with other competing tablets in the 7-inch range like Samsung’s Galaxy Tab 2, do enjoy built-in GPS in the Wi-Fi models.
Nexus 7 charting a course to compete
It’s nothing new for Apple to leave out GPS on its Wi-Fi only devices. Past iPad models, including the new iPad 4‘s Wi-Fi model, suffered from the same limitation. The feature is arguably more important with the shift to a smaller tablet like the iPad mini though, which is easier to bring along in the car and potentially use as a GPS device.
Of course the cellular iPad mini, which also adds LTE support, still includes built-in GPS.
However, the feature may come into consideration when comparing the $ 249 (UKŁ199,AU$ 299) 16GB Wi-Fi Nexus 7 against the $ 329 (UKŁ269,AU$ 369) 16GB WiFi iPad mini this holiday season.
