    I wanted to make a comparison spreadsheet because I'm always wondering about the differences in all the devices. You can easily find it all online but not in one easy to read location. So I just spent the last 15 minutes making this spreadsheet.

    Would you guys be so kind as to proof read it and check it for errors?
    Or if there is another column of specs you'd like added just ask and I'll be happy to add it. I simply picked some of the specs that I think are important.

    Thanks

    Looks good. I think your weights are for the 3G/4G/LTE versions.

    Also, what does back light mean?

    Yes, I wanted to keep it simple as possible so I used the heaviest weights I could find.

    By back light I mean the camera flash. Should I change the name?

    I would, but its your sheet. :)

    I don't think the mini has a flash...and I'm sure the iPad 3 doesn't, and I thought the iPad 4 didn't, too.

    I think so. All iOS device screens are backlit, which can cause confusion.

    I don't see any flash on my iPad 4 camera app.

    I agree, perhaps change "back light" to "camera flash".

    Apple site lists a spec under camera called "Backside illumination."
    I took this to mean camera flash, but yes you're right, the mini doesn't have a flash. Probably the iPad4 doesn't either.
    I'll fix that or delete that column.
    What do they mean by Backside illumination? They also say that the iPad2 doesn't have it...

    That's right, there is no flash on the iPad 4 or any other iPad.

    I found the explanation of backside illumination.
