    Just wondering what everyone is using in terms of protection, apps, and media consumption for their minis. Also what capacity & color did you go with?

    (White iPad Mini 32GB wifi, with Red Smart Cover)

    Moving this out of the Poll section and have it placed in the iPad Mini section where you'll get better attention.

    Got my mini a couple days ago... I use Evernote, nook app, kindle, YouTube and may install flipboard. 16GB/White... Using a slip case from PointMobl. It's a universal 8" case in black with an extra pocket for the charger. The case is a little loose around the mini but it's good protection for the mini in my backpack.

    I have the 16 gb wi-fi only in black. Had I known how much I would love it I would have went with the 32 gb. Anyway, I use a leather invellop case. I like it a lot. I have one in black, red, and blue. I basically use my mini when I'm out of the house. It fits easy in my purse so I use it to read or play my games or check my email while on the go.

    Mostly to browse the web. I spend a lot of time just reading articles and keeping up on the latest tech stories so having a comfortable device to hold is important to me... The iPad 2 is nice but it gets heavy after a while of reading. The mini is perfect in that respect. I also use the Nexus 7 but I figured the mini has a larger screen and still is comfortable in the hand so why not try it out. Got some $$ for Christmas so I picked up a mini. Also been reading nook books on it a little and downloaded YouTube app and watched some videos just to test it out. So far everything has worked flawlessly. :)

    How do you like the mini compared to the nexus 7? And I agree about the iPad 2/3/4 they tend to get cumbersome after a while, which is why I went to a mini & I'm loving it, great 1 handed device for the latest tech articles as I myself use it for.

    Well... I love my N7, not gonna lie. It has been my go to device since September when I got it. But the mini has a larger screen, better battery life, thinner, more apps and better build quality. I use my N7 for a lot of things- calendar, email, ebooks, web, YouTube, g+, Facebook, twitter, magazines, currents, movies and games. But I think most if not all of those things can be done on the mini. I try to use my devices for as many different tasks as possible to get the most out of them and to be well rounded. But in the coming weeks and months I plan to put the mini to the test. I will be using it for email as well as my N7 plus ebooks, movies, games, and so on... But especially web. I consider myself an Internet addict. So we'll see if the mini can stand up to the N7 in the next few months. I'm finding it fun to find sites that have tablet versions like ExtremeTech and CultofMac and putting their icons on the home screen for easy access on the mini. Not sure if you can do that on the N7 even though there is a bookmark widget. Using those tablet optimized sites is a lot of fun on the mini. Time will tell which device I favor though. Too soon to make a final judgement yet.

    I had an iPad 2 but because of the weight & size I just couldn't take it everywhere so I sold it and bought an N7. Very nice device, but I missed some of my apps & some other things from my iPad. The main app I used on my iPad was the Dish Network app so that I could watch stuff from my DVR while I was away. The Dish Network app was very glitchy on the N7. So, I finally decided to get an iPad Mini for myself for Christmas. Well, I can say I haven't put it down much since I got it. I absolutely love it. If you're an Android fan then you'll love the N7. It really is a nice device. I personally prefer the iPad Mini. The screen size is better & I just prefer iOS.

    The iPad Mini can in fact handle all of the task you mentioned that you use the N7 for. I myself prefer iOS, I do not like the fragmentation present in androids OS. Build quality and apps are second to none and the ecosystem is also another reason to enjoy apple. Together my entire network is seamless from the time capsule down to iOS devices and Mac OS.
