Apple has unveiled the widely predicted iPad mini, wading into an increasingly crowded compact tablet market.
With Google and Asus collaborating on the Nexus 7, Amazon throwing its weight behind the Kindle Fire HD, and both the Nook and Kobo brands hoping to get a bit more UK recognition, we take a look at how the specifications compare.

£150 difference between the 32GB Kindle HD & equivalent ipad mini!
You gotta really be a fanboy to justify paying that much more.

There appears to be a bit of confusion with the iPad specs, is LTE included at all the price points quoted, or even any of them?

Where is GPS in the Nexus 7 specs?

How about showing which ones have an SD slot

iPad Mini supposedly does not have GPS.

GSP only on 3G iPad mini

How about the ability to swap batteries, or charge from a standard USB connection?
By stefani on 25 Oct 2012
There is no facility for swapping batteries on the Nexus 7 or iPad Mini and I'm pretty sure it's the same for the Kindle Fire HD?
The Kindle Fire HD doesn't even come with a charger in the box. You have to pay extra and buy that separately.

That's because the Kindle Fire HD can charge with a bog standard micro-usb cable and wall plug. The same plug and cable that everything non-Apple uses now (mandated by EU law). If you're the odd one out who doesn't actually own one, or just want a spare, they cost £2 on Amazon. No silly microchipped £30 "Lightning" wires here, please.
