Look at this size and pixel comparison between the iPad Mini and its competitors. It clearly shows that its screen real estate is inferior to the Nexus 7, Kindle Fire HD and Nook HD.
The screen may have a bigger physical size, but the lower pixel counts means you will see less stuff on the screen and it will not be as sharp as the Kindle Fire HD, the Nexus 7 and the Nook HD, which is the densest screen of them all. The fewer pixels per inch, the more pixelized the screen looks. No retina effect here.
Obviously, Apple's claims about having more web browsing space than the competition are false; things will appear bigger, but it's the same amount of stuff. And obviously, this thing looks more and more clearly overpriced by the day. It's ok, though, there will still be plenty of drones buying it. [Technewsdaily via BGR]
