Head-To-Head: Google Nexus 7 Vs. Apple iPad Mini


The iPad Mini's 1,024-x-768 resolution (163 ppi) display is an LED-backlit multitouch LCD that measures 7.9 inches diagonally. Its IPS panel offers an enormous range of colors and a super-wide viewing angle. The glass is coated with an oleophobic substance that resists fingerprints. The iPad Mini offers quite a nice looking display, but it's nowhere close to HD. Nexus 7 on the other hand is not only close to HD, it exceeds it. Google's 7-inch LCD impressively pumps out 1,920-x-1,200 pixels, which calculates to 323 ppi. It too employs IPS technology with its impressive array of colors and viewing angles. And, it's protected with Gorilla Glass. But, according to a piece on Android Origin, the Gorilla Glass is not the latest version 3 -- it's Corning's original Gorilla Glass 1.
