Since I am in the market for a tablet computer after I sold off my Kindle Fire I have been following the product offerings. I have shortlisted Amazon Kindle and Nook HD versions and was really hoping that Apple will introduce something that will make sense for most Americans.
I must say that I am beyond disappointed by Apple’s pricing strategy. Indeed, the iPad mini is a cool tablet and according the company, for all practical purposes, is an iPad, but if I wanted an iPad that is what I will buy. By not being interested in a product that seems to become obsolete each year, I have been searching for a product that costs so little that if I pass it on to a kid or if I just junk it after a year, I would not feel so bad.
With two hundred bucks, it is easy to move on but when prices reach over $329, I might just buy a regular iPad and try to hang on to it for two years. Definitely, I am not buying it and would seriously consider picking one from Kindle HD, Google Nexus, and Nook.
