Apple Tablets Have Excellent Reviews

The Apple iPad Mini is 4G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other tablet computers of a comparable type and age to the iPad Mini are not 4G compatible.

Tablets which are 4G compatible that might also be worth considering include the Apple iPad Mini ($299.97).
The Apple iPad Mini is 3G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other tablets of this age and spec are not 3G compatible.
There are a number of other 3G compatible tablet computers currently available which you might want to look at including the Apple iPad (2nd gen) which is cheaper.

A 720p video recording mode is the worst video recording mode across comparable types of tablet computer.
Quite High Second Camera Resolution

3 Reasons Against

We compared this tablet computer to all the other 16GB internal storage capacity tablets and we think cheaper tablets such as the Apple iPad (2nd gen) is also worth considering.
If this tablet computer internal storage capacity is not large enough for you then you might also want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (32GB and higher rated).
