While Apple seemed to take a stroll, relaxing after releasing iPad Mini. Some rumors have it that they are planning to release a mini follow up for the iPhone 5. But still, what Google did was definitely a move that will leave Apple slightly behind its back (at least for the mini retina enhanced tablet division) for a while; Google launches an unexpected backdoor release of its second generation follow up to its Nexus 7.
The Nexus 7 was announced last Wednesday and is power packed with features that would make Apple need to catch up.
First and foremost is the size, introducing a more handy size of just 7.02 inches, Google wins this round against Apple’s 7.90 inches. Next factor is the Resolution and Pixel Density, Google seems to be the winner again for this round with a whopping 1920×1200 323 pixels per inch offer, compared to Apple’s 1024×768 163 pixels per inch. It seems that for the display factor of both tablets, Google really has a great advantage than Apple.
Moving on to the internal features, Google boasts a Quadcore qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, 1.5 Gigahertz for its processor, gaining an undeniable lead from Apple’s Dual Core A5 processor. Google has definitely done it this time; Apple would really need to catch up if they don’t want to be left behind by Google.
But of course Apple won’t go down that easily; there are still some features that Google didn’t manage to outwit. One is the battery life, still proving its best in terms of battery life, iPad Mini can last up to 10 hours, while Nexus can only last up to 9. Both tablets are at a tie in terms of the camera specifications, both are equipped with 1.2 mega pixels front camera and a 5 mega pixel main one. Apple also slightly outdoes Google regarding the Storage space availability, while both are made available at 16GB and 32GB, Apple has its signature 64GB available for iPad Mini. Apple proves to be a tough enemy for this round. No matter how small the difference is, it just goes to show that Apple is still putting up a fight.
Last is the price, Google’s 16GB is $100 cheaper than Apple’s, while the 32GB is cheaper by a great deal of $160.
Looking at all the factors, Google may really have caught Apple behind its back this time. Now Apple has to come up with their counterattack.
