Comparing the iPad 3 mini to the Nexus 9

So, how does one compare these 2 devices?  It's actually quite hard without being able to actually play with one.  But the mini 3 is the closest to the Nexus 9 to spec against.

There'll be lots of nebulous-ness in this comparison and there'll also be lots of folks who'll dispute that although it's weaker looking in one area, that the other will be much better...

... but let's dive in anyways. 

On the hardware side here's what we're looking at for these 2 newly released devices:

128GB - $659

Again it's a real hard split between these 2.  Especially when you factor in prices.  The prices for the Canadian Nexus 9 isn't confirmed yet, and it could be higher.  Sure, it's a large tablet, but for the average consumer they're not going to be noticing every detail.  The 9 will be sold in stores at Best Buy / Future Shop 'soon', and then with LTE versions coming out in November via the big Telus and Rogers





So, if you were 'brand agnostic', which do you think looks more appealing?
