The iPad Mini is a brand new contender for best tablets 2013. As the name probably indicates, its a mini version of the iPad but also a larger version of the iPod or iPhone. One of the best features that jump out at you is how light weight and thin the new iPad Mini is with its 7.9 inch screen (7 inch tablets will be the best tablets of 2013). Most will be able to hold it in one hand while using the other to touch and scroll. As a result of this new size and weight, not only is it one of the best tablets of 2013, but also a pretty good e-reader. The finish is superb with either matte silver or charcoal aluminum. Both WiFi and LTE options are availabe (a must have for the best tablets 2013). Similar screen resolution to iPad 2 so existing apps should work fine.
CONs: Smaller size will take some getting used to when it comes to for example the on screen keyboard. Limited LTE frequencies. No upgradable memory. You will need to spend more on lightening adaptors. The 16GB versions is over priced when compared to Google Nexus 7 (one of our best tablets 2013) or the Kindle Fire HD.
