Google Nexus 9 vs Apple iPad Mini 3

We’ve spent some time recently looking at the Nexus 7, Nexus 9, iPad Air 2 and the iPad Mini 3. As we’ve been putting these tablets side-by-side to help you determine which is best for your computing needs, it is time we pit the 8-inch iPad Mini 3 against Google’s 9-inch Nexus 9.

Apple iPad Mini 3 vs Google Nexus 7 (2013): pocket-sized tablet shootout

There is a certain amount of mobility lost in attempting to carry around many of today’s best tablets. Whether out of the Android or iOS camp, a 10-inch or larger mobile device is just not very, well, mobile.

5 Best iPad speaker docks

Although the audio capabilities of modern tablets have come a long way, offering more than adequate sound for a round of your favorite game or a quick video chat with a friend, they are still a little weak when it comes to music. Sure, there are tablets with front facing stereo speakers, like the Nexus 9 – equipped with HTC’s BoomSound technology – and the Sony Z3 Tablet Compact, but then there are tablets like the iPad, that have speakers situated on the bottom edge of the device, or worse, pointing straight out the back.

Tablets are the new handheld game systems, beating Vita and 3DS

Which would you rather do, play Candy Crush on your iPad or Mario Kart 8 on your 3DS? If you said Candy Crush, you aren’t alone. Gaming apps on iOS and Android are increasing in popularity as sales for handheld gaming systems have been suffering a steady decline. In the 4th Quarter of 2014 handhelds may have seen a deathblow. This could mean that tablets are the new handheld game systems, at least in the minds of mobile device owners.

You would expect that more people would be interested in buying handheld gaming systems September through December. That is when holiday sales often boost numbers and help gaming companies beat sales records. When it comes to gaming [...]
