BlackBerry PlayBook or iPad Mini?

by techyknowsbest / November 26, 2012 4:24 AM PST

Hey, my first post! Happy

So, I have a BlackBerry PlayBook now. It's OK, all I really do is watch Youtube videos and occasionally browse the web. As it's xmas soon (1mth), I asked for an iPad Mini. It will be 16GB, like my PlayBook. The reason I fancied the iPad Mini is because it's from Apple (slight fanboii moment), and because it's the same size group that I'm used to. My PlayBook will be sold, but I might be having slight second thoughts, so help me please?

Since you can install a fairly up to date Android that moves you into the mainstream for no cost.

I like the iPad but for a really small thing. The bluetooth is not a standard there so we can't use them.

If you install the Android they offer, go get FireFox Beta and install the Flash support you can find out there. I did that on my Nexus and this is one dangerous PC replacement with a keyboard and mouse. The sites I complained about now work fine.

The Ipad will have more apps

but if you don't use apps there won't be much difference. I myself wouldn't switch over to do the same things.
