Next up is a lot of fuss about TRUE table applications vs mobile apps. On the Nexus, Yelp is a scaled up mobile app not a true tablet app. Phil’s really pushing the difference between experiences here with the 2 tables.

Theres aren’t just scaled up mobile apps, these are full apps that take full advantage of teh iPad mini.

If you took the bigger iPad and reduced it all you'd be aware of is what is missing. Apple took the time to do something with the creation of and not the reduction of the mini. The borers are smaller and the uni body process has been further developed. New smart cover for the ipad mini, effective it’s wrapping the iPad mini in a single color material
