Store One: Apple Store. Test item: iPad Mini.
Niiiiice. Really nice.
Store Two: Microsoft. Test item: Surface.
A bit slow, nice screen. Kinda strange (for a Mac-person).
Store Three: Office Depot. Test item: Nexus 7.
Really slow (sales-dude said the system was overloaded—not a good sign); never loaded photos from this blog, just text. Screen fine. Text strange (as in different fonts) but readable. Map cacheing isn’t quite what we expected.
I now know what it’s like to hold the Mini—I’d hold it from the side and use one hand by instinct, but that’s not the most efficient way; take a lesson: learn the two-handed cradle that’s best for phone-typing.
