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.

Take away….

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.

    I read somewhere or other that you now live in a broccoli forest.

    Yes. He upgraded after seeing the new maps aren’t the train wreck they once were, a side-effect of our test-trip.
