Internet Apps

One of the most notable things that the iPad mini has brought to the table(t) that gives it a competitive advantage is the fact that the apps available to it are not merely re-scaled phone apps, but actual tablet apps that make the most out of the screen. Additionally, Apple does run probably the best app market out there, with a huge range of very well-polished apps that get a lot of attention form developers, meaning that you should be well-taken care of if media consumption is your aim.

While apps boringly live on the home screen, the store is quite the sight.

Other Internet Features

The Apple iPad mini has many of the same home network sharing features of the fully-sized iPad, which is great: you can push media content to your TV via the AppleTV box that's available for separate purchase, and you can stream media from your computer to your tablet via WiFi and home sharing through iTunes. It may not be the crazy-complicated or advanced apps of Android, but it works quite well without messing with too much.
