The estimated reading time for this post is 153 seconds
With the release of the iPad mini, there’s lots of talk whether there’s room on the market for a mid-sized Apple device when 7-inch tablets, such as the Kindle Fire and the Google Android Nexus 7, already exist. Apple fanboys — and girls — have been missing out on the benefits of having a smaller device for their gaming needs, while everyone else is enjoying the freedom that comes with a smaller tablet.
Compared to the 10-inch iPad, the 7-inch tablets may not seem like they’d be a whole lot different, or that anyone would have a need for them, but 3 inches is a huge difference when talking about such little proportions.
Here are four of the benefits of using the smaller, non-Apple tablets:
A larger screen, compared to a mobile phone, allows for better, clearer graphics. When playing games online, especially casino-style games where real money is on the line, which can be found at sites like Top10bestonline-casinos, it’s important to be able to see every aspect in detail. Chris Shen at Pocket Gamer says that when played on a table, the popular Asian card-battle games have a realistic feel and provide a rich visual experience. Additionally, more mobile-gaming companies are joining the race to provide an excellent experience for on-the-go gamers.
It’s Extremely Light and Portable
Due to it’s petite size and light weight, you’ll probably find yourself using a tablet more than an phone for gaming. It’s not a problem to hold it for long periods of time as you read ebooks, magazines or play the latest games. Its portability allows you to toss it in your bag or briefcase and read it on your
morning commute. You can even hold it with one hand, with your latte in the other, as you play catch-up on the news. It’s also easy to carry around the house: Take it in the kitchen to try out a new recipe; learn new workout moves while exercising in the living room; play games during commercial breaks in the evening.
Gamers are in need of a mid-sized device that’s portable yet usable for a variety of activities such as Web browsing and reading, unlike a game console that’s pricey and has one purpose.
