  • Nook has twice the RAM
  • Nook has 25% more surface area
  • Nook has 312% more pixels
  • Nook has 57% more pixels per inch
  • Nook has SD expansion
  • Nook comes at 81% of the cost of the mini
I think a Nook HD comparison is more relevant, and makes your point equally well. Put another way, if someone shipped an Android tablet with iPad mini's specs, they might be able to ask $160 for it.
