For reading, there are plenty of preferences (those who like 4:3, those who like 16:10, those who couldn't care less), but for movies, the mini is below the competition. It can't display 720p movies, and the aspect ratio means that you have big black bars for 16:9 content, and humongous bars for 21:9 content. A 16:10 tablet is better suited for video, unless you're into 80s shows.
