If you read a lot of magazines from the Newsstand, my suggestion is to wait for the next generation iPad mini or at least wait for Apple to optimize it for this device because it’s fairly bad. Bad to the point where some articles are unreadable or VERY difficult to read. The text is blurry and you have to make some effort to make out the words.
Websites, PDFs, emails and text messages aren’t as horrible. They’re actually quite acceptable, and I had no problems doing some actual work such as writing part of this review on the iPad mini using the WriteRoom app. The same is true of Facebook,Haipai I9377 Twitter, and reading news from Flipboard.
