With the debut of Apple's iPad Mini, we have to admit that iPad mini does stand out in comparison with its latest rival mini-tablets: Despite having a larger screen than those of its nearest rivals like Google's Nexus 7 and Amazon's Kindle Fire HD, the new iPad mini is lighter and about half as thick as either one. Better yet, despite its lighter weight, it feels much more solid.

The only fly in the ointment for the iPad mini compared with its main seven-inch rivals is the restricted video and audio format compatibility with iPad mini:

  • iPad mini only supports to play audio files which are in AAC, MP3, Apple Lossless, AIFF, and WAV. If you try to play any other audio formats like FLAC, OGG, WMA, QCP, APE, AMR, RA, SHN, MPC, VOC and etc, iPad mini will refuse to import and play.
  • iPad mini only recognizes video files which are in MP4, M4V and MOV. If you try to import and play movies on iPad mini in the following video formats like AVI, MKV, WMV, WTV, FLV, F4V, SWF, MPG, VOB, MXF, ASF, RMVB, WebM, BIK, MVI, AVCHD and etc, it will end in fail.
  • Even iPad mini supported video or audio format like MP4, MOV, M4V still cannot be copied to the iPad mini sometimes because of the difference in resolution, bit rate, aspect ratio, and size audio codec with the requested specifications of iPad mini.
