At the same time, other tablet market also will tend to begin Mini, most of which equipment began to select 7 inch design. At present, Samsung has in the past two years, introduced a variety of operating system based on Android7inch flat panel computer. But when Amazon launched 7inch Kindle Fire tablet computer, users began to focus their attention to the7 inch flat panel device. A strategy is very clear, and the more typical: $200, to the great benefit behavior weakened the strength of competitors, and the integration of books, television programs, including movies, music and a lot of Amazon online services, so that users of Kindle Fire dependence.

Google in June 27th of this year’s I/O developer conference also released a7 inch Nexus 7 flat computer, and uses the same idea of integration with the Kindle Fire and the, in Nexus 7 plate device integrated Google Play digital content services, and use a higher screen resolution solutions and high-end processors, but took the similar price strategy to Kindle Fire — $250, to be directed against Kindle Fire.

Taking into account the Microsoft and Barnes & Noble ( Barnes & Noble ) and cooperative relations, does not exclude the possible future of7 inch Nook brand plate and electronic equipment.

However, according to the Windows Phone8 layouts, Microsoft current tend to small size Windows Phone 8 device, rather than the Mini tablet computer.
