Where do you get your data?

While both small tablets feature familiar rectangles, the new Nexus 7 is nice and slim. Measuring 7.9 x 4.5 x 0.34 inches, the width is easier to hold with one hand than the iPad mini’s 7.9 x 5.3 x 0.28 inches. On the other hand, Apple squeezed a larger 7.9-inch screen into a thinner chassis. The front of the Nexus 7 has a lot of wasted space above and below the screen

While Apple’s 7.9-inch tablet sports a relatively low 1024 x 768-pixel resolution, Google’s 7-inch slate packs in a lot more pixels with its 1920 x 1200 display.
Apple iPad Mini vs. Google Nexus 7: What's the Best Small Tablet?

According to that the iPad mini is 4/5ths of an inch WIDER which would be 20 mm. That would mean it would not fit into even more of my front pants pockets.

Just found a different site that corroborates you.
iPad is 200 mm x 134.7 mm
Nexus is 200 mm x 114 mm

Well believe it or not the Mini does fit in a front pants pocket. Now tried on 3 different pairs of pants. And I am not a large man. But certainly the Nexus would fit better. Still... just to damn big for me to want to put it in my pocket for any length of time.

Tablets Compared: Why You Shouldn’t Spend Money on Cheap Chinese Android Imports

Quote:
Many of the tablets sold in Asia, particularly China and Southeast Asia, suffer from serious design and quality-control issues. On the other hand, some China-designed tablets actually compare quite well with well-known manufacturers. For example, the popular Hyundai (not Hyundai of Korea) T7 tablet pound-per-pound, beats the first generation Nexus 7 in specifications and in price. However, do the best tablets from China compare to the latest tablet, such as the 2013 Nexus 7 in terms of value?


Depending on the manufacturer, Chinese-designed and manufactured tablets vary wildly in quality. Some manufacturers, such as Pipo and Ramos, maintain higher standards for both build quality and performance. Others, such as Ainol and off-brand manufacturers, while popular, do not possess a reputation for reliability or quality.


However, the hardware isn’t the primary failing of most Chinese tablets – it’s the firmware and software that fall short.

I could be wrong, but most tables sold in the US are made in China. Some are cheap, while others aren't, however.

NO tablet trumps any other one these two features. A Nexus or an iPad will have access to about 95% of the same books.
Just pull the trigger already. No one needs a 10 page thread to buy a tablet.
