I have been reading through the threads on "What tablet?" and a lot of people have either an iPad Mini or similar-sized tablet that they travel with. I am interested in getting one to either replace or complement my netbook for our next trip but am unsure whether it will be big enough for comfortably reading my Lonely Planet e-books.
I have a Sony e-reader that is OK for the text part of the books but is too small to display the maps and graphics so I want something that is a lot better for this purpose. Does anybody have Lonely Planet e-books on their iPad Mini or similar sized tablet and if so, are you able to view the maps well?
Same goes for Google Maps or "Maps" on the iPad - are they sufficiently clear enough to read whilst navigating around a city or town? I have had a play instore to compare a standard-sized iPad with an iPad Mini and the former's size is definitely better when using Maps but is the smaller screen not that great a disadvantage "in the field", so to speak?
