Notable feature in two of these devices is their display resolution. The smaller 8-inch tablet beats all its competitors by sporting a 1600 X 1200 screen resolution providing a pixel density of 250 ppi. Although the 4:3 aspect ratio may prompt many to compare it with Apple’s iPad Mini the iProduct with a disappointing pixel density of 163 ppi is nowhere near Slate 8 Pro.
