One of the things you are paying for when buying an iPad is a higher quality touch experience with faster response times. Agawi has published their touchscreen latency analysis findings and the iPad Mini has landed on top.
The test was performed using a system called Touchscope and all tablets are prepared using the same software and methodology. The results (shown above) put the iPad Mini ahead of the pack but not wildly ahead of the 2nd through 4th places. The speeds are measured in milliseconds and the results are based on a minimum of 50 tests.
