The iPad mini 2 design is a little bit thinner and extremely lighter than Google Nexus 9, despite of the fact that it was released just 12 months before.

The iPad mini 2 has a bit better CPU than Google Nexus 9, because although it has 1 GB lesser RAM, and they both have a Dual-Core processor and a 64 bits processor, the iPad mini 2 also counts with an extra graphics co-processor. The Apple iPad mini 2 has a slightly better looking screen than Google Nexus 9, because although it has a little bit smaller display, and they both have exactly the same resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels, the Apple iPad mini 2 also counts with a little bit better amount of pixels in each inch of screen.

The Google Nexus 9 counts with a lot bigger memory for games and applications than iPad mini 2, because it has 16 GB more internal memory.

IPad mini 2 takes a bit better pictures and videos than Google Nexus 9, although it has a lot less mega-pixels camera in the back and a lower video quality, they both have a F2.4 diafragm aperture.

Although iPad mini 2 is a better device, it costs a little more than Google Nexus 9, and it doesn't have such a good price and quality relation as Google Nexus 9. So if you want that extra specs and features, you can buy the iPad mini 2, otherwise you can save some dollars and get the Google Nexus 9, giving up a couple specs and features.
