It's cheap, because of the inferior build quality and materials.
You are also getting fooled by some of the paper specs, which is a common mistake that some people are guilty of.
The iPad Mini has a superior display to both the Nexus 7 and the Kindle Fire.
Apple can make up some points by simply having higher image quality and more accurate colors, which is an area of concern with the Nexus 7 and Kindle. Both tend to look a little washed out, and the Nexus 7 suffers from some image ghosting.
Also, a 4:3 display is superior to a 16:9 display on a tablet for most uses. That is another win for the iPad Mini. 16:9 tablets in portrait are a joke. Also, Android requires higher resources to run, because of it's inferior OS.
