If he's not good with technology the iPad is easily the better decision. If he has an iPhone 4S he will know how to use the iPad. Part of the reason why Apple is so successful is because of the simplicity of their electronics.
It's hard to say which would be better for him. My girlfriend liked the Mini and she wanted a Kindle Fire HD because she didn't think I'd get her an iPad. The Kindle is about the size of the iPad Mini. However I don't think I'd get my mom an iPad Mini because the bigger screen probably suits her better.
