Apple introduces iPad Air: lightest full size tablet in the world
iPad 5 gets a redesign and new name: iPad Air.
iPad air features:
- New design
- Thinner (7.5mm vs old 9.4mm)
- Thinner bezel
- Lighter (1 pound vs old 1.4 pound)
- 64-bit A7 chip (same as iPhone 5s)
- M7 motion processor
- CUP and graphics both 2x of previous generation
- 1080p HD video
- Front FaceTime HD camera
- 10 hour battery
iPad Air colors:
- Silver and white front
- Space gray and black front
iPad Air will maintain the new price as the most recent iPad,
- $499 for 16GB Wifi version
- $629 for 16GB Cellular version
Availability date of iPad Air is November 1.
Apple will continue to sell the 2.5-year-old non-retina display iPad 2 at $399. If you are in the market to get a cheap full sized iPad, ObamaPacman recommend that you get Apple refurb instead, since the 4th generation refurb Retina iPad starts at $379 right now. But for companies with Apple 30 pin dock connector base system and have no plan to upgrade to Lightening cable ones, iPad 2 might be a viable option.
Mark my words, next year, full size Android tablets will copy the thin bezels of the iPad Air.
