iPad air is the revamped fifth generation iPad accounting for 41% of the total iPads sold, with the iPad with Retina Display making up 13% of the sales.
The most attractive aspect of the new tablet from Apple is that it is worthy of its name, weighing just about a pound. Apple has managed to produce a product that is not only better than its predecessors but also smaller, lighter and more powerful. The new iPad Air runs much faster, so that you can make use of apps hitherto not possible on tablets. Of course, as expected, the iPad Air price is quite highfor the versions, the iPad Air and the iPad mini with Retina display, both available as Wi Fi models as well as those with cellular connectivity.
Design and Look
The display has not changed much, with a 2048 x 1536 p and a density 264 p, which is known as a Retina display. All the usual ports re present, with two microphones for improved audio in videos and FaceTime. The camera is a 5 mp rear facing one and an upgraded front facing one.
Even the battery is smaller, though of course having lesser capacity than before. But, the battery life is almost the same due to the A7 processor offering better power efficiency. Apple has promised 10 hours of web surfing with Wi Fi or watching videos, listening to music. If you are using cellular data network, you can get about 9 hours of web surfing on the device.
If you’re looking for a tablet that you can hold single handedly for hours while reading or working, this tablet is definitely not for you. The width of iPad Air has decreased and it is slim and light, but not as comfortable as the iPad mini, especially for reading purposes for a long stretch of time. The screen is big and gorgeous for reading.
Speed – The Fastest
Powered by A7 processor, it is the fastest tablet ever, being even faster than the iPhone 5. This could be due to the bigger batter as well as capability to dissipate heat faster. The power of this tablet is amazing and launches apps really fast. You can play games that are graphic heavy without any problem, as this tablet handles it with aplomb, but truly there aren’t any apps out there that can truly take advantage of this kind of processing power.
Another striking feature is that it makes use of the advanced Apple A7 chipset and a dual core processor. The M7 is another co processor that effectively reduces the load on its main CPU, as it is capable of independently handling tasks related to motions.
Price Varies with Capacity
The iPad Air price is already listed in Apple’s website and Apple loyalists are queuing up to get hold of the device. All the variants of iPadAir are now available, being released in November 2013 in the US, and now available in various other countries as well. The tablet marks the beginning of a major design change by Apple, with a much thinner design and a smaller screen. The iPad Air price will depend on the storage variants, the 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB. There are tablets with only Wi Fi as well as those with Wi Fi and 4G, with the latter variant being more expensive. It is available in both black and white.
In short, if you are looking for the most efficient and powerful tablet in the market today, go get the iPad Air. The design is stunning and it has a great suite of apps. The iPad Air is as close to perfection as you can get in today’s market. And the iPad Air price is also one of the greatest aspects of this range, with the cost of its 16GB Wi Fi model the same as the price of rivals, though the price increases with the capacity.
