Apple iPad Air
As we already expected, the Cupertino based team at Apple debuted their next generation iPad. Seeing that it’s the most powerful, lightest model to date, Apple decided to call the current iteration the iPad Air.
This new iPad weighs in at just 1 pound, and at 7.5 mm thin, it’s 20 percent thinner than last year’s iPad model. Apple did more than just improve the aesthetics though, ramping up performance capabilities with an A7 processor built on a 64-bit architecture. The iPad Air is also equipped with a front-facing HD camera, crystal clear retina display, dual antennas for improved wireless performance, and a M7 motion coprocessor. It’s worth noting that even with all the performance upgrades, Apple managed to keep this thing energy efficient with a battery that last 10 hours on a full charge. There will of course be several versions available when the iPad Air releases next month, with the entry level device retailing for $499. [Purchase]
