The new flagship tablet from Apple has been dubbed the iPad Air. It is capable of taking 5 megapixel shots with 1080p HD footage with a new front-facing FaceTime camera that has larger pixels for better quality, along with the new 64-bit Apple A7 processor for tasks, dual microphones, a 9.7-inch 2048 x 1536 Retina display, and the M7 motion processor.
iOS 7-laden, the iPad Air weighs only a pound (down from 1.4 last year) and is 7.5mm thick. WiFi has better data transfer speeds thanks to MMO optimization, but the new iPad AIr doesn’t have the next-gen standard of WiFi — that is, 802.11ac.
Per Apple’s tradition with its best tablets, the new iPad Air sports 10 hour battery life, comes in space grey/black or silver/white, and is priced at $499 on November 1st, with a cellular version starting at $629.
