Apple launches the new iPad Air
Alongside the new iPad Mini with Retina display, Apple also introduced the latest generation of their 9.7-inch slate which is surprisingly called the iPad Air.
Apart from the new naming, Apple has also made a few adjustments on the iPad Air, making it thinner (7.5mm vs 9.4mm) and marginally lighter (1lb vs 1.4lb) than the 4th Generation iPad.
The company also gave their new flagship tablet a performance boost by equipping it with their latest chipset which includes the 64-bit A7 processor, a quad-core GPU, as well as the accompanying M7 processor.
Apple iPad Air specs:
9.7-inch IPS LCD Retina Display, 2048×1536 pixels @ 264ppi
Apple A7 64-bit chip dual-core processor
PowerVR SGX544MP4 GPU
Apple M7 Motion processor
5MP iSight rear camera
1080p full HD video recording
1.3MP front-facing FaceTime camera
WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
The base model (16Gb, Wi-Fi only) of the Apple iPad Air has a price tag of USD499 and will be sold alongside the iPad 2 which is priced at USD399.
