iPad Air (2013) Review

 

Apple single-handedly created what we know to be the tablet category. Before the iPhone was even a darling of the world, Steve Jobs had a vision to create a tablet computer. Of course, as we all know now, Jobs decided to put what would eventually...

Review Apple iPad Air Tablet

 

Love is in the air. The fifth generation of Apple's big seller is now available for purchase. Finally, the California-based company unveils a thinner device -- and at a height of a mere 7.5 mm (~0.3 inches), it has certainly earned the name "Air". The...

which are unfortunately poorly positioned; High surface temperatures under load; No current data transfer standards; No Flash support

Among others, the Apple iPad Air's competitors are the Microsoft Surface 2, Google Nexus 10, Sony Xperia Tablet Z and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1.

Can you be productive with a tablet? You betcha, provided you buy the right one.

Ten hours of battery life ; Twice as fast as fourth-generation iPad ; Light and thin

Still too big for long-term one-handed use ; No Touch ID

Apple iPad Air vs. Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014: Center of gravity

 

With the smartphone market driven towards equilibrium, tablets will be the new battleground. The Apple iPad Air and the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 2014 emerge as the archrivals in the 10-inch category, marching towards their inevitable clash.

Apple iPad Air review: Thin, light and fast, but expensive

 

Apple's large-format tablet is thinner, lighter and faster than ever, and delivers good battery life. We'd like to see the biometric home button and a wi-fi upgrade as soon as possible, but it's still a high-quality, if premium-priced, device.

Thin and light ; Classy design ; Fast 64-bit A7/M7 platform ; Excellent LTE frequency band support ; Good battery life

No Touch ID ; No 802.11ac wi-fi or NFC ; Expensive, especially when accessorised for maximum business productivity

Manageability, security and support are a few of the reasons why BlackBerry® Enterprise Service 10 is such a powerful Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) solution. Check out this paper to learn more.

Apple iPad Air review: Sun and heir

 

It's been tempting lately to conclude that Apple doesn't have it anymore, and tablets in particular is where Cupertino does need to silence the prophets of doom and gloom after an iPad 4 that was more like a 3.1 and a mini that should've had a retina...

9.7" LED-backlit IPS LCD touchscreen, 1536 x 2048 pixels, ~ 264 ppi; scratch-resistant, oleophobic coating ; Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n connectivity with MIMO dual antennas ; LTE connectivity (data only) ; GPS with A-GPS and GLONASS support (for the Cellular...

Non expandable memory ; Price of storage climbs steeply, and storage is largely overpriced ; Tied into iTunes for uploading most of the content ; iOS 7 could've made better use of the bigger screen ; No standard USB port ; No GPS receiver in the...

iPad Air review: The best tablet gets better

 

It's lighter, thinner, and twice as fast as the previous full-size iPad. What's not to like?

Air Worthy

 

Apple first introduced the “Air” branding scheme in conjunction with its ultra-slim and portable MacBook line back in 2008. The term was meant to connote a laptop that wasn't just lighter, but also uber thin, and able to achieve epic battery life. Now...

Incredibly lightweight with a super-slim, redesigned form factor. A7 chip, in addition to helping provide an impressive 10-plus hours of battery life, offers superb overall performance whether you’re surfing the web or streaming media. 9.7-inch, 2048 x...

No TouchID, just a regular old home button. Despite upgrading to stereo speakers — audio separation remains poor. 5-megapixel rear-facing shooter could use an update

Let's murder a metaphor. In June of 2010, two months after Apple had shipped the first iPad, Steve Jobs sat on stage with Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher at the D8 conference and compared tablets...

Amazingly thin and light ; Terrific battery life ; Excellent performance ; Class-leading app selection

iOS 7 still glitchy in places ; Gets expensive fast ; Safari icon remains an abomination

The only real competition is the iPad mini with Retina display

Apple iPad Air

 

The iPad Air is Apple's attempt to make the tablet disappear. The result is an unusually slim, well-built platform for the best array of apps in the business.

Impressively slim and light. Fast. Very good camera. Top-notch app selection. LTE version works with every U.S. carrier

Expensive. Pages and Numbers, while free, don't measure up to Microsoft Office for productivity

Slimmer, lighter, and faster than last year's model, Apple's iPad Air ($499-$929) is the best tablet for the most people. It's a full-fledged computer that's now so thin and light that you won't even notice it's in your bag. Like every iPad before it,...
