The iPad is now on its fifth iteration and with it comes a new name, the iPad Air. True to the moniker, Apple’s latest full-size tablet has been put on a significant diet. It retains the same 9.7-inch display but with a bezel that is 43 percent thinner along with a 20 percent reduction in overall thickness.
As we move closer to the end of the year everyone’s moving to refresh their lineups in preparation for the lucrative holiday season. Apple just announced a new iPad Air and iPad mini Retina, Microsoft pushed out the second generation Surfaces, Amazon Kindles hedged its bets on high-end hardware and real-time support, Samsung did its own thing with numerous Android devices, and Google is set to refresh the Nexus line later this month.
