Apple iPad Air (Wi-Fi + LTE)

Verge Review

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 and PCs to cars and trucks. “PCs are going to be like trucks,” said Jobs. "They’re still going to be around. They’re still going to have a lot of value. But they’re going to be used by like one out of x people.” Jobs predicted that the vast majority of people will eventually use tablets as a...

    The iPad air is an amazing tablet and has the best ecosystem with iOS 7 and about 475,000 optimized tablet app., It has an amazing screen with that looks like there are no pixels in existence. It has an amazing a7 and m7 processor which helps the iPad air scream in performance and games. It has a great FaceTime camera with great video quality, though it can get a bit noisy, it still is crisp and sharp enough for conference calls and FaceTime calls with your friends or whatnot. The speakers are sound nice and crisp but I give it an 8 because of the placement of them and it gets muffled pretty easily if your holding the iPad in portrait mode, but when your holding it in landscape or just resting on your desk , it sounds great. The battery life is insane it lasts a whole day and more with heavy use. So the iPad air is the tablet to beat in my eyes, and I recommend the iPad air to all.
