The iPad Air is the most significant upgrade to the 9.7-inch iPad in its history. It’s lighter, more portable, more usable and faster than any previous iPad. It doesn’t fundamentally change what you can do with a tablet, but if you’re in the market for one the iPad Air really is the best iPad to date. Competition is definitely more stiff among the smaller tablets thanks to the Nexus 7, but in the nearly 10-inch tablet space it seems like Apple is going to continue to enjoy a great position there.
The iPad Air review can’t get any more detailed than that. Now, waiting for the retina iPad Mini review and to figure out how retina iPad Mini stacks against the iPad Air. I’m somehow inclined to pick for the retina iPad Mini, but still wouldn’t vouch for it as a clear winner among the two.
