    iPad Air: All the best inside – Still missing something

    Every-time I am thinking about iPad, what images fill my mind is beauty. From 2010, every iPad is a masterpiece of art. But 2013 iPad Air has no comparison at all. As its name suggests, the Air comes with a revamped design that sheds almost half a pound of weight, along with a couple millimeters of thickness and a significant amount of bezel area. At the same time, it maintains the same 9.7-inch Retina display that defined the last two iPads. While that's impressive enough in its own right, Apple also managed to make the device more powerful, thanks to the same A7 chip that already powers the iPhone 5s.

    The iPad Air borrows a lot of the learning’s from its more popular ultraportable counterpart, Mac Air. The iPad Air shrinks all dimensions compared to its predecessors and in some cases does so quite substantially. The iPad Air does not look like any other full size iPad that came before it –– it looks like a blown up iPad Mini. The bezel around the 9.7-inch Retina display is 20% slimmer and the overall weight of the slate has been reduced to 469g, a 28% reduction from the iPad 4, making it the lightest full-size tablet on market. In the hand the Air feels feather-light, never before has a full-size tablet felt so portable and useable. Nothing else comes close to matching it in this regard.

    How tough durable iPad Air is?

    As you are assuming from the title of my article, I am not writing a iPad Air review. I am just trying to understand you more about the new iPad. So in the next part I quickly cover many aspects of iPad Air.

    The display aboard the iPad Air remains unchanged and is the same 9.7-inch IPS setup – a 2048x1536 pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch, exactly same as the iPad 4. Whats new is Apple add a touchscreen sensor in order to ensure the iPad Air’s reduced bezel does not hamper the overall user experience. If your thumb is partially resting on the display to support the device, the Air does not register it because it knows which hand you use for business and which you use for support. It also works seamlessly, effortlessly sliding into the background of the iPad Air’s user experience.

    iPad Air has the Apple A7 chipset which claims twice the performance power as the A6X, not to mention 64-bit compatibility, as well as the M7 motion-tracking coprocessor. There are some design differences as well. A pair of speaker grilles flanks the Lightning port on the bottom, instead of on the lower-left corner of the back, where they used to be. Apple used nano-SIM instead of micro-SIM in Air and it's moved to the lower-right side of the body.

    In addition to the standard Bluetooth 4.0 and aGPS/GLONASS support, you'll also get dual-band 802.11a/b/g/n WiFi, with one major difference: The Air includes MIMO (Multiple input, multiple output) connectivity, a feature that is starting to become more commonplace in tablets. This means that the iPad takes advantage of more than one antenna, allowing the device to send and receive data much more quickly.

    The Apple iPad Air keeps the camera from the previous iPad - a 5MP shooter that can record 1080p video. The only thing that has reportedly changed is that the sensor has benefited from an improved backside illumination technology. The image quality is very good and better than the previous iPad. Noise is kept well under control, sharpness is good enough.

    The Air comes with the latest version of iOS, 7.0.3, which is available for every device capable of running the new love-it-or-hate-it operating system. Aside from a few essential bug fixes, the refresh comes with iCloud Keychain, a feature that lets you share passwords and credit card info across your iOS devices, as well as a new Safari password generator. Otherwise, there are essentially no software enhancements that you'll be missing out on by not owning an Air.

    Missing iPad Features
    With so much raw power inside the new iPad, I definitely look like to use it more and more. But it still has all the classic Apple problem. No USB-On-the Go (OTG), lengthy PC connectivity, no microSD support is not forgivable in 2013. And the price Apple asks for bigger storage is simply too much. You can also read how they are cutting our pocket by bigger storage version of iPad Air.

    We can also want more megapixel camera in iPad, atleast 8MP. That would be nice for professional use. Another funny thing is Apple forget to include GPS receiver in the Wi-Fi-only version!

    is a ipad air like a tablet

    Apple took a big step in the right direction with this year's iPad lineup by equaling the mini and the Air's specs, so the only thing you need to choose is the screen size that works best for you. This puts the iPad Air in a sticky position, considering Samsung is doing great in with Note 10.1. So at the end it’s always Android or Apple. And my vote goes for Android because of unlimited freedom.

    If you wanted to see the latest iPad Air price on Amazon then check this out. Amazon has the storage variants of iPad Air- 16Gb, 32Gb, 64Gb and 128GB. They also offers iPad Air with various US operators like AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile and Verizon
