Apple iPad Air and iPad mini 2 with Retina support more LTE bands than any mobile device

Move over, iPhone 5s and 5c, the new iPads just one-upped you in global LTE bands support. Apple's new iPhones can be run on up to 13 different LTE bands, depending on the version, but the new iPads take it up a notch, and support no less than 14 bands...

Agreed, as anyone who truly appreciates tech value should be looking to Nokia's Lumia 2520.
The Lumia 2520 offers a Full HD display that's easily readable outside, 32gb of storage, 2 gb of RAM, USB and microSDXC expansion slots, industry standard Microsoft Office, durable/thing/lightweight unibody construction in a series of colors/textures, and LTE built-in ALL for US 499.00.
Whereas a similarly optioned iPad 'Air' would cost US 729.00 and iPad Mini 2 would cost 629.00, yet STILL wouldn't include MS Office, 2gb RAM, or any semblance of USB or microSDXC expansion slots.
These 'iterative' updates to Apple's iPads are nice enough, but hardly represent anything groundbreaking (in hardware, software or pricing) that justifies their exorbitant pricing, and Apple's insistance on charging US 100 to go from 16gb to 32gb of storage, and US 129.00 just to add LTE is utterly ridiculous... Especially when compared to devices as full-featured as Nokia's 2520.

I can't wait for cell phones to be like this.
