All about Apple's new iPad Air and iPad mini
So, here's the deal: just as expected, we got two new iPads. The full-sized iPad Air (with a new, cool name) will continue to treat us to the beautiful 9.7" high-resolution display, but will do so using the faster, 64-bit A7 chipset. More importantly, though, it'll have a brand new external design, with thin side bezels, lighter weight and thinner profile. It's absolutely a looker, but perhaps even more importantly, it'll be easier to hold and use due to its more compact and lighter design, and that's pretty big as far as 10" tablets go. Meanwhile, we have the new iPad mini 2, which may not introduce any visible changes to its exterior, but improves crucial components such as the screen resolution and the processor. Thankfully, both tablets will be available quite soon - the iPad Air (starts at $499) will go on sale on November 1, while the iPad mini 2 (starts at $399) will join it a bit later in November.
