Finally a decent upgrade for my iPad 2, currently deciding between Sony Z3 Tablet Compact and this.

Another year and I'm still going to hold onto to my old ipad. It's served me well. But I'm holding off on a z3 tablet announcement. Plzzzzzzzzzzz sony. 805 with same omni balance and battery life is all I need. Although I'm wishing sony would put a homebrew processor with Nvidia gpu in their xperia.

This new iPad is not bad, but as for the mini, that's a worthless cash grab if there ever was one.

I am surprised Apple didn't put the better camera and processor in the Mini. The mini is a big let down because of this if you ask me. The air 2 looks impressive though. Amazing to me how thin they made it.

The thinnest tablet is not iPad Air 2. That title goes to Dell Venue 8 7000 series 8inch model :D

Which, from what I know, isn't market ready.

Apple didn't mention that on their keynote and I suppose if they had amped RAM, they would've made a big fanfare of that. There were lots of rumors about iPad Air 2 having 2 gigs of RAM but nothing tangible. What is your source about it?

iPads feel like they are losing their ground since 2013. The Note 10.1 2014 edition was far more refined than the iPad released in that year. Not to mention the Tab S this year going against the iPad Air 2. iPads are always the same. Slap new 'improved' camera, 'A8', thinner body and so on...let's call it a new tab.

Well, iOS devices are simple platforms that depend on the App Store. For Apple, they only need to keep incrementally solidifying and bettering the ground work. Third party developers take care of the rest. Boring? Maybe. Flatlining? Far, far from it.

It is people preferences and how they use their tablets. My opinion is, iOS suits better for tablet and Android suits better for smartphones. I never prefer any android tablet since the security is a concern with the open source OS. So, Since i do internet banking through tablet i prefer ipad.

Open source has security issue? Why would bank, military and other high security sites choose it. They choose it because they want to know exactly what does into the codes and whether there any back door. My company use both Microsoft and Open OS. Microsoft is deploy for admin and application platform. While open source take care of infrastructure and security needs.

I have heard so many hacking problems in the Android platform. Few weeks back one big issue were going on here in Malaysia about hacking bank account details and looting the money. Only iDevices were announced by the police as safe to do the banking.

Wonder if the audio quality suffered a downgrade like the iPhone 6. Apparently Apple hasn't figured out how to include a high quality audio system in a "thin" device.
