Apple pegs price, release date and availability for the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display
Hey ho, Apple just announced the lightest 10-incher and the most resolute mini tablet out there. The iPad Air is incredibly feathery for premium slate, and the 326ppi on the iPad mini with Retina Display speaks for itself.

What, when, where, how much? Chill, it's Apple, so availability is shortly after the grand unveiling, right? Wrong. This time Apple was on the hush-hush about the actual launch, mumbling the cryptic "later in November," which might have nothing to do with change of tradition and all to do with the rumored production issues of that crazy Retina Display on the munchkin. After all, Steve Jobs has never faced such stiff competition from Android and Windows slates, so he'll have to forgive Tim Cook for the supply chain hiccup if he's listening, given the tablets' specs.

As for the good old iPad Air, the lightest 10" slab out there is pegged for the typical short launch after announcement in dozens of countries and even on T-Mobile this time, and can be yours come November 1st even. Pricing? The usual for the Air, a tad premium for the Retina on the iPad mini, quickly scaling right up to the abominable $829 for the new 128 GB version of the 8" slate.
