An ultra-portable, ultra-thin iPad
Display and Design
The iPad Air is the thinnest iPad yet. It weighs just 490g and measures 239.2 x 169.5 x 7.2 mm. It features a 9.7-inch Retina display, with a resolution of 1536 x 2048 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass protection.
Processor and OS
The iPad Air debuted iOS 7, Apple's most advanced operating system yet. Performance is handled by a 64-bit A7 chipset. An M7 co-processor and PowerVR G6430 graphics seal the deal.
Camera and Storage
For imaging, it offers a 5MP rear camera and 1.2MP front camera. The cameras offer features like FaceTime, autofocus, face-detection and geo-tagging. Internal storage is quite low at 16GB, and there is no microSD card slot for expansion either.
Connectivity and Battery
The battery offers 9 hours of juice, and connectivity includes Bluetooth, USB, WiFi and LTE.

Overall: This is the sleekest and lightest tablet in its class, available in the world.nnIt is a 9.7 inch tablet. For people who enjoy surfing the web, a 10 inch tablet is always better than a 7 inch tablet. The websites do not feel cramped on a 10 inch tablet.nnThe display at 2048 x 1536 pixels, with 264 ppi is gorgeous. There is a vast difference when you read an ebook on this tablet, compared to those cheap Android tablets.nnIf you have lots of PDF documents, books, tutorials, which are almost A4 size, then a 10 inch tablet offers a vastly improved reading experience. And with the iPad display and brightness, it really is an amazing experience.nnI am not a fan of Apple and really do hate iTunes, and the fact that I have to use it to sync my music and movies and books to the iPad. Even to add or extract data from apps, I need iTunes. Its far easier with Android. Its a real drawback. Its just so easy on an Android tablet. You can just copy and paste music with folder and sub-folders.nnThe movie player really sucks. I recommend installing VLC, and in iTunes, go to the Apps panel, and add the files into VLC. VLC is great, it plays all kinds of movies.nnIt comes with a lightning port for charging and data transfer. Not easily available when required. A micro-USB charger is so easy to get even if you forget the original at home.nnThere is HDMI out possible on this tablet, but we need to purchase a special, lightning to HDMI converter, which is around 2000+ rupees.nnIf you can live with the quirks of iTunes and are comfortable around syncing data through iTunes then buy this tablet. If you would prefer Android, there are quite a few cheaper options available. Sadly, Google Nexus 10 is not one of them.nnFrom the allote dcapacity, some of the capacity goes to the OS. In addition, there is one other part, called "Others". This keeps growing. After some time, this would be huge. And completely useless. It stores stuff like crash logs, caches etc. And iTunes does not help in cleaning this up. You will need to buy special softwares to clean this up.nnNot the best experience as far as software and ease of use, but the hardware is gorgeous and really what makes it stand apart.nnPros :nThe sleekest tablet available in the market.nIt is also the lightest tablet in its category.nHigh pixel density on the display.nnCons :nLightning port.nNeed iTunes to sync.nNo expandable memory.
