What is iPad Air? Well, it seems that the previous generations of the iPad started from the ground and were all aiming to fly and it happens that the 5th iPad was born with wings. You can call it a sort of evolution of a species.

Why is iPad 5 called iPad Air? It is probably because it weighs less at only 1 pounds and can do a bit more than what previous iPads could do. The iPad Air is lighter, faster and could almost fly without wings.

Apple announced unveiled iPad 5 on Tuesday with a lot of media coverage.
The product will start being available as from November 1 2013. It is the latest iPad as at this date.

If you ask me, I'd say the iPad Air is not much different from the iPad mini with Retina display apart from its thickness and tech support. Also, apart from the retina display, thickness and tech support, it's also not much different from the iPad mini.

Apple never seems to give up and Nokia/Microsoft are also trying to compete. I noticed that Nokia has released their own new tablet called Lumia 2520. I wonder if it is better to buy a Nokia tablet or iPad Air.
