Apple launches new iPad Air, iPad Mini

NEW IPADS. Apple shows off two new iPads in its October keynote

Apple unveiled a refreshed lineup of tablets at its “we’ve got a lot more to cover” event in San Francisco Tuesday, October 22 (October 23 Philippine time). The iPad Air is an updated version of the original 9.7-inch iPad. The new model adapts the form factor of last year’s iPad mini, with a smaller bezel and diamond cut chamfered edges. At 1 pound, Apple is calling it the “lightest full sized tablet in the world.” The iPad Air is available in silver and space gray and starts shipping in select markets (not including the Philippines) on November 1, 2013. The 16GB WiFi-only model is priced at $499 and goes up to $929 for the 128GB WiFI + Cellular model. A much requested feature, Apple finally brought the Retina screen to the iPad mini. The new iPad mini with Retina display fits 3.1 million pixels (2048 x 1536) into its 7.9-inch screen. If you’re counting that’s about 326 pixels per inch. The iPad mini with Retina display starts at $399 (US) for the 16GB WiFi only base model and goes up to $829 for the 128GB WiFi + Cellular models.
