Here are some just to name a few tablets that have NFC since two years ago or more for your tiny brain consumption:
Sony Xperia Tablet Z LTE 10.1" - 2013 February
Asus Google Nexus 7 - 2012 June
Samsung Ativ Tab P8510 10.1" - 2012 October
... and others!
Just admit that your beloved Apple is always two years behind the competition!
Next time do some research before you post your useless reply!
4 CPU cores.
1.9Ghz single core max boost.
1.7Ghz dual core max boost.
1.5Ghz quad core max boost.
There's a frikkin USB port on an iPad and THAT gets missed out in the headline???
Sigh, A9 IS NOT A CPU, it is a SoC which houses CPU, GPU, co-processor and modems.
Oh no, another new Ipad.. Im still saving my money to buy Ipad Mini. Technology is so fast.. i mean the money.
It is not the fact that it has NFC that is the issue, rather the implementation.
NFC has been on Android for a long time, yet no crucial implementation came out of it. Apple Pay arrived like yesterday and took over mobile payments by storm.
iPads are already being used as payment terminals utilizing Square card readers in the US. This might take Point of Sales using Apple Pay worldwide, with Android playing catch up.
It says it has a 12.9" screen. Don't hope for the SD card slot though.
You should have included the USB type C in the title as it's the highlight.
AdamBoy64, 04 May 2015Very nice, it's going to be quite a powerful device.Yes, the force has to be strong with the user to use this jedi device

but Apple just "Re-invent It" !!!
Didn't all of us already know Apple "Know-How To Tell A Story" to copycat an existing or other brand feature and then "re-invent it"?
That's it???? Nothing new except new CPU and some useless NFC and connector! Come on how about getting a bigger 12'screen or a SD slot and things to improve their new ipad useability!
Tcool, 04 May 2015NFC? Really? LOL! It was introduced by other brands two years ago. Apple is always two years... moreThere are only 26 tablets in the market right now that have NFC. Additionally, most of them are recent, so I don't see how Apple is 2 years behind competition.
they have only one port in a laptop and you expect them to put 2 in a tablet ?
It needs to run Mac OS X, have pen and detachable keyboard otherwise it's useless.
Good ipad from Apple gaint. i think ipad series always best tablest and No.1 choosen of customer..
Don't Smile! They will introduce NFC revolution first of kind with so call special connective function and sue all others who already uses NFC function with Apple late grant patents.
LOL! It was introduced by other brands two years ago.
Apple is always two years behind the competition!
