kittan, 23 Oct 2013For the same price of iPad 64gb we can buy surface pro.it is a full computer... Usually when people want to buy tablet, they buy tablet and not laptop or computer...
With an iPad Air already official, should we expect an iPad Pro to go official sometime early 2014 which again will be in line with rumors of Apple testing a 13-inch version of the iPad?
May be iPad Air and iPad Pro is Apple's new nomenclature!

HS, 23 Oct 2013what r you using then??? I just found myself using exclusively my Note II.
Overpriced, lack of features and poor design. The new Note 10.1 is the best tablet out there
Nainu, 22 Oct 2013Very disappointed especially with ipad mini 2. What a bummer. I was thinking of upgrading my o... moreSeriously. What were you expecting ?.Thats the best in class tablet except the price which is tad higher than it should have been.
Dog man, 23 Oct 2013Still not enough reason to the ipad 4. The difference is just tiny. However the note 10.1 20... moreI work in Memory fab, Nand in SSD and Memory card r the same 80 series speed.Only different is the class controller drive it. U can put the fastest SSD 256GB on ipad air which cost less the $100 production cost. Apple definitely charge more.
I've never been a true fan of Apples mobile devices. I've only truly loved my iMac. But these new iPads seem really nice! Chose a Windows RT tablet over the iPad 4, but now both the Mini and the Air have stepped up, and maybe even passed all other tablets. Sweet!
HK richest, 23 Oct 2013Apple makes a lot of margin from Memory.
SD card price different between 16G & 32G is abo... moreI really pity abt ur thought process...
The memory used in ipads or nexus are diffeent than that on micro sd cards... ipad uses memory which are lt faster n more stable than external cards...
Still not enough reason to the ipad 4. The difference is just tiny.
However the note 10.1 2014 edition is a good alternative (assuming you're into android). For some its even better.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2013Apple should change supply for their SSDs as they are obviously being ripped off and having to... moreEr... The 2nd one. The retina display brings the new mini in line with the competition (nexus 7). The price is about 50% higher than it should be, and about 80% higher than said competition. And there just arent enough reasons here to justify the extra expense. 128 gb storage is a neat trick, but for that price? I'll stick with android thanks.
Anonymous, 23 Oct 2013Galaxy Note 10.1 32GB LTE+WiFi vs. iPad Air 32GB LTE+WiFi. Which one most prefer?Note 10.1 should the best
In terms of battery life, the Air did not do any promotion; the official battery life is still ten hours. But the author thinks that battery life has no ascension is understandable, after all, the main selling point of the Air is thin, increase the battery capacity will no doubt increase the overall thickness and weight of the fuselage. And for most users, 10 hours of battery life has enough. If put aside the hardware factors, actually, we did not see too much place of innovation on both of the new products, but on no account can we deny the idea for both products. The author believes that Apple will bring us to again change the world.
Surprise is Greater than the Disappointment --- Apple iPad Air
Regedit, 23 Oct 2013Not Everyone. whilst ipad is dominant in tablet segment, Note is one of the good android based... moreAndroid have ZERO tablets left. All are giant phone UI.
Most apps look the same thru out on S4 / HTC one / Note / tab / Note 10.1 .. all look the same. bloated and stretch.
It could have taken over ipad long ago with the honeycomb UI, and lead the way as the first buttonless OS... but for years the best they could do is MOVE THE THREE BUTTONS to THE MIDDLE OF A 10 inch tablet ..? HOW TO USE?
On iPad, they retain the 4:3 for ease of use in both portrait / landscape, with multi-gesture for fast navigation.. Thats why people still grap iPad even with its limitation.
