I had purchased an I pad Air for my ward as Apple had been marketing it to his high school.
Within 1 year, I has to get the screen repaired 3 times. Its a constant irritant and the device is therefore not suitable for school use. All other parents have the same complaint.
My Apple airpad2 has a SIM card slot.But when l insert a SIM it doesn't work,why?
What's app can be used in this iPad Air 2 which should be launched from app store

I even had the chance of getting the Samsung Note Pro 12.2, but I was thinking more of the right size and the purpose. I could have also really gotten an iPad Air.
I use my Surface 2 for my graduate schooling, and my thesis is coming up. I got 200GB OneDrive free from the purchase as well for 2 years. For the price, full USB 3.0, very big cloud storage, better front facing camera of 3.5MP for Skype, easier connection for presentations, full Office with full Outlook, and good full tactile keyboard.
It's true that iOS devices have the most and latest apps. But I have the essentials for what I intend to use my Surface 2's features for. Direct files transfers is very essential as well, especially big ones without special connectors or adapters.
TheNeighbor, 19 Nov 2014Sounds like somebody just read up about it... You would know that malware can't get through... moreYeah, I know that. Something like 90% of what you said iPad is capable of sans multi window, USB 3.0 and micro SD card slot. iPad comes with iWorks also, an full blown Office Suite of Apple. Macs and iOS are more virus free than windows and built with security in priority. Kick Stand, keyboard? There are vast array of hardware accessories purposely designed for iOS devices, nothing comes close to that, there is even a camera drone! If I need something for Office, I would rather buy device with full blown windows rather than half baked RT which has the least apps available. Everybody else are enjoying top games and apps while windows RT is left behind. This device simply doesnt have any purpose, doesnt run desktop apps and doesnt come with decent app marketplace? What else could you do with it?

You would know that malware can't get through WInRT, right? It's a closed system.
The thing about these "poor" Surface RT tablets is that they are more focused for those who would need a virus free and more productive with Office, and that built-in kickstand and FULL USB 3.0 go a long way.
I can mirror to a smart TV wirelessly and without a special device like an Apple Airport. I can have multi-windows. I have the full Office free. I can plug in to an HDMI projector. I have a micro SD card memory expansion. I bought that 5.5mm thick tactile full keyboard cover that has back-lighting.
I can definitely see the iPad Air as a very light fun device, however I just don't like the fact I can't directly transfer data to and from anyone without those special accessories.

Galaxy Note devices feel cheap, no doubt about it.
Unknown, 18 Nov 2014Looks like an amazing tablet but I very satisfied with its predecessor and I will and I think ... moreAgreed, those who have Air have enough power even for 3D games in Retina resolution, but those with iPad 3 and 4 should really consider upgrading, either to Air or Air 2, the 3 and 4 are seriously underpowered for their display resolution, plus big and heavy and in general unpleasant to use compared to Air. I know some would disagree and say that iPad 4 is good enough becoze of its connector but i think that is unsound reasoning, iPad 3 and 4 are both the reason why so many developers dont make even simple gamez in retina resolution, 3 and 4 just cant run any games in that resolution.
Air 2 for heavy duty tablet gamers, 32GB Air for everyone else, according to this review it even offers an hour more webbrowsing, that matters to normal users.
TheNeighbor, 18 Nov 2014LOL, it runs Windows RT. You must be confusing it with the Surface Pro lineup. It has a kickst... moreOf course I know windows RT running surface, those poor tablet with app marketplace that can be counted by hands only.
Looks like an amazing tablet but I very satisfied with its predecessor and I will and I think I will not upgrade before air 4 or 5

And at the same time, you can download torrents with your iOS devices with a specific procedure. Should I judge them or you as well?
