iPad Air: First impressions on return from Apple Store
Although I haven't yet clapped eyes on the new Air, I know someone who has. My friend Janice has now arrived home and had a chance to play with the new device:
Now back home and seriously impressed with the new iPad Air. In its case it weighs 600 grams while the mini in its case weighs 425g. As the new mini is reputedly slightly heavier than the old one, it definitely makes the purchase of the Airir a best buy. The leather case is very light and doesn't add any bulk to the iPad. It feels very nice too, with none of those nasty sharp edges of the old synthetic iPad case. I am more than happy to get back to both the larger screen and the retina display, which I seriously missed on the mini.
