The iPad Air is so far, the lightest and smartest iPad ever made by Apple Inc. With the impressive thickness of about 7.5mm and with the weight around only a pound, it is truly an attractive easy-to-carry tablet.
Though the iPad Air might cause some winces when it comes to its high pricing, which ranges from $499 to $929, many of the customers might be looking for some carrier, easy installment, and finance options. While the lines of customers steadily increasing for the Apple iPhone 5S Gold, we are not expecting the same lines to appear for the new iPad Air.
