Apple’s lighter and faster iPad Air hits stores today

Apple has released their iPad Air product today that weighs 28% lighter than previous models at just one pound. The thinned down tablet is also 20% thinner than previous iPads at 7.5 millimeters. For processing power the iPad Air utilizes an A7 chip with 64-bit architecture and M7 motion coprocessor, adding speeds up to two-times faster in both CPU and graphics performance. For Wi-Fi connectivity, the tablet uses MIMO technology with two antennas at both the transmitter and receiver to improve performance. iPad Air is also available with cellular connectivity through AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, and Verizon.

The tablet features a 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi-Touch display with IPS technology at 2048×1536 resolution (264 PPI). For battery life, the iPad Air is rated up to 10 hours on a single charge.

On the software side the iPad Air comes with iOS 7 installed, Apple’s newest operating system that was designed for 64-bit architecture. iOS 7 comes with new features that include improved multitasking, Control Center, and AirDrop – a new feature that allows file transfers between Apple devices without being connected to the same network. Devices compatible with AirDrop include iPhone 5, iPad 4th-generation, iPad Mini and the iPod Touch 5th-generation.

Several memory configurations are available in both Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + Celluar models, with solid state flash memory in 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB capacity. Prices range from $499 on the low end to $929 on the high end. The iPad Air is available in two colors: either Space Gray or Silver.
