Apple iPad Air

5 of 8



The iPad Air is the first iPad to dramatically change the design of Apple’s 9.7-inch screen tablet. It cuts down the screen surround to make a tablet that looks better, is much more portable and a good deal lighter.

People often criticise Apple as a company that copies others, but Apple leads the pack with the iPad Air. It has none of design gimmickery of the Xperia Tablet Z, and is a tablet that convinced us it’s still the 10-inch iPad – not the iPad mini – that most people will probably want. To make a tablet this large and so well-made as light as it is makes it a serious milestone.
