iPad Air, iPad Mini, MacBook Pro and OSX Mavericks are launched!
The iPad Air seems to have been inspired by the iPad Mini. Just that the iPad Air is thinner, lighter and easier to hold than the Mini. Apple also introduced iPad Mini with retina display. Both these new devices have some minor internal improvisations, like that in the recently released iPhone 5S. In the so called “October Event”, the company introduced MacBook Pro laptops and OSX Mavericks other than the two iPads. The OSX Mavericks is the latest Operating system for the MacBook. Apple announced it as a free download one.
iPad Air :
Apple's claim that the iPad Air is the thinnest full sized tablet in the world is yet to be proven right. One thing is sure that it has strong similarities with the iPad Mini. It has resemblance with its iPhone 5S brother too. The iPad Air uses the same processor as the iPhone 5S, the 64-bit A7 chip and the M7 motion co-processor makes the two similar. The device is offering a battery life of 10 hours.
When we saw the iPhone 5S and especially 5C, we had a doubt that whether Apple is giving itself away to the tight competitor Android devices by decreasing the price and also the cost of production. But with the new iPad, that doubt s vanished as Apple continue to be in the “premium” level. The new device will be hitting the stores on November 1st. The price tag will be $499, $599, $699 and $799 for the 16GB, 32GB, 64GB and 128GB Wi-Fi models respectively. That will be ranging from Rs.32,000/- to 50,000/-.
iPad Mini :
The iPad Mini after make over is all ready to dazzle the users it seems. The Retina display is something that can add a charm to any usual device, then the case of an iPad is beyond mention. The new iPad Mini will also be launching in November itself, along with the iPad Air. It will be coming in Silver and Space Grey colours.
The Mini also will be running on iOS 7. there will be a 5MP iSight (rear camera) and a 1.2 MP front camera for FaceTime. The iPad Mini with Retina display will be having price tags of $499, $599 and $699, for 16, 32 and 64 GB versions respectively.
