You are.

I've lost count of  iPad versions anyway.

I have the one I Iike (Mini) and will keep it until it's no longer supported and it's 3 year John Lewis cover runs out.

Not overly concerned with having the latest thing every time Apple have a launch.

I love iPads they are my favourite gadget, and I really wanted to hear about the new ones.  I am now looking forward to seeing them in person, from what I read the iPad Air sounds good.  I am not sure it will tempt me to part with any cash at the moment though, perhaps next time.  We will see.

RE: Ipad Air

It's a bit more powerful, a bit thinner and still expensive.

That's it isn't it? Oh, no, they have given it the "Air" tag to try and cash in on the name of the laptop.

 

Me, I quite like the new Nokia tablet... Smile

I saw the iPad mini for £250 in John Lewis today - can't be too bad.

I think Apple have been

I think Apple have been really clever with the Ipad Air and addressed the main issue with the product - its weight and they will sell bundles of them as a result.

RE: I think Apple have been

Apple have just done the same as other manufacturers and make it thinner and lighter. As usual people get caught up in the hysteria.

 

A Kindle Fire HDX for example is about 100g lighter with better battery life and a higher resolution screen than the Ipad Air. We havent seen the new Nexus 11 yet either.

And I'd still much prefer to have a 16:9 aspect if I'm going to be watching videos on it, rather than losing 25% of the screen to black bars either side.

A film on a Nexus 10 will look about 29% larger than on a Ipad due to the aspect ratio.

What hysteria?this thread has only a dozen posts.
Why when people don't like apple products do they feel they have to convince everybody.

Lack of retina display so it doesn't encroach on iPad Air's sales.
