iPad 2 and iPad Air


/ by Serkan Kaplan

Speaking at today's launch event in San Francisco, Phil Schiller just announced the next iteration of the company's tablet. Naturally, it's thinner, lighter and more powerful -- hence the new name: the iPad Air. And Cupertino takes that moniker seriously; this slate weighs just one pound (down from the fourth-gen model's 1.4 pounds). It also boasts a 43 percent thinner bezel and a 20-percent thinner profile; it's just 7.5mm thick this time around.

As expected, the new iPad Air sports a 9.7-inch Retina display, and there's an A7 processor under the hood along with an M7 motion chip. The 5-megapixel iSight camera is capable of shooting 1080p video, and the FaceTime camera on the front includes "larger pixels" and a backside-illuminated sensor for better image quality. Finally, the iPad Air sports dual mics. As far as battery life goes, expect about 10 hours.

The Air will ship on November 1st to several countries, including the US, UK, China and Japan. Notably, this is the first time China will get the iPad on launch day. When the tablet is available, you'll have your choice of "silver and white" or "space gray and black" color options.
