Apple unveils iPad Air with thinner bezels, A7 chip

updated 02:18 pm EDT, Tue October 22, 2013

Ships November 1st

Apple today announced the iPad Air, a fifth generation of its flagship 9.7-inch tablet. The name stems from its new design, which weighs just 1 pound, in part thanks to thinner side bezels. Inside it uses an A7 processor, paired with an M7 motion co-processor. It includes a 5 megapixel iSight camera, a 1080p FaceTime HD camera, and dual microphones. Wireless technology incorporates Bluetooth 4.0, extended LTE coverage, and 802.11n Wi-Fi with MIMO antennas, potentially doubling Wi-Fi performance up to 300Mbps.

The tablet will come in silver/white and space gray colors, and continue to offer up to 10 hours of battery life. A 16GB model will start at $499. 32GB is $599, 64GB is $699, and 128GB is $799.

The product is set to launch in about 40 countries on November 1st. Significantly, one of those countries will be China, which has never before been a launch region for the iPad.

    No fingerprint sensor. Hmmm...not needed or not production-available?

    I understand no biosensor due to limited supply, but why no 256GB or 802.11ac?
    128GB is what the iPad Mini has ... No room for another 128 GB chip? or is that 6 months from now?
    Please give us what we want ... Now!
