The iPad Air went on sale on Friday. It's easier to compare it to its predecessor in the Apple stable, but not that easy when it comes to other vendors like Microsoft and Samsung.
The iPad Air was launched today and it is lighter and more powerful than its predecessors. Pricing? Same old, same old. The iPad Mini 2 with Retinal Display also made it out the gate but it's going to work out $100 more than the old versions. They will, no doubt, sell like crazy this holiday season, but you might want to think about Amazon and Google and what they have on deck.
