The new ipad Air was unveiled yesterday, October 23, 2013 together with the new ipad Mini (with Retina Display). iPad Air, the latest generation of ipad is expected to be released by November or December. How much is the price of ipad Air in the Philippines? Without contract I’ve listed the prices below the same as prices for prepaid plans.
The new ipad brags about lightness thus it is called iPad Air. It’s literally just a pound in weight. Slimness and lightness reign in the tablet world. This gadget is 285 lighter and 20% thinner than its predecessor. Its other features are listed below together with main specs.

Why should you buy this new ipad Air?
If you don’t have an ipad yet, yes I recommend you buy one especially if you love browsing the internet often, going on Facebook, Twitter, Intagram and other social media. You can also use this ipad Air for saving documents using Microsoft Word related apps and other products such as iWord and CloudOn if you are a student or a writer. Geez it is also useful to bloggers. Microsoft is into finally releasing Microsoft Office for ipad but it’s not free.
This new ipad is also clearer and sharper than the old ones. I’ve been waiting for the 5MP feature like that of an iphone and now here it is.
If you don’t badly need this tablet and you still have your old ipad, then don’t buy a new one. Instead, save your money. It’s more than half a grand. It’s really not that cheap. Why not save your money and let it earn more by opening a Trust Fund or investing to any money-making wheel. Read our MONEY section to know more. You’ll thank me. 🙂
