Apple’s newest full-sized tablet barely made the usual roar that its predecessor did. On the contrary, the most talked about aspect about the new tablet is the rather cold reception of the iPad users during its official launch date last November 1. Several Apple stores from all parts of the world noted significantly shorter lines for the iPad Air tablet, compared to the launching of iPad mini and iPhone 5c and 5s. Some outlets even expected bigger crowd, considering that Apple did not allow any pre-order for the latest tablet.
iPad air is the fifth installment of the full-sized Apple tablets, which first entered the market in 2010. In retains the classic 9.7-inch size, but only weighs 1 pound, making it the lightest and thinnest full-sized tablet to date. Apart from the improved external features, this new iPad is also equipped with the latest A7 processor of Apple, known to be the fastest so far.
Less than a week since the launching of the tablet, we have already gathered a bunch of interesting and diverse reactions on iPad air online.
Why people love it
Majority of the people who were eagerly waiting for the release of iPad Air are already users of either iPad 1 or iPad 2. Most of these stuck with their almost 9-inch tablets despite the massive success of iPad mini. Some people just need wider screen, and the forerunners of iPad air gave exactly just that. But, people were looking forward to iPad Air because of the promise of better mobility given the lightness of the tablet. That is besides the faster processor that comes with iPad Air. For some people, the improvements in iPad Air is beyond aesthetics, and it’s definitely a good catch for those who want to get their hands on the newest A7 processor of Apple. iPad Air is simply the most awaited upgrade for the tablets enthusiasts.
What the cynics say
Some reviews however claim that iPad Air offers nothing revolutionary. By this, people tend to compare the improvement from iPhone 3G to iPhone 4, or iPhone 5 to iPhone 5s. With this, they believe that iPad Air do not have the same value for money as the other gadget versions that Apple has released this year. These unmet expectations likewise prompted some avid tablet users to explore other powerful tablets in the market such as Google Nexus 5 and Samsung Galaxy Note 3. For loyal Apple users, buzz on the release of the iPad mini 2 with Retina display is widely circulating online, with Apple execs announcing its release within the month.
What do you think of iPad Air? Could this finally be the right tablet for you?
Do you know what Gold Genie is? Well, even I didn’t know until recently when they came up with a gold plated version of HTC One. Yes, Gold Genie is known for gold plating popular gadgets and smart phones.
According to a latest update, Apple has sold over five million units of 5S. Gold Genie has built a sleek, thin, faster, popular and a more vibrant 24-carat Apple iPhone 5S. Due to the increasing demand of 5S it has been estimated that another million or two sets will be sold out within a couple of weeks worldwide.
The 24-carat gold Apple iPhone 5S will be available in black or white tops with the middle, back, and sides embellished in gold. 5S from Gold Genie is made to be grabbed in three different options – gold, platinum and rose gold. It will also feature a trio of designs that have been laced with utterly flawless and astounding Swarovski crystals. 5S will be SIM free and can be unlocked to work on all networks across the globe.
This new gold version of iPhone 5S, which is certainly an object of desire, has been officially unveiled at the Dubai Mall on 27th September at the Collector’s Palace. Take note that a 24 carat gold plated iPad 2 has also been unveiled in Dubai last year. To ensure the exclusivity and uniqueness, every single gold-plated version of iPhone 5S will be individually numbered, and will be presented in a fine, custom made wooden box, along with a certificate of authenticity. How royal!!!!
The new Apple iPhone 5s, where S means “same” brings along faster, new camera and a clever fingerprint reader. But is it enough of an upgrade? The iPhone 5S: a phone that looks like the iPhone 5, but goes so much more under the hood. Is that going to be enough to impress the consumers?
Apple obviously is known of this change, be it the unibody of the HTC One, or the new fight into low-light cameras or the need for a strong processor as a headline to shout about. And to be fair, it’s addressed these needs to some degree or other on the new iPhone 5S.
The design of this new iPhone is almost same to the previous one. theres not much really new here that’s going to help you work out if the person sitting next to you on the train is rocking a new phone.
But on the other hand that’s not necessarily a bad thing either; just because it’s not an unique design, this doesn’t make the iPhone 5S any less premium. It’s still a great phone to hold, coming with great things like the all-aluminium-and-glass chassis. Great no?
Apple has launched the new iPhone with not one, but two, chips that will help it become one of the most powerful phones in the market. The A7 and M7 chip are the new and big thing.
So to say that this is the best iPhone yet is pointless, as of course it was going to be. But the combination of iOS 7 freshen things up with a powerful core and great camera mean that this phone should be considered on its own advantagets, and while the high price will continue to put many off, anyone already addicted to the iPhone bandwagon, or even if they’re just on the fence, will find a lot of joy in a phone that’s a lot more than the new update.
