    11:08 am 7.5mm thin versus 9.4mm for previous version
    11:08 am 43% thinner than previous version.

    43% thinner? :confused:
    11:12 am iPad 2 will remain $399 for 16GB Wi-Fi.
    and they're still selling the iPad 2?

    Edit: Looks like November launch date.

    It might finally be time to upgrade from my first generation iPad though ;)
    I do still make good use of it though, so I'm thinking a MacBook would be a better purchase for me at this time since I don't have a laptop.

    One is referring to the thickness of the device, the other (43%) refers to the thickness of the bezel compared to the 4th gen.

    Incredible device. The best tablet ever made. I think Apple just buried Android tablets forever..

    They seem nervous as they present ?

    iPad Air ... A7 the only wow seems to be the surprise at the name.

    Anxiously awaiting to see how the iPad Air feels in my hand compared to the mini, before I decide which one I'm getting.

    There's been one 6 month upgrade since the iPad 1. A student of history you are not.

    This should have been announced today. Ipad air is not great with the current specs. I guess we need to wait more.
