Having used the new ipad air for a day I think the lost space from the smaller bezel should have went on a 10.6" 16:9 display. Android tablets offer nothing over ipad other than this. Apps could easily adapt to 16:9 like the Iphone. 16:9 would be better for films and browsing. The new design simply makes it feel 16:9 on a 4:3 screen. It's strange people talk about ipad air as a alternative to the mini now. It will be a long year wait for any pro model.
