    When can we start to see reviews for the iPad air? I heard a rumor about tomorrow? Anyone else?

    Not that I am waiting for a review to buy, I would love to see more footage of the device!

    I wanna see a review mainly due to the reduced battery size. I want assurances that it is still just as good as the iPad4 battery before I buy.

    will we be able to see the amount of ram with the review or do we need to wait for a teardown?

    Certain folks get advance units to review, play with, etc. BUT, the agreement with Apple is that they can not release and reviews until a certain date, hence the term "embargo". Happens with most new products from Apple.

    Nope, not Wednesday. if you look at the last few launches it's always Tuesday at 9pm EST. We'll unless you stop using the internet in the early evening or read newspapers.

    RAM can be found without a true teardown. Go to Anandtech for the best review on spec.

    Yeah it doesn't need a full teardown. Just someone to run the Geekbench app on it in a review

    I agree, I have an iPad 3 and I am so impressed with the battery life!
