Apple have just announced the latest device in the iPad range, the fifth generation iPad Air:
Another excellent entry to the we-tailor-to-the-millionaires line of devices.
It... looks like a big iPad Mini.
Pretty interested in it, Apple doesn't show any interesting innovations though which is a deal breaker.
I don't think you need to be a millionare to afford that.
What if you have 15 other Apple devices?
To me, it's just a slightly improved iPad 3. No big deal. Try innovation like Samsung did (AKA Flexible screens) then get back to me.
I'm not entirely sure how they're supposed to innovate when it comes to a flat slab of plastic with a screen attached to it. A tablet is a tablet, right now it's a specs and OS war more than anything.
I see iPad everywhere but not about the Surface 2 Launch, good grief that is more exiting then some Apple product with underpowered hardware...
OMG GUYS OMG ITS APPLE PRODUCT OMG I MUST HAVE OGMGOMOGMOGOMGMOGOMGMO
well what do you know, another apple device that will completely forgot about next october because the brand new iPad Air Pro will be released then. Way to go apple, so innovative. Releasing the exact same products year after year. how do you do it guys? how do you keep customers releasing awful overpriced products that were literally the same thing last edition. please im dying to know how do you do it apple?
lets see... a $500 apple ipad (thats the same as last release, just a 'omg so amazing' new look) or a $400 Nexus 10. ipad or nexus ipad or nexus ipad or nexus hmmmmmm I wonder if I should go with the awful apple product? I sure made an awful decision last time I did that. Apple is a joke
My thoughts exactly. I should have the right to slap anyone that says Apple is better than anything. At least Microsoft still supports Vista, their worst OS yet.
Yay, another barely improved ipad!
Of course they can innovate, they can make NEW things. Like bending the screens for example that you get a book effect for real or a new kind of touch screen.
There's a reason it's called innovation Foxi, you need to find brand new things(or steal them, whatever you prefer) and use them in your product. There are so many things people did love to see in their iPads. My mom'd love to see a build in stylus(A bit like the Samsung Galaxy Note 10.1 for example) because styluses can be really useful. It's no real innovation but at least they are trying. Thing is already light enough, old people can hold it, babies can so why make it even waaaay lighter then it was? Why not add that high quality stylus for all those people who want it?
Win ME was worse then Vista tho.
Vista, if tweaked a lot, isn't all that bad.
I'm getting tired of this apple bullcrap. The iPod touch 4g was my last Apple product I'll ever buy. If for whatever reason I need to run osx (don't know why I ever would) theres always hackintosh, and hey its even cheaper to build a better machine and make it a hackintosh than buy an iMac
Can't wait for my nexus 5
Uhm, yeah, that folding thing's been done already - Sony Xperia Tablet P? Mind you, that's not a foldable screen, but the end result is pretty much the same. As for the stylus, capacitive touchscreens aren't really friends with standard styluses, but I suppose they could bundle a capacitive screen compatible stylus with their device.
In any case, I suppose you're right, but I wouldn't call a "folding tablet" a tablet anymore due to the differences in the form-factor and adding a stylus wouldn't really be "innovation", rather just adding an additional accessory to the kit. I would also be careful with using the term "innovation" with those two as both solutions already exist and have existed for a while.
Because people like shiny shiny things.
people who buy every apple product (like year after year) are one of two things: rich and ignorant or just ignorant
so if its $500 in America, then here in Portugal its about 500€.
just to let you guys know, where i live most people make between 500-600 euros a month.
so here you basically have to be a millionaire to buy one
Don't forget that OS X Mavericks is released today, along with new revisions on the original iPad (5th revision now?) and the Mac Pro (available December) and the Macbook Pros (which have all been moved to Retina lines starting at $1299 for a 13 inch).
Isn't it the great advantage of choosing and developing for Apple products that there's few models? Yeah, 'bout that...
Isn't it the point of mobile development to be easy and inexpensive, which super-high resolutions work against?
Can I go knock some pundits heads now?
