Apple unveiled the highly anticipated iPad Air yesterday at a press event. Sprint announced that the carrier will offer iPad Air with WiFi + Cellular starting Friday, 1st November. The carrier also announced that they’ll carry the new iPad Mini with Retina display later in November, but didn’t give any exact date. I’m beginning to think that all the rumors about the constrained supply of iPad Mini with Retina might be true after all.
“iPad Air combines with Sprint’s powerful 4G LTE network and our aggressively priced rate plans to bring customers an outstanding tablet experience,” said Dan Hesse, Sprint CEO. “Sprint currently provides 4G LTE in 185 markets and we expect to extend that to more than 200 million people by the end of the year. With tablet plans starting at just $5 per month, our customers will appreciate the exciting features available on this new device beginning on November 1.”
The new iPad Air comes with a 9.7-inch high-resolution Retina display with a resolution of 2048 x 1536 pixels, a 64-bit A7 processor with M7 motion processor, 5MP iSight camera that is also capable of recording 1080p videos, 32.4 watt lithium polymer battery that offers almost 10 hours of battery and runs iOS 7 out of the box.
The iPad Air Cellular version starts from $629 for the 16GB model and is available with higher storage options of up to 128GB that comes with a $929 price tag.
