iPad Air and iOS 7.
Beautiful design. Beautifully integrated.
iOS 7 was designed to take advantage of 64-bit architecture. So it’s every bit as advanced as the iPad Air it runs on. And with new features like smarter multitasking, Control Center, and AirDrop, iOS 7 makes the experience of using iPad Air even more beautiful and simple. Because iOS 7 and iPad Air weren’t just designed to work together, they were designed to enhance one another.
iPad Air Smart Cover and Smart Case.
Make iPad Air even more brilliant.
The redesigned Smart Cover and Smart Case are a perfect fit for iPad Air. They automatically wake it when opened and put it to sleep when closed. They also fold to create a great stand for reading, viewing, and typing. And they come in a whole range of colors. So they don’t just work smart, they look smart.(4)

Set up: very easy to set up. Almost a plug-and-play thing going on here. There are next to no written instructions but the onscreen set up guides you pretty well. But I think it helps if you are already IT literature otherwise expect some teething troubles.
Looks: very pretty and neat. It's lovely to handle. Be sure to buy a cover for it however if you want to keep the looks.
Screen: the brightness can be easily adjusted and there isn't too much glare. A screen protector does need to be purchased separately and is advised. You can use your fingers to type onto a virtual keyboard which pops up on screen but a e-pen is also a good idea if you have large fingers.
Internet connectivity: quick and fast. Have used this in a few hotels now without any problems.
Software: comes preloaded with the basics. But things like Word can easily be downloaded from the apple store. I wasn't thrilled by Apple's version of this, but then Microsoft aren't going to make something perfect for Apple are they?
I haven't used this for playing games so I'm not sure how that shapes up, but overall four or so months in I am so glad I bought this. Life really would have been more difficult without it! Worth every penny.
With an iPad, you can do pretty much anything you can do on a laptop/Desktop computer. With the added benefit of it being much more portable.

✓ Listen to the radio / music – either by streaming music from the internet or playing music stored locally on your iPad
*** What are the cons? ***
- Not all printers are 100% compatible with iPads – ideally you will need a printer that supports AirPrint. However this is becoming more of a standard feature with newer printers.Read more ›
You can see my review of the iPad above.
And I have to say there's just no comparison with other tablets - yes some others have very good screens now, powerful processers etc etc but nothing else just works seemlessly like the iPad. What matters is the experience using it and here Apple is way ahead. By the way I tried out a Galaxy Note Pro 12.2 in John Lewis the other day and sorry apart from a bigger screen the user experience is just poor compared to an iPad.
There is the argument over cost and yes the iPad is expensive but considering the alternatives (Note Pro, Tablet Pro, Sony Tablet Z etc) aren't much cheaper I think it's a no-brainer. Oh and so far to put on all the apps I need day to day from the App store has cost me a whole £3.68!
On the hardware front it's difficult to fault - the screen is perfect and it feels just right for weight. I've put a Knomo case on it to protect it anyway as think if you spend nearly £500 on a device leaving it open to knocks is crazy. No expandable storage is why I went 32GB and yes an extra £80 for 16GB extra is a rip-off but total price is still not significantly more expensive than competitors.
The biggest difference between the iPad and Android tablets is the apps - not numbers as who cares if you've got 1 Billion or 500 million apps - but the difference in quality and usability. A great example of this is my 72 year old mother can use the iPad apps without any help at all but on Android she struggles. The ecosystem for Apple is miles ahead here.Read more ›
