The ‘iPad’ name is near synonymous with ‘tablet’. Chances are your grandmother would call any tablet an ‘iPad’ if you showed it to her. It’s the product that started a tech revolution, and there’s never been a better version than the iPad Air. It’s slimmer than ever, lighter than ever and more powerful than ever. Quite simply, it’s everything we’ve come to expect from Apple, and we couldn’t be happier. Until the back end of this year, there wasn’t an Android tablet that could compete in the design and performance stakes, and there’s still nothing that can match it for sheer popularity. • Similar models the latest impossibly slim waterproof sony xperia z3 compact android tablet.
