The first reviews of the iPad Air are coming in. It appears that benchmarking texts are showing a 80% increase over last year’s iPad and a 5 fold increase over the iPad 2 (which is still for sale.)
Walt Mossberg, [Wall Street Journal](http://online.wsj.com/news/articles/SB10001424052702303471004579165672708986000): “It is the best tablet I’ve ever reviewed.”
Jim Darylmple, [The Loop](http://www.loopinsight.com/2013/10/29/review-ipad-air/): “It’s very hard to describe how good the iPad Air feels in your hand without actually picking one up. It’s kind of like the first time you saw a Retina display for the first time—shock.”
