    One reason some people buy the LTE version, even if they never activate a data plan, is for the GPS capability. That's why I purchased a WiFi + cellular iPad 3 last spring.

    That is a good reason to go with the Cellular model I agree especially if you dont have in built sat nav or any device like tom tom already.. it can be very handy

    The cellular version has had a GPS chip from the time the iPad 1 was released in 2010.

    is anyone aware of any sites that have reviewed and compared the speed difference between the iPad air and the iPad for? I'm not sure little bit of lighter weight is good enough reason to upgrade on its own.

    I'm pretty sure those articles haven't been written yet, given that the Air is not to be released until November 1.

    So, the only thing I can suggest is to wait until more people have the iPad Air in their hands - then see the articles that come out.

    On paper (or, according to the stats shown in the Apple presentation), it should be pretty fast. But, it may very we'll be all relative.

    Only thing I can suggest is to hang in there and wait for the reviews.

    I will be going from non retina Ipad2 to Ipad Air. I think for me this is a significant improvement worth the upgrade.
