I am not an owner of an iPad Air, but I managed to get my hands on one. What a wonderful device! I sure wished I had one! It was a really powerful device. So. The question is, even though the iPad Air is a very powerful device, will you even bother upgrading when a new iPad is release? For me though, if I had one I would not bother getting one. The iPad Air is a very powerful device. Its more than enough for me.
