iPad Air Commercial Narrated By Mr. Walter White
Apple’s first iPad Air commercial compares the iPad Air to a pencil (in both size and potential); however, you will have a big surprise and forget about any pencil comparison at the moment you realize the narrator of this commercial is Bryan Cranston of “Breaking Bad” (Mr. Walter White) fame. You can watch the first iPad Air commercial here.
Walter White’s narration: “It’s an extremely simple tool, but also extremely powerful. It can be used to start a poem or finish a symphony. It has transformed the way we work, learn, create, share. It’s used to illustrate things, solve things, and think of new things. It’s used by scientists and artists and scholars and students. It’s been to classrooms, boardrooms, expeditions, even to space. And we can’t wait to see where you’ll take it next. Introducing the thinner, lighter, more powerful iPad Air”. There is also another video on Youtube, that shows a conversation between Mr. Walter White and a random Apple employee.
About the iPad Air
The newly announced iPad Air features a redesign inspired from the iPad mini. The 9.7 inch display iPad Air, is 7.5 mm thick and easier to grip thanks to the same thickness and side bezels as the iPad mini. However it doesn’t feature the same portability as the iPad mini. The new iPad Air weighs only 1 pound, and it is the lightest tablet available in its category. Thanks to its improved design, it now feels like you are holding a big screen in your hands, being very thin, just like a pencil as is emphasized in the commercial. The screen is able to display at a 2048 X 1536 resolution for a 264 pixels per inch density.
The fourth generation iPad was powered by the A6X System on Chip, featuring a dual core CPU. The iPad Air however, is powered by the new A7 System on Chip, the same one that debuted with the release of the iPhone 5S and is also being used in the second generation iPad mini. The iPad Air also features the iPhone 5S’ M7 motion co-processor (that will most likely also make an appearance in Apple’s upcoming iWatch), but it does not come with a fingerprint sensor.
The iPad Air also feature an upgraded camera sensor. Apple improved both of iPad 4’s cameras: the iPad Air features the same 5 MP rear camera, but with an images sensor that features larger pixels (similar to iPhone 5S’ camera) that allow better pictures in low light conditions and an improved 1.2 MP FaceTime HD camera that is now able to record videos in Full High Definition (1080p). Besides the new A7 SoC and the upgraded camera sensors, the iPad Air also features faster WiFi and more LTE bands on the cellular model. Regarding color variants, Apple decided not to release a gold iPad Air; instead, all iPad Air models (WiFi and WiFi with cellular) will be released in two color variants: white with silver and space grey with black.
The basic iPad Air with WiFi will start at $499 for the 16 GB model and it will get up to $799 for the 128 GB iPad Air. For an iPad Air with WiFi and LTE, you will have to pay $629 for the 16 GB model and up to $929 for 128 GB WiFi and LTE iPad Air.
