The article says that you get a free operating system with this device.  When did they ever sell a device without an operating system?

Thanks for your comment. The Mavericks OS news is separate from the iPad and computer news.What Apple announced today was: (1) its new Mavericks OS for its computers/laptops, and that (2) Apple would no longer be charging its customers to upgrade to the new OS, for which they previously would have had to pay. Obviously if buying a new computer or any Apple device, you'll get the OS on the device (which means the OS cost is built into the cost of the computer).

Seems like a good move on Apple's part. Many other news websites today covered this new free upgrade policy; it's not so important here on EE Times but it is an interesting move that should make customers happy.

It will be interesting to see how the 64-bit shift unfolds and wheher Apple gets any lift from being early into it.

It's probably just me, but I thought by now Apple had already offered iPad with MIMO. They didn't until now? I am kind of surprised... Doesn't Kindle HD already come with it?

its Free OS upgrade to OS X 10.9 for existing devices. Normally they charge 20$ for new OS for previous gen macbooks

This super-thin and light iPad and iPad Mini with their super  hi-rez displays should prove very popular among Apple devotees, even at their premium price, and the free iLife and iWorks just sweeten the pot.

Larger Retina Screen?

I don't understand the statement about "larger Retina screen" because the iPad Air has a 9.7" screen, the same size as the iPad 4. Yes, the iPad mini now has more pixels, but also the same screen size.
