free operating system

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?

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.

More Apple Catchup

Last gen Kindle (Kindle HD) had MIMO; current Kindle HDX is lighter (13.2 oz), and probably faster (2.2GHz quad core).  I guess the big Apple advance is 64-bits.
