There's so many direction I can go with this and I think I will go with all of them. Because it's fun to speculate about Apple products and how this will impact mobile warriors.
First, I've got a late-2010 Macbook Air, the original iPad, iPad 4th gen, and an assortment of iPhones and iPods. I'm just an Apple fan like that. In general, I'm a huge mobile fan. Got Google and Microsoft gears too. But Apple has been more fun to talk about because of its history and secrecy.
So, imagine the surprised looks on many people's faces, those at the live Apple event, those watching them on their Apple gears, and those following the live blogs, when Apple announced the "iPad 5" will be called the "iPad Air".
So then I got to thinking almost immediately once the shock wore off. Air? Doesn't Apple already have a successful product called the Macbook Air? Two of them if I remember correctly.
So, it's Air versus Air. iPad versus Macbook. Is Apple trying to tell us something?
