Apple iPad Air bagged the Best Mobile Tablet award during the 19th Global Mobile Awards held at the GSMA Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The 2014 Mobile Awards was hosted by British actor, writer, presenter and comedian James Corden.
John Hoffman, CEO of GSMA Ltd., revealed that there were 680 entries for the Mobile Awards 2014 divided into six categories that include The Connected Life Awards, Best Mobile Services, Social & Economic Development, Apps of the Year, Best Mobile Handsets & Devices and Best Mobile Technology.
Below is a statement by the Mobile Awards‘ posted on their official website explaining how they picked iPad Air as the Best Mobile Tablet.
Precision-engineered to weigh just one pound, iPad Air is 20 percent thinner and 28 percent lighter than the fourth generation iPad, and with a 43 percent narrower bezel the borders of iPad Air are dramatically thinner. iPad Air’s Retina display makes web pages, text, images and video look incredibly sharp and realistic, and the new power-efficient A7 chip allows the battery to be even smaller, helping reduce the overall volume by 24 percent from the previous generation while doubling its performance and maintaining its up to 10-hour battery life.
The judges commented that “The iPad Air packs class-leading performance in an attractive and svelte frame, while its ecosystem has an undisputed advantage in the number of format-optimized apps.”
iPad Air, Apple’s latest tweak on its full size tablet, was released last November 2013.
According to reports, iPad Air contributed to a record-breaking iPad sales of 26 million during the first quarter of its release.
