High Fives and cheers at the iPad air launch. SOUNDBITE: RAMI SHAMAS, APPLE CUSTOMER (ENGLISH) SAYING: "I've been waiting from 6pm. It was really fun and hard, but I like that I'm here now and I'm the first one. I was dreaming about this and this happened!" Big things are expected of the lighter thinner tablet. Reviews have been really good. Including the one from CNET. Senior Editor Scott Stein: SOUNDBITE: SCOTT STEIN, SENIOR EDITOR, CNET (ENGLISH) SAYING: "A lot of other people can't compete in providing something with that performance and that design and that platform support. You really look at the smaller tablets- I think is where you have a question of do you go budget? And you have a lot of competing people like that. You look at the iPad mini but in the large iPad that $500 price even years later I think that is still really tough to beat. " REPORTER BRIDGE: BOBBI REBELL, REUTERS REPORTER (ENGLISH) SAYING: And that's why he thinks people will pay up. For a full size tablet- the iPad Air is not even all that much more expensive than rival devices from from Amazon, Microsoft and Samsung. But that's the full size world- overall when it comes to tablets- who is Apple's enemy #1? SOUNDBITE: SCOTT STEIN, SENIOR EDITOR, CNET (ENGLISH) SAYING: "I think its Android. I think certainly there is a huge Android landscape out there but I think that right now the way that the Android tablet landscape is set up is that a lot of it is about consumption- that Google play, and creating a usable multipurpose reading, video playing device vs. something that you may be doing a ton of work on. " Apple's answer to the smaller rivals- The new ipad mini with retina display goes on sale later this month.
