Smart offers iPad Air starting at PHP 1,499 a month

Smart announced its latest offering: iPad Air with LTE starting at PHP 1,499 per month (w/ initial cash out of PHP 5,000.00). Oh noes, too many choices! Do you get the iPad mini or the iPad Air? Both of these come with crisp Retina display with the only noticeable difference being the size — the iPad mini has 7.9 of screen real estate while the iPad Air has 9.7 inches.

If you’re looking for something more pocketable, get the former. If you’re meticulous, the iPad mini has a denser pixel per inch ratio because it’s obviously smaller. The main advantage of the ipad Air? It’s bigger. Without the weight. If you owned a first or second generation iPad before the dawn of the mini and wish to keep the size while mitigating weight, the Air is your obvious choice.
