The iPad Air is 3G compatible, which is unusual. Most of the other tablet computers of this age and spec are not 3G compatible.
If you want a tablet computer that is 3G compatible then you might also want to look at the Apple iPad Mini (2nd gen)[plb_2144809_price].

The average internal storage capacity of tablets of a comparable type and age to the iPad Air is 49GB, and the internal storage capacity range from 8GB to 130GB. With an internal storage capacity of 128 gigabytes, the iPad Air has a very large internal storage capacity compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been around for a similar time to the iPad Air.
Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity
The average total storage capacity of tablet computers of a comparable age and type to the iPad Air is 56GB, and the total storage capacities range from 16GB to 130GB. The iPad Air has one of the bigger total storage capacities (128 gigabytes) amongst A7 processor tablets of this age.

Very Short Browsing Time
The iPad Air has a fairly short browsing time (only 9 hours) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been around for a similar time to the iPad Air. The average browsing time of A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for around the same time as the iPad Air is 9.4h.
5 Other reasons to consider the Apple iPad Air
Released Over Two Years Ago
It was over two years ago when Apple released the iPad Air.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The iPad Air has a fairly standard processor clock speed (1.3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other A7 processor tablets that have been on the market for a similar time to the iPad Air.
We compared this tablet computer to all the other 1.3GHz processor clock speed tablet computers and we think the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_2519374_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.
Average Rear Camera Resolution
The iPad Air has a relatively average rear camera resolution (5 megapixels) compared to most of the other comparable spec tablet computers that were launched around the same time as the iPad Air.
+3 Other reasons
Two Processor Cores
The iPad Air is a two processor core tablet computer which is average compared to the other 25 A7 processor tablets that were released around the same time as the iPad Air that we have assessed the number of processor cores of.
We compared all the other 2 processor core tablets to this tablet and we think because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price] is also worth considering.
If this tablet computer has too few processor cores then you might want to look at the Gigaset QV830[plb_2981383_price] (4 processor cores).
Average Screen Size
The iPad Air has a relatively average screen size (7.9 inches) compared to most of the other tablets that were launched around the same time as the iPad Air.
There are a number of alternative 7.9" tablet computers currently available which you might also want to consider including because of it's better review score, the Apple iPad Mini (3rd gen)[plb_1847201_price].
If you would prefer a tablet with a larger screen size then you might want to look at the Gigaset QV830[plb_2981383_price] (8"), or the Apple iPad Air[plb_2031190_price] (9.7").
