WINNIPEG, Canada, July 31, 2014 /CNW/ - MTS today announced that iPad
Air with Wi-Fi + Cellular and iPad mini with Retina display with Wi-Fi
+ Cellular are now available in Manitoba. MTS is offering these new
iPads with a range of attractive data plans that allow customers to
connect to its fast 4G LTE network with speeds up to 150 Mbps.
iPad Air features a stunning 9.7-inch Retina display in a new thinner
and lighter design. 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 narrower bezel the borders of iPad Air are
dramatically thinner - making content even more immersive. iPad mini
with Retina display brings all the pixels from the 9.7-inch iPad to its
7.9-inch screen, delivering razor sharp text and detail in the same
amazingly thin and light design. The new iPads feature the powerful and
power-efficient Apple-designed A7 chip with 64-bit desktop-class
architecture, ultrafast wireless with faster built-in Wi-Fi and
expanded LTE cellular connectivity, and the newly-designed iOS 7
featuring hundreds of great new features.
