@Tariq: I don't think any of the tablets can match the quality that Apple iPads do have right now at least. There is innovation behind ipads when you compare with others. Something new out of the box is being implemented most of the time
In my opinion the Yoga tablet might be a better option compared to ipad air if you want to get some work done on a tablet. You can easily add a keyboard to it as well. The new Lenovo Yoga, which is better priced and in the long run may be better for productivity. But having said all that, I still believe the sales of ipad air will be greater and it will take some time before companies like Lenovo can take over apple's customers.
Apple has one advantage over its competitors and that is loyalty from its customers. Apple has a major hold over the US market when it comes to laptops and tablets. Even though competitors like Lenovo are on a rise, and may provide a good challenge to break this apple market dominance. The Lenovo's new yoga pad has a lower price compared to ipad air ($299 vs $499). True, the Yoga's specs don't match the iPad Air's when it comes to the screen and processor. But for getting work done, rather than watching videos or playing games, those specs don't matter much. Also the yoga has 18 hours running time battery compared to ipad's 10 hours.
It seems like a real piece of art with the added feature but what the market report says is that APPLE is loosing on there profit then previous years, although the sales are still there but i guess the intense competition is hindering, like BLACK BERRY ETC
