Weights And Measures
With its 12.2-inch panel, Samsung's device measures 11.6 inches long and 8 inches wide. Apple's device and its 9.7-inch LCD is 9.4 inches long and 6.6 inches wide. But both are wafer-thin, separated by just two hundredths of an inch. Galaxy Note PRO 12.2 spreads the micrometer to 0.31 inches, and iPad Air opens it to 0.29. In terms of weight, Samsung's 12-incher tips the scales at 1.67 pounds, a super-lightweight in most anybody's book -- except that of Apple, of course, which boasts a featherweight maximum of just 1.05 pounds with Wi-Fi and cellular radios.
