Should I buy an iPad Air as a Christmas present now or wait for the Air 2?

    I've seen a few blog articles touting October 2014 for the release of the new iPad Air (Air 2?) but a number of them suggest the price point will be very similar to the current model, so I'm wondering if it is worth waiting (and possibly missing out on getting one at all) or buying one now so that I'm certain of getting one?

    how much money do you want to spend? I can't see it being cheaper than the original but it depends of who you are getting it for and if you want to be seen to follow trends... personally I prefer the android system it is your money to burn...

    I guess it depends if they keep the Air 1 as a cheaper option or not, which all depends on if it's a little upgrade like the new phones or a major upgrade they announce.

    TBH I like the current iPad Air and aside from CPU, screen and RAM changes I don't expect the new one to be radically different; so I'm really wondering if the price of the current one will drop before Christmas? (I want to buy it as a present for someone who already has an iPhone and lots of content on iStore/iCloud or whatever i it is called so it's got to be an iPad).
