AnandTech: iPad Air As Hotspot

Anand Lal Shimpi once again put the iPad Air's battery to the test by leaving it set up as a personal hotspot, and just like the 4th Gen iPad before it, the battery is more impressive than you can imagine:

A total of 24.08 hours and over 8GB of transfers later, the iPad Air finally died. Just like last time, you'll likely burn through your monthly data allotment before you run out of power.

I've never owned one of the network-ready iPads, but I'm starting to think it would be downright foolish to buy my next one without LTE built in. I can't wait to learn how the iPad Mini with Retina fares.
