With over 1,100 votes from readers, our latest poll—Now that the dust has settled, which of the new iPad models do you prefer?—has now ended. With both the iPad Air and iPad mini with Retina Display available, we wanted to know which device our readers thought was the better of the two.

The overall majority of respondents clearly preferred the iPad Air, garnering fifty-four percent of the vote. Twenty-seven percent chose the iPad mini with Retina Display as their favourite, while fifteen percent of readers found both devices equally appealing. The remaining four percent of the responses came from those who didn’t really like either of the new iPad models.

In this week’s poll we’re curious to know whether you use a screen protector or film with your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch? If so, are you concerned primarily with protection from scratches or dirt or is it more for reducing the glare. If not, do you simply not feel the need for one or do you avoid films because of price or the impact on screen visibility? Our latest poll Do you use a screen protector or film on your iPhone or iPad? lets you have your say. As always, you can find the iLounge Poll in the left-hand column of the main iLounge.com homepage. Cast your vote today!
