When you talk about temperatures in Tokyo you should always say where in Tokyo. I live in Tokyo, and 1.4 degrees is far from the coldest I experienced this winter.

This amount is so amazing that I immediately looked for a Japanese source to confirm it, but could not find any? Does someone has a link?

Smithinjapan, maybe you missed its purpose, this has nothing to do with an iPad, potential users won't care about how it looks.
