Maybe. But look at all the devices this covers..TC AE AEBS etc. etc. not to mention the IOS side of things. I'm pretty happy with the performance of my network, and the TC is a relative newbie...I don't want to think about buying new ones for a while.

The other major factor ( Or maybe your question should be) Will we see it in the ipad3?
