How would you react if iPad 5 really was released in March?

Unlikely but how would you react?

I would be surprised, but I'd basically shrug as well.

Shrug, since I am not the in market for one. If that was the case, I'd definitely treat whatever iPad I might buy next like my iPhone - ignore any subsequent releases after the generation I purchase.

Don't have to worry since there won't be any new iPads until the fall. Case closed.

nothing my ipad 3 runs smoothly il get another tablet when this one can no longer suffice to apps which will be about 4 years time, making it worth 100 per year of use.

You don't know that. While I agree it is unlikely, my thoughts, and yours, are not yet fact.

Apple does what Apple wants.

Not really. They made it optional and they don't build them, but stylus support of some level has always been in the devices. Sure it's not the super pressure sensitive stuff that some folks want but those folks are a minority compared to the much larger group that is just fine with what support there is.

There is no stylus support. The fact that you can use a stylus is a happy accident due to the type of screen used. It was not in any way intentional by Apple.

I'd read about it with my typical nerdy fashion.
Then shrug and move on to next news item..

IPad 3 is all I need. Fast, light weight, brilliant retina lcd, mind blowing multi day battery life, and with 32gb... is plenty of storage.

I cant imagine them doing anything remotely interesting.

Earlier this morning at home just checked battery, was thinking I cant remember when last I plugged in, pulled from my photostream

I would take my iPad 4 and smash it to bits in front of an Apple store. That will teach them to mess with a consumer.

I would file a lawsuit against Apple.

They can't go releasing updated products willy nilly, whenever they feel like it. Once I buy my iPad or iPhone, the next release should be a minimum of 2 years away.

I'm joking, by the way.

No one is forcing you to buy or upgrade to the newest model every time.

It seems like I am one of those few people believing, both the 5th Gen iPad & 2nd Gen iPad mini will launch March-April.

After reading all of the posts in this thread I realized that the thread title should have been "How would you react if someone made another stupid thread about an iPad being released in March?"

I'd shart myself from jumping up and down with excitement. Then wipe my a$$ with the ipad 3 and go get the 5.

I'd buy one immediately. I have a three. I tried the iPad 4 and liked the speed so I guess the five will be even better.

It wouldn't impact me what so ever. The same can be said if Apple released an iPad mini retina model. I'm happy with what I have now and I'm not going to be bothered by any future products regardless of when they're released.

I bought 2 of the 64GB iPad 4's, in case I needed more space. Now that the 128 GB iPad 4 is coming out, I'm super pissed!!!!
