Yes and they know people don't have the disposable income to release iPad mini iPhone and large iPad all within months of each other

What the heck is a stopgap? You know, given I don't have even half a brain.

What, because 6 months was too long to wait? Or 6 months is just enough time to devalue people's current investment in the iPad? (which they will do again with a March release - think about it, please!)

If you don't need the ipad now then wait for the 5. If you NEED to have an ipad now then just get the 4. It will still be a great device even if the 5 comes out in a few months.

It always bothers me when someone asks this question. Should I wait for the next one? If you have to ask, then you should. However, realize that there will always be something better coming down the pike in just a few months.

As far as is having an ipad mini, and an ipad redundant? I would say a bit.
I use my mini in the car, plane, or sitting on the couch. I use my ipad for work. Typing proposals to customers, entering orders, emailing pictures etc...
Could I get by with just one or the other? probably, but I am glad I do not have to.
