Maybe they thought the iPad3 owners wouldn't notice

As I said elsewhere though, the nature of iOS development (gaming wise) has proven that due to older devices being supported (3GS is STILL catered for on the iPhone platform) it takes a little more time for the latest device/chip to peak.

Look at Infinity Blade II on iPhone 4 and 4S. That game was supposed to be the 4S showpiece, but other than a smoother frame rate and some "God ray" lighting effects, both versions looked identical to the naked eye. Fast forward to now, a year later, and compare the recent releases like NFS Most Wanted on the 4 and 4S and the difference is night and day in terms of visual effects.

In basic iOS navigation though, other than stock apps opening a half second or so sooner, there's zero difference. iOS 7 though will no doubt change things on that count.

What I don't get is that the some of the very same people who slate those who moan about not having "the latest and greatest" turn into condescending, elitist, placebo ridden fools the second they get the latest and greatest themselves.

End of the day, there's people out there without homes, power, and loved ones due to a superstorm and we're here debating the frame rate of a tablet.
You dont have to be here debating the frame rate of a tablet. There will always be people who are hungry or are facing some kind of hardship. In theory there is never a good time to discuss the performance of an electronic device you paid for. Why are you here again?

Very happy with the iPad 4 64 GB it is very fast, excellent display, lightning connector, cool to the touch even under intense use, the new video processing unit will be a plus, web use is faster overall... a solid buy moving from my iPad 2.
