New hardware will be amazing, its the software which I am anxious to see.

I have an iPad 2 I still love it but I will upgrade it when new iPad comes out because I am more concerned about iOS update/upgrade might not work with 512 ram.
That is OK to make fun of my poor english grammars just because you are bullying deaf people.

Have iPad 3 and 4.

My 2.5 year old has the iPad 4. I may give iPad 3 to 8 month old. She's started to interact more with it. I currently use the LTE iPad 3.

If iPad 5/iPad mini 2 is released in 5 months than my 8 month will be older so I could justify buying new iPad for myself.

iPads are very mature products. Hard to justify another purchase when I have owned all 4 iPads. I returned the ipad mini unopened after playing with it in the store the first day.

No. My mini is doing fine. No reason to upgrade quite yet. The A5 is holding up rather well and while the screen is sub par these days, it does ok for what I primarily use it far. Plus the batter is great. I'm at 3 days.

I also was saying if both my kids take the 2 current iPads i own. That's the really only way I could justify buying another iPad.

I had a iPad 2 32gb and got the 4 a month ago - also just won a Kindle Fire HD 7" a month ago - now I wish I hadn't opened it and sold it to buy a mini - it has a great (I mean great) screen and superior sound - but it is really small - the Mini is an inch bigger and I think that counts for something... I will probably look at the Mini if it gets Retina - but as for switching out my 4? Nah - I'll probably wait until the 6 - I like the even numbered iPads. It seems like they always get it right with the 2nd iteration.

the title is a bit off. it should be how many iPad 4 owners. not iPad owners.

remember, not all iPad owners have 4s. I'm still rocking a two and for me it's a no brainier. if you have a four you really don't need the next one unless the new form factor will dramatically change things for you.

Nope. Upgraded from 1 to 3 in January and from 3 to 4 last weekend. I'm good for at least a year. (Unless a retina Mini tempts me.)

I bought my iPad 3 at launch, its becoming my most favourite tech device...thats mainly down to the fact that its jailbroken so much possibilities...

So my answer is, No. I would not to want to upgrade to the iPad 5, unless there is a significant weight drop and the OS is improved A LOT, where as I don't need to jailbreak ...fat chance on the latter
