Okay, so I am partially confused. I'm one of those people who always upgrades to the newer generation of most Apple products. I purchased the iPad 3 when it was released (was it March sometime?). I went to apple's website to look at the new iPad page and I came to this. http://www.apple.com/ipad/compare/ Now, for whatever reason Apple seems to have strayed away from the numerical naming of iPad devices (much to my confusion). From what I see, Apple has all together removed the iPad 3 from production and now only sells the iPad 2 as the predecessor to the iPad 4. So a product that isn't even 6 months old has already been discontinued? This kind of makes me angry. Especially with my purchase. I wonder what the ramifications of this decision will be when it comes to repairs on iPad 3? Perhaps a damaged unit will get replaced with the next gen. iPad 4? I am just confused as to why Apple would stop making the iPad 3, but continue selling the iPad 2 when the iPad 3 is clearly better than the iPad 2. The only reason why I could see them discontinuing the iPad 3, and instead push the iPad 2 is because the iPad 2 is probably cheaper to produce than the iPad 3. Apple wouldn't make as much money off of selling iPad 3's at the current discounted rate that the iPad 2 is now listed at. I was really excited for today in regards to the iPad mini announcement. I feel that Apple announced some great upgrades for the mac side of things, but how they handled this whole iPad situation has left me somewhat disappointed.
