Let's go back in time. September: New iPhone. Iphone 5. Completely redesigned, thinner, lighter brand new lightning charger port, polished aluminum bezel etc. etc. etc. Oct ~ Nov: iPad Mini. Thin, light, polished bezel, lightning port. iPad 4. Same old, heavy and bulky design as iPad 2, brand new lightning port and a faster processor. My question is since they had time to redesign the iPhone and create the iPad Mini, why couldn't they redesign the iPad 4? Yeah, I'm sure they'll redesign it in 2013, making it lighter, thinner etc. but they could have done it with the iPad 4. It sucks thinking my $100 Logitech Ultrathin Keyboard Cover will become obsolete as well as my iSkin $100 folio case. I'm pretty sure they have designs laid out for the next 10 years but each year they slowly implement something "new" to justify the "new" in the "new iPad" and brainwash the masses with how great the "new" device is and mention nothing good about the old one except praising how good the new is compared to the old model.
