Do you think Apple will release the next generation iPad in less than 12 months? With hindsight being 20/20, it looked like the iPad 3rd gen was a test run for retina displays and then they hammered it down with the A6X. I'm wondering if the same thing is happening here with the Air. They have the 64bit kernel now out in the wild with a bunch of 64 bit binaries in iWork & iLife and stock apps. I didn't really care about the 1GB of RAM until I got the Air and it just feels wrong with the amount of crashing. I know there's a lot of talk about it just being iOS 7, but iOS 7 in 32 bit and 64 bit are two vastly different animals. As the Air is spec'd to run iOS 7 full bore (not like a 3rd gen or older iPhone) and in 64 bit, and with that amount of pixels to push, I wonder if this is just a very transitional piece of hardware in a longer development cycle. I also wonder what the value will be as far as re-sale goes if the platform changes in a way that's significant (like 2GB of RAM, 32GB storage baseline, touch ID). Maybe they plan to replace the Macbook Air with the iPad Air down the road and a more robust iPad could exists at a higher price point?
