    Well, crap. That was going to be my xmas present. Too early to speculate as to potential changes in the next full sized version?

    I wouldn't rule it out. If anything it will probably be minor. Lightning connector and fix whatever heat/charging issues there are.

    Wouldn't switching to a lightning connector require a major redesign of the internal components?

    I don't see any updates happening, as already said, until March. We dont know anything for 100%, but there are some highly probable/educated guesses we can make on what to expect:
    A6 chip
    Lightening Connector
    4G
    Thinner/Lighter (most likely due to better display technology)

    Definitely possible. The iPad 2 was silently refreshed with a more power-efficient processor which gives longer battery life.

    I honestly don't see how they can NOT update it with Christmas right around the corner.

    That only makes sense if it's something they always do, which I don't believe it is. Besides, I'd think it is getting too close to their normal "new and improved" iPad release now.

    The iPad 2 refresh was in it's 2nd year after the iPad 3 was released. I doubt we'll see an iPad 3 refresh until the iPad 4 is out.

    ipad 4 question

    I have ipad 1 and am thinking of upgrading. Any rumors about the ipad 4 as to when it might be released? The reason I ask is should I be patient and wait for the new one or should I buy ipad 3?

    What is the difference between the iphone 5 4G LTE and the ipad 3 4G? Sorry about all the questions but I am an Apple newbie!
