Having skipped ipad 4 I am eager to own an ipad 5 when its announced. I miss that big product launch and opening a shiny new ipad. Owning an IOS gadget for more than a year makes it feel old and dull.

I reckon we will see the iPad 5 with the iPad Mini form factor. Should be interesting!

I have an iPad 3 and am not planning on upgrading as I only use it for video and occasional web browsing. But, I might nudge the girlfriend to pick one up :p

I have an iPad 4 that I love so for now I'm not excited about the iPad 5. That will probably change when it comes out however.

Depends on the specs, the size and weight of the Mini 2. I may be more excited about it for the price than the 5. :D

Pretty excited hoping it delivers (in terms of new hardware, software and an overall upgrade)

Looking forward to both this and the Mini. I have started typing up all my notes for university so hoping to get an iPad to take to class for my 2nd year in September, its a pain reading them on the iPhone!

Well if you use the iPad like me (99.99% web browsing), you wouldn't really give a damn. My iPad does what I want it do, and it does it perfectly

I sure am. I can't wait. Although I have to say the mini is looking pretty good too. So if they bring out the 5 as a new form factor, and bring out a retina mini, I will have a hard time choosing which I go with.

Excited about getting the ipad 5...Nope

Returned my iPad 3 since it had the back facing speakers (Away from user) which were low, and hard for me to hear well. iPad 4 same way. Now, if Apple gets it right with the iPad 5, and has the user facing stereo speakers, than I'm in. :D

We’re all plenty familiar with the iPad by now, so Steve may hold off until closer to launch to debut the new tablet.

I recently sold my iPad 3 and I often miss it. However, I am more excited about the possibility of a Mini with retina. It's already a painful wait, and if it the Mini doesn't get retina this year, I'll probably buy an iPad 5.
