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!
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.
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.
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.
