Anyone upgrading from iPad 3 to iPad 4?

I bought an iPad 2 when it first came out, and was planning on skipping the 3rd generation, but won an iPad 3 through work and gave the 2 to my girlfriend.

Since I was already planning on getting a 4th gen (not this early) and my girlfriend was going to upgrade anyway (she loves the retina display on mine), I'll probably sell her iPad 2 and grab a new iPad.

Anyone else upgrading?

No. My 3gen does everything I want it to do, and I don't really feel it's lacking in speed or power for my usage pattern.

Hell no. The only reason I even got the 3 was because my daughter confiscated my iPad 2 away from me.

That was a surprise. Nope, not upgrading, I even bought AppleCare+ on my iPad 3. I'll just keep it until it doesn't run stuff anymore.

Kinda ticked though - wasn't expecting an EOL for iPad 3 for a LONG time.

I'm so pissed. 7 months? Are you serious Apple? I freaken bought the 64GB LTE version too!!!
Hurry. U can still trade in a mint iPad 64gb LTE for $660 amazon trade in. U won't be losing more than $160 plus taxes to upgrade.

I may fish around and see what I could get by selling my iPad 3, but in all likelihood I probably won't upgrade. Although it would be really nice to completely rid myself of 30-pin cables since I just got an iPhone 5.

Didn't expect that they will upgrade iPad this soon, I was waiting for the next generation to upgrade if it's thinner/lighter, which this one doesn't fit the bill, I don't see the need for faster processor, especially when the battery life is still the same.

Crossing my fingers for the 5th gen to be thinner/lighter, and metal buttons like in iPad mini in the next year. I really like the new design of iPad mini, but I am spoiled by the retina display of my iPad, so iPad mini isn't attractive to me either.

Lol no

I only upgrade if the current is too slow and doesn't work to my needs. My iPhone 3G which is 5 years old too slow now so at Xmas upgrade to iPhone 5. Same with ipad. My ipad 1 was about 3-4 years old and was getting slow plus the scree was terrible so I upgraded to ipad 3. See the pattern? All my apple products last 3 years or more if I upgrade now again it would be a waste of monies
