iPad 4 won't be out until next spring. However, there may be a ~7" iPad later this year if rumor is correct.

As the previous poster mentioned the 4 won't be out until Spring of next year. If you need one now buy the iPad 3 or a refurb iPad 2.

I have a 1 and 3 and the difference is vast. The 3 as everyone knows has the Retina screen superfast processor and quality camera. I don't know what will be included in the next model but I am sure it will be minor. The 3 has way surpassed my expectations and doubt if I will look to update untill a big leap In tech.


If its in stock it's obsolete.

The CPU in both the iPad 2 and 3 are the same. The A5X in the iPad 3 is there just to support the higher resolution of the retina display. Performance wise it's a wash between the iPad 2 and 3.
