I've recently noticed a bombardment of television advertising for the iPad in the UK. About the same level as when it first launched. As we all know here, the iPad 2 seems set for launch within a few months (and now the iPad 3 doesn't seem that far off according to the latest rumours). The general consumer however, would not know this. Does Apple normally do this? I've never seen them promote a product so heavily when it's coming to the end of it's lifecycle.
