I know I do.
I regret giving it away in anticipation of the iPair.
Yes, I sort of do. I sold my wifi 3 and after yesterday's announcement wonder if the Air will follow in the steps of the 3 and be updated in 6 months. I may end up getting a Nexus 7 until the next iPad is released. I'll have to wait and see after they are released.
Nope! I had positioned myself to purchase an iPad last October. I thought for sure they would have adopted a smaller form factor and all we got was a lightning connector. The iPad Air was the iPad I wanted last year and wasn't going to miss it this year!
This is exactly how I feel.
Why is that ?
Huh? So you sold your iPad 2/3 back in October 2012? And been without an iPad for entire 12 months?
No. I sold my mini at ~$130 loss. Now there is a retina mini with internals 4-8x better. The only dilemma for me now is the possibility of a "pro" iPad in the near future.
I do, I was expecting wifi ac and fingerprint reader. Pretty, thin, light, gray, etc is not enough. I wish I could get my ipad4 back.
Nope, they did everything with the Air that I really wanted. TouchID and WiFi AC would have been nice, but they'd have been bonuses.
However, I do kinda regret selling my iPads last week, since I've kept going to grab an iPad, and haven't had one to use. It's surprising how much the iPad's become part of the standard workflow.
maybe you shouldn't have sold it on assumptions...
There's something to be said here about a bird in the hand being worth two in the bush.
Well, too late. I have to get pretty, thin one I can't stay without ipad, I am using my son's ipad2 for two weeks already, it is like 100 years old technology to me
I was planning on keeping my iPad 4 and adding a retina mini. After yesterdays announcement, I plan on skipping the new mini and pick up the Air.
This is the biggest update in the iPad's short history.
I guess I should really revise my answer. I'm not sure I regret selling my 32 G 3 since I did get $400 for it. Rather, I'm disappointed with the specs on the new Air.
My iPad 3 served it purpose, the Air is a solid upgrade in my opinion.
Not me. The Air appears to be the biggest generational improvement yet. Of course if you don't care about the tablet being thinner, lighter and having twice the processing power of it's predecessor then obvious it's not worth upgrading to.
If they do release a "Pro" version, it will be larger and more expensive than the current models. As someone who considers the N7 a worthy alternative (I agree it's a nice device), are you really going to be upset at missing out on a larger and more expensive iPad? I won't.
No, that is a fair point, I won't. I guess what is driving my comment, is I bought a 3 in July and then Apple turned around and released the 4 about four months later. I'm not putting it past them to do the same thing again. I've seen several Nexus 7's in good shape used for sale around $150. I figure even if I turn around and sell it later, it won't be that much of a hit. Ideally, I'd like to stay with an iPad though. I'll have to wait and see once the Airs are out in the public, reviewed, and been torn down for evaluation.
I'm not suggesting that you not wait; however the release of the 4 (8 months after the 3) was an anomaly and certainly not reflective of their normal practice. Basically, Job's rushed the 3 out with a chip that wasn't up to the performance requirements of the retina display (it tended to get really hot very easily). Cook released the 4 ahead of schedule and took the 3 off the market as soon as the A6x was available.
Yes, I'm going to have to wait and see. That is my primary concern and there is a part of me that wants the new one and the other part says, wait, see what comes out and get by with a Nexus 7 since it can be procured with much less investment.
Not at all. I have cash in hand and I am ready for the iPad Mini 2.
yes and no... sold the mini for about $170 loss but didn't realize it would take them a while to get that one out. That was my wife's ipad and she wasn't too happy with me...but I promised her it will be worth the wait...LOL....
I still don't get why people think there will be an iPad pro and in 6 mouths? Just because iPad air doesn't have touch id and a chip A7X that doesn't exist yet?
Yes, it's certainly plausible given what they did with the 3.
