Back in March then I think everyone can admit that it was pretty difficult to have a rational conversation about the iPad name. But with several months of reality to let the change settle in (and tempers to settle down) then I'm curious what everything thinks now. - The iPhone brand didnt drop the numbering system as expected - The iPad brand is supposedly expanding - "the new iPad", "the iPad" or "the iPad (2012)" name didnt really stick with tech enthusiasts or the general public - Searching for "iPad" related info/merchandise yielded mixed results since it was no longer a specific search item For me personally then I have to be on the side that hopes Apple goes back to numbering just for the simplicity. If my grandma is calling it the iPad 3 then I just dont see how continuing to call each annual model "The New iPad" every year. But how about you? Does it still upset you when people call it the iPad 3? Do you want them to go back to numbers like with the iPhone? Do you think next years model should also be called "The new iPad"?
