Could the iPad be the way of the iPhone and have an iPad 2S?
Think I would be pissed.
I don't think so.
I think that they do the iPhone like this because contracts are usually 2 years so they do a major redesign every 2 years then a spec,performance, camera, IOS bump every other year.
and also the iPad, does not have a contract so yeah
With Apple anything is possible, but I'm with Wrinkster, it's very unlikely.
The iPad sales model is closer to the iPod Touch than the iPhone. I figure eventually they'll even drop the number from the name of the iPad and it'll just be named like the iPod Touch is, ex: "iPad (4th generation)".
But look at the iPod touch, it's followed the same patern as the iPhone over the years obviously the iPod doesn't have a contract.
And worse, this year it was barely even upgraded!
Why? is someone forcing you to buy the next release regardless of what it is?
I don't think Apple felt the pressure to have a major upgrade of the iPod touch this year due to lack of competition. Yes, there's other alternatives, but quite frankly the iPod touch is a bargain at $199 with the A4 processor, camera, high res display, etc. Perhaps next year it'll have a nice upgrade that'll catch it up to the iPhone 4S or maybe the next iteration.
Why would you be pissed?
What difference does it make what they call it?
Besides both S upgrades on the iPhones were great upgrades. I don't care what anyone says.
Internal wise they were the biggest bump in performance of the iPhones.
It's cause I usually like to keep up to date with my products as many others do here. Some of us like to have a significant product upgrade instead of adding little additional features and basically calling it a 0.x update and then having to wait another year for a fresh product. I like to get new gear. Don't know what's so hard to understand. Some of us like to get more bang for our buck. Simple as that. Thread crap elsewhere.
Times have changed and Apple has adapted. It's impossible to predict what may happen next. Having broken out of their old somewhat consistent patterns it's a more interesting Apple today.
