Personally, I am not too concerned with the iPad 4. I got the 3 on launch day and have been happy with it (after one exchange). Like others have said, it still does everything it did on Tuesday morning. I have been looking at either the Otterbox or the Survivor. Both retail (from the manufacturer) for between $70 and $90. I had found them on Amazon for between $50 and $70. Yesteday I checked Amazon and both can be had new for under $55 and used for as low at $20. For those of us keeping the 3, I see this as a benefit. I would love to have the newest device at all time, but I am content with having what I have and I know I am fortunate to have them.
