I don't understand it. Usually when a new iPad is introduced there is a lot of talk about having one on the way, and of course what new tech it has. I have to admit I was happy to see the iPad Mini introduced, but soon realized the iPad4 was a far better replacement for my iPad2 than the iPad Mini. Size matters Is there some kind of "New Orleans Funeral" going on here for iPad3 owners? I'm just hoping the subdued atmosphere on the forum will pick up when people get their hands on the iPad4. Having said that I do understand that many probably wouldn't be happy with a 7 month upgrade from the 3 to the 4. But having kept the iPad2 when the iPad3 was introduced just shows me we are all just on different buying cycles dependent on need and of course $$$$. Eventually most people will upgrade. In my case my kids love to get the hand-me-downs for both iPhones and iPads. I hope the iPad4 party here will start soon. iPad3 owners see you at the iPad5 party!
