    Guys... give iPad 4th generation some love.

    This forum is now swamped with iPad mini-me and not much about the new new iPad...

    Don't know... ask iPad 4 or Apple!

    Based on the biased sample of the MacRumors forum... looks like iPad mini will sell out quick and iPad 4 will disappoint.

    Honestly if the mini works out, I will probably not buy another full size iPad in the foreseeable future.

    But then again, when people do that, it will hurt Apple's revenue, their profit will likely to be higher anyhow (higher margin on the mini).

    iPad 4 isn't big of a deal that's why. No one with iPad 3 it's going to upgrade to that.

    They aren't actually calling it the iPad 4 are they?

    Uh.. False.

    "Some 140,000 devices were put up for sale on Gazelle.com Tuesday – a 700% spike from the day before, says Anthony Scarsella, chief gadget officer at the site. Half of that increase occurred in the hours just before the announcement, he says – and the most common model put up for sale was the “new iPad” released just six months ago..."

    I'm curious how the so-called 'heat-issue' is resolved in this new model.

    Saying no one is a bit much I"m sure there will be suckers who pay for basically the same thing twice in three months. However, vast majority of new iPad owners won't update.

    I'll upgrade if there's an app I really like and it works much better with the A6. Or at least, I will If I can dump the 3 for a decent dollar.

    I don't doubt the 4th gen will sell, and it's a beastly piece of kit, but is it exciting? I lean towards no.

    The only reason I want the newer iPad because this two-cord thing (30-pin for iPad and Lightning for iPhone 5) is annoying as hell. Aside from that, there really isn't much else that entices me. I'm sure the A6X chip is awesome and all, but all I use is Safari, Facebook, Messages, and Mail, none of which benefit from a faster processor. As for the HD FaceTime camera, that's a great addition IMO (VGA is a fckn joke on something so expensive and especially in 2012!) but since I only use FaceTime about once a month, I could easily live without it.

    The only way I'll upgrade is only if I can get what I'm asking for it on Craigslist (the same price Apple is selling their refurbs). I refuse to spend a whole lot just for the sake of the Lightning connector.

    IIRC, the iPad 4 panels only have half the backlighting of the iPad 3. I would think this would help with the heat but I don't understand why the battery life didn't increase if it were true.

    This is the perfect time for me to upgrade my first gen iPad :)

    Or should I wait for the 5?

    I think if Apple really wanted to make waves with the 4th Gen iPad, they should have introduced a 128gig model. That's what I'm holding out for.

    Where did you read that? If you mean they are using IGZO panels, I haven't seen any suggestion and certainly no confirmation of that.
