    I'm having trouble deciding if I should buy the iPad 3 or wait until the fall and hope for a new one. I'll be getting the new iPhone 5 in the fall, but probably because of the long waiting list, I won't be actually getting it until like November. Anyway, I can wait until November or a little after that if it's going to be released. I'm in no rush for the iPad 3 too, since I would only get the Wifi one and I'm using my iTouch atm.

    Each of the first three models were released in March. We'll let you guess when the fourth-generation model comes out.

    The heavily rumored smaller iPad looks like it may come out with the new iPods and iPhones later this year. I would assume after that it would fall into the iPad's refresh cycle.

    I read about a new ipad 3 basically with a better design than the one I bought coming out in the fall. That pisses me off.

    The best iPad to get if you're worried about a new iPad replacing it is no iPad.

    exactly, every year there will be a new one. you dont have to use the latest one. do not try to catch technology.

    A hot desert
    I wouldn't be surprised to see them move to a twice a year cycle.

    The easiest solution is to buy the current model, and, when it's getting close to the launch of the next model, pop the old on on Craigslist.

    I just sold my 32gb Wifi iPad 2 that I bought in March 2011 at launch for $450 on Craigslist 3 weeks ago (early July 2012). A year and a half's use cost me $150, or about $10 per month.

    I do the same for iPhone and MacBook Pro Air every product cycle. It keeps my technology up to date at a minimal cost.

    I would get the iPad 3 now rather than wait until next March.

    Its not about complain its about screwing customers. Its not like it came out a year ago. Its like we could of waited and came out with a perfect ipad 3 but instead its better to screw customers and have them upgrade in 6 months for the ipad they should of got in the first place.

    the iPad 3 came out not too long ago... so pretty sure you won't be seeing the 4th gen iPad until next year. if you want to wait almost a year, I guess that's your choice but I would just get the ipad 3.

    Just buy the IPad 3 it's a great product (using IPad 3 LTE) when Apple releases IOS 6 it will even be better.

    If it was 30 to 60 days to the release of the next version then it would be better to wait but 8 months to release is way to long to wait.
