So at first, I didn't want to complain about buying an iPad 3rd gen 4 months ago. Although I wasn't expecting a new version until March, it happened, oh well. I decided I may as well sell my iPad 3rd gen and buy the iPad Mini. But now I see that the iPad 3rd gen is only 469 for my 32gb model. I paid 599+69 for the leather smartcover, and now if I want to effectively DOWNGRADE to the iPad Mini, I'm looking at selling my iPad for about 450$ at the most, since nobody pays more for accessories, which is a pretty big hit I think for such a small time with an Apple product. I know, I know, I'm a whiner, whatever, but it was pretty distasteful for Apple to do this. Most companies of this calibre playing this game let you know when they're about to release a new version of a product. Having a surprise 4th generation iPad was really a slap in the face to existing customers.
