This is what I was expecting for this spring. I wonder if the iPad 5 is going to get released this spring or if they are going to go with this new release time. I can't imagine where Apple will go from here.

I surprise the hypocrisy here . Android released a new model every 2 weeks with minor improvements. geeks here goes trough phones because they want to have the latest gadget , but wait now Apple wants to do it and now is a joke right?.. anyhow.. the joke is always on you for hating a company so much that it actually makes stronger

The reason some people are criticizing Apple for this is because it's unlike them. Apple is getting further and further away from their roots. First they release a half-baked product (Maps) and now they released a new model just 7 months after the last one. Everyone is used to Android phones popping up every month or so, but not Apple products.

Android does not release a new model every 2 weeks...every 2 weeks there may be a new android model but its not from the same manufacturer for ur info..and of course they all dont look the same!!

again Motorola did it last year with their RAZR nad RAZR Maxx
58. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3883; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
It was the same phone, just a bigger battery. This is an actual upgrade, with a 2X faster processor, new dock connector, and a better camera. It's different

what about the Samsung note 10.1 and the Galaxy tab 10.1 but is ok because Samsung changed the names right.. don't act like Android doesn't do it.

there was a year in between their releases. xD
64. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3883; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
I'm not saying Android doesn't do it, I'm just saying comparing it to the Razr and Razr Maxx was a bad example.
But the main difference is, Apple doesn't do this. How come when Android does it, you criticize it, but when Apple does it it's suddenly ok? Hypocrisy.
65. gallitoking (Posts: 4682; Member since: 17 May 2011)
never had said that is ok for Apple to do it. and never had said that is ok for Android to do it. so please rephrase your statement
74. Berzerk000 (Posts: 3883; Member since: 26 Jun 2011)
Your previous comments on this subject are phrased to make it sound like this is ok for Apple to do because Android does it.

Android is an OS not a manufacturer, durrr

You're the one being a hypocrite. If android releases a slew of phones, you say it's dumb. But when Apple follows in Android's footsteps and does it, it's ok. It's a joke, because you guys claim Apple is not about that...but look at their recent releases, from phones to tablets.

amazing how we dont see iFans hating on apple for releasing upgrades to existing products every 6 or so months like when they were hating on Android manufactures for doing the same.
uh oh.. here comes downward pressure on ipads. Looks like they wont be holding their value so long, eh?
54. HouTexan (Posts: 300; Member since: 08 Jan 2012)
Thank you! And gallito wants to call someone a hypocrite? He needs to get real.
59. gallitoking (Posts: 4682; Member since: 17 May 2011)
no ifans hate Android for that we can care less what Android does.

I know, it's like Apple now needs to copy Android's model & release new devices every 6 months now.
Apple doen't want anyone to copy them, but it's ok for them to copy Android? lol
66. gallitoking (Posts: 4682; Member since: 17 May 2011)
you sound like Android was the 1st to do it.. which is wrong.. just like Apple din't invent the yearly releases..
68. fistigons (Posts: 262; Member since: 11 Feb 2012)
I wish Apple would have taken the time and also upgraded both cameras and given it the in-cell display. Anyways CES is around the corner and it will be interesting to see what everyone else brings to the tablet market. Tablets are getting almost as powerful as my old laptop. Hopefully the next bunch that comes out have something more to them than spec bumps and better resolutions. I'm surprised none of the big manufacturers have tried to incorporate Pixel Qi displays.
69. fistigons (Posts: 262; Member since: 11 Feb 2012)
Oops just read they upgraded the front camera. Must have missed that one during the announcement.

Wow. They'll keep the screen of the 3rd gen ipad, really? Always thought that the will be back at the ipad 2's display because it's much better. ......and double the processing power? Make sure to measure that one with some useful ibenchmark. I will be doing everything in a "halt instant" with my new-new Ipad 3S.

the reason why apple change it to lightning connector coz both samsung and asus (any maybe others) also have 30-pin connector...and we all know that apple hates others for "copying" its "innovation"
75. atsamman (Posts: 73; Member since: 26 Sep 2012)
how can it be twice as fast
I mean the iPad is soooo freaken fast compared to any android tablet how can iPad 4 be twice faster ??!!!!!
85. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
Wow you compared the iPad to every android tablet......must of took you awhile. Its not faster then every other android tab, get your head out your ass
86. atsamman (Posts: 73; Member since: 26 Sep 2012)
1st i don't know why most android users take it personally when saying that an apple device is better than an androids its like I'm offending a member of his family
I own a galaxy note 10.1 which alotta reviewers consider it one of the fastest android tablets and I compaired it with an iPad 3 and 2 both outperformed my galaxy note 10.1 also compared it to gt7510 and transformer prime no match
and if u weren't just all over our head and read reviews u would see that all declare that the iPad is infact faster almost never laggs
its a problem in android sys no matter how much they upgrade the hardware it will still lagg
88. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
lmao haha so you bs comment on it been faster then 'every' tablet is ok is it lol
and dont talk crap mate people like you always say look i have an android bla blah and an iblah and the ibalh wins. reality you dont your just using more bs to try prove your point.
this lag argument is the saddest thing ever now, you apple fanboys need something new as android no longer lags as you claim. and the ipad suffers lag too. all devices do depending on how you use them. seeing as the ipad is a casual app launcher with a basic os it wont be as noticeable. if you heavily customize your android you may get abit but if you strip it to the basics like iOS android doesnt lag.
yeah i take reviews with a pinch of salt as ive seen reviews stating the iphones 4s camera matching the nokia 808...........the biggest bs ever
most reviewers are now to bias with there own preferences to give a fair review.
and to finish, you didnt compare to any other tablets, your just arrogantly stating its 'soooo freaken fast compared to any android tablet'
so i'll pull a page from your book then ' any android tablet is soooo much better and costs less plus you get full customization and no restrictions with file formats etc'
89. atsamman (Posts: 73; Member since: 26 Sep 2012)
I'm not gonna continue arguing with u 1st cause cause I really don't care what u think
and 2nd cause its pointless ur just so stricktley mind locked on android and how its better than iOS and I'm with u
I really like android sys but the laggyness and lack of some apps on tablets are killing me
just read this article if u wanna know
90. chaoticrazor (Posts: 2347; Member since: 28 Aug 2012)
im not with android, although i know its better then iOS. currently i use symbian. i dont get why if you dont praise iOS you seen as in the android camp its so closed minded. im not locked on android, surface looks a much better tablet then anything out now i go for what is better not to saty in a certain group.
you dont care what i think, shame that although i couldnt give a crap what you care about so works out.
this lag you talk of is just a old criticism that ifans throw out to try defend there iOS. just from the title of that article i can tell its biased opinion so no point.

People lag is something of the past!
76. Techboi (Posts: 84; Member since: 20 Sep 2012)

91. solidsnakeduds013 (Posts: 215; Member since: 20 Oct 2010)
