Nobody make you buy any product every 8 month. Maybe you did not use it the right way. Just stupid people will do that. Electronic device goes obsolete in one year after manufacture warrant ended.

I was genuinely expecting a retina display. Would much rather keep my sharper Nexus 7. I'm sure we can agree the iPad 2 and iPad mini's screens are horrific.

My ipad is 3 weeks old.. I should have known they will announce the 4th gen.. I just wasted my money for this slower 3rd gen ipad

It still runs fine doesn't it? It didn't all the sudden die because of an announcement of a new one did it? Yes, it sucks, but you've still got a fully functional tablet that'll be supported and updated for years to come.

Yeah.but it really makes me feel outdated.. Anyways. I love my jailbroken ipad.. I wont get that now on ipad 4 because of ios6..

Don't feel outdated, the A5X still has loads of power and performance :)

i don't know what is more dumb apple shooting their customers who bought the ipad 3 with retina display or releasing the ipad mini about 6 months after ipad 3. the tech on it is good the price is ok but the nexus 7 is still cheaper with about the same configuration if the ipad mini was like same price as the nexus then sure it a go by but it isn't is priced at 329 for 16gb. At this point apple is getting really arrogant cause they will know people will buy an ipad mini. Some apple fans like my friends i know are getting really mad on the direction that tim cook is taking them and literally saying what in the hell is apple doing but we will see. leave comments on what you think and take on this.

apple is under pressure ....because compitition increases tooooo much .....that is why they announced it..............

i agree apple is facing the most pressure they ever have. i believe in my mind and will put on money on it is that apple is legitimately pressured and scared because the nexus 7 and maybe the kindle hd are serious competitors so in a way it is an answer the competition in their minds.

Surface Pro all the way. Cannot come soon enough. IPad is such a useless device. I have the iPad 2 and barely find any use for it except my 3 year old son watching cartoons and after the iOS 6 update poor kid got confused because he can't find the Youtube app anymore. Oh and Lumia 920 Hurry up please. Soooooo bored of the iPhone i feel sick every time i look at it.

It's official, Apple now releases products faster than Android OEMs do. Seriously, the iPad3 just came out and now they already have it's replacement.

It's still the same looks, iOS and without expandability. I'm sure 100% that I'm not going to buy it.

You know you just put "expandability" and "iOS" in the same sentence?... = oxymoron
34. tusshharish (Posts: 342; Member since: 23 Oct 2012)
cant they launch iphone 6 instead of this......

How the heck people are going to know which iPad are they buying? They look the same. Will they have to trust the seller? Will they have to start memorizing serial numbers? Apple is out innovating ideas.

With the arrival of W8 tablets (also with new x86) and the Nexus 10 on a market where exists already Nexus7 and Kindle the iPad mini is just too late. Apple is losing traction. Few will shed a tear.

"The new tablet also adds a Lightning connector instead of the (not so) good old 30-pin connector. It also has faster Wi-Fi connectivity and expanded LTE. Otherwise, the device is pretty much identical to the iPad third generation."
Which was pretty much identical to the second generation which was pretty much identical to the first generation.
I love how Apple manages to make incremental updates the "next big thing." Probably maximizes profit my keeping actual design costs to a minimum.

I was thrown off by them calling it the ipad 4. I was definitely expecting The New Ipad 2! When is the ipad 4 available? Is the ipad 5 going to be released just before the Christmas holiday?
