Well, even though we weren't exactly caught by surprise by the offerings of the fifth-generation iPad, Apple has at least surprised us with the name of its new full-sized tablet...

iPad 'Air' = Thinner/lighter/New SoC, yet still runs the same apps and has the same functionality/features.
iPad 2 = Same device many have owned and liked for some 3 years now, though this time it won't likely see another major OS update due to its limited SoC/RAM.
iPad Mini 2 = Better display, updated SoC, same design, functionality and features with a serious price hike.
iPad Mini = Same device with (perplexingly) a mere US 30.00 price drop.
... and There You Have It!

I'm more concerned as to why the iPad 2 hasn't dropped in price. Who in their right mind will buy it for $399.99?

ipad 2 is just a rip off, its that simple, everything else is fine but the ipad 2 at 399 which is nearly 3 year old hardware with no future proofing spec is just ridiculous

I still got my iPad 2 which i bought in 2011 and still using it. No problems atm because i didnt update it to iOS 7. IOS7 is lagging like hell. Btw im no fanboy my phone is htc one

Same story on my iPad 3, which is inferior to your iPad 4 hardware-wise. Yet the iPhone 5s runs iOS7 like butter which makes me think that the OS is optimized for the new 64 bit A7.
I have noticed that with the latest software update (7.0.3) it is a LITTLE smoother, though.
