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

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.
