I don't think a date for the release of the 4th gen was given though? I was following Verge. I'm having a dig to see.

Honestly it wasn't much of a change. a bump in processor speed, new lightning connector. no redesign, not lighter, not thinner.. i might order one anyways but I returned my original iPad 3 because I was disappointed in screen uniformity and wanted something just a little lighter.. was going to wait for iPad 4 but if i have to wait another year from now I might as well get this updated one. but nothing for anyone to be super unhappy about imo, although it will affect resale value, I don't think it does anything great for every day usage.

Bought one in April; sucks for me.

Yes, I realize that technology marches on, and continued relevance is guaranteed to no tablet. I'm going to pout anyway.

I'm pouting as well. Seems our idevices are obsolete upon purchase but I'm feeling better about not wanting to downsize

UK prices for the mini:

EDITED (more complete source):

Quote:
The entry wi-fi-only model, with 16GB storage, will cost £269 in the UK and be available on 2 November.

...

The other wi-fi-only models will have a recommended retail price of £349 for 32GB and £429 for 64GB.

The devices with cellular capability will be released "a couple of weeks" after the wi-fi-only models, the company said. They will be priced at £369 for 16GB, £449 for 32GB and £529 for 64GB.

I would disagree. Especially if the 32GB materializes for $249-ish.

He has no need for an Apple logo.

Checked in on the CNET live blog. Frankly, I'm astonished. 16GB for $329? What kind of nonsense is that?

That's $70 less than what I expected it to cost.

Granted, that's typical Apple, but I didn't think even they would have the cojones to go > $300 for what everyone else is charging < $250 for (even taking into account the rear-facing camera).

Apple fans will camp out to buy them and eventually millions will be sold.
