I've lost count of iPad versions anyway.
I have the one I Iike (Mini) and will keep it until it's no longer supported and it's 3 year John Lewis cover runs out.
Not overly concerned with having the latest thing every time Apple have a launch.

I have been looking forward for the launch for weeks now, I am just a bit tired and watching the football.
I have read most of the bits (thank you WHF) though and it sounds good. Bring on Black Friday now!

I love iPads they are my favourite gadget, and I really wanted to hear about the new ones. I am now looking forward to seeing them in person, from what I read the iPad Air sounds good. I am not sure it will tempt me to part with any cash at the moment though, perhaps next time. We will see.
It's a bit more powerful, a bit thinner and still expensive.
That's it isn't it? Oh, no, they have given it the "Air" tag to try and cash in on the name of the laptop.
Me, I quite like the new Nokia tablet...
For those that do care...
iPad Mini with Retina display
I'm a apple fanboy I love there stuff ,I'm using the ipad 4 with retina display to write this .i have the mini aswell ,I won't bother upgrading the mini but the ipad air is getting bought ASAP.i will attach this ipad to the my twelve south hoverbar and attach it to the mac.
I have the first iPad, so will be buying the new one, should be a decent ugrade.........72 x faster graphics apparently! Best gadget I've ever bought!!!
I saw the iPad mini for £250 in John Lewis today - can't be too bad.
I think Apple have been really clever with the Ipad Air and addressed the main issue with the product - its weight and they will sell bundles of them as a result.

Apple have just done the same as other manufacturers and make it thinner and lighter. As usual people get caught up in the hysteria.
A Kindle Fire HDX for example is about 100g lighter with better battery life and a higher resolution screen than the Ipad Air. We havent seen the new Nexus 11 yet either.
And I'd still much prefer to have a 16:9 aspect if I'm going to be watching videos on it, rather than losing 25% of the screen to black bars either side.
A film on a Nexus 10 will look about 29% larger than on a Ipad due to the aspect ratio.
What hysteria?this thread has only a dozen posts.
Why when people don't like apple products do they feel they have to convince everybody.
Why do Apple keep the iPad 2 around but not 3 and 4? :?

Lack of retina display so it doesn't encroach on iPad Air's sales.
