    I have an iPad 2 and thinking about replacing it with a new iPad. Should I purchase the iPad 4 or wait for the iPad 5? Does anyone know when the iPad 5 is expected out?

    The iPad 5 has been "rumored" to be coming out soon. However, we won't have a solid release date until Apple officially announces it.

    If you have been satisfied with your iPad for this long, why wait for the iPad 5? Get the current latest iPad and roll with it. It will already be more advanced and faster than your current iPad 2. The exception, however, is if there was solid information about when the iPad 5 will be introduced and made available for purchase, but since there isn't, at least to my knowledge, go with the what's is now the most recent iPad.

    I might wait till the announcement on the 10th. If no iPads introduced then go with the 4.

    iPads aren't on the menu for next month. iPhones, iOS 7 and iPods. Nothing about iPads. Sorry

    I don't believe it was on last years either. I have learned that if there is an apple event coming up to put all apple purchases on hold.

    It's expected the new Macbook Pros, Mavericks and ipads will be a late Oct event. Like last year.

    I don't typically advise waiting but we are just so close to finding out more info about a next gen iPad that waiting is a good idea. If the leaks pan out and the new iPad has the same design as the iPad Mini that is a WORTHY upgrade.

    if i were you, i would wait for the iPad 5. it is expected to launch next month and the thinness and lightness of the new iPad would be the selling point.

    You should wait. See the specs and decide if its worth the money or if the money is better spent on the iPad 4 which will most likely have a price drop.

    I think that I'm going to go for the 5. I was just going to keep my 4 but why not?

    If it was earlier in the year, I'd say to go ahead and get the iPad 4. However since a new one is likely to be announced next month, I'd advise waiting.

    Way back, I got my iPhone 3G about two weeks before the 3GS was announced. Not planning on making that mistake again.

    If your iPad 2 works fine now, be a little patient and get the iPad 5 in a couple months for what an iPad 4 costs now.

    I don't believe Apple will be announcing the iPads today. The new iPads will more than likely have their own announcement some time in October.
