    I'm considering ditching my 16g LTE 3rd gen to offset cost on 2 minis with LTE . The black back would have been a nice addition for the 4th gen but that'll likely come in the 5th. Any guesses whether that'll be a spring or fall release, I'm betting apples release schedule will be crammed all in late Q3-Q4 now

    I can't wait! I decided to go the Ipad route instead of purchasing a new computer! Between my ip5 and the iPad mini. It will be perfect!

    The iPad is rumored to be set for a refresh in March 2013.

    I don't see it happening. If that were the case we'd be in the same predicament with the iPad 4 as we're with the 3 now. Plus I think Apple is for now planning fall releases of the iPad/iPhone now, as other people stated before.

    Does anyone know if we will be able to pre-order the cellular version or is it just wifi?

    Well, I believe that Apple only updated the iPad to keep it ahead of the mini and to give it the new lightning connector. Let's be honest, if Apple hadn't refreshed the iPad and given it a better, faster processor the mini would be on par with the larger iPad in terms of performance and that would keep a lot more people from purchasing the iPad 4.

    Only Wi-Fi for now. Is anyone else here just waiting to pre-order the iPad 4th Gen and not the mini?

    Valid point. We shall see come March/April. That's about the time I was planning on replacing my iPad 2.

    The iPhone 5 sold out in an hour. I'm hearing there are supply issues with the Mini, so I would snag one right away if at all possible.

    Me. I think the mini is too similar to my iPhone 5. I think I will like the larger screen. It will be my first iPad.

    Also, the Apple TV and iPad were upgraded together which leads me to believe those two products will remain in the first half of the year. Imagine Apple holding an event just to update their Apple TV. Not likely, at least in my opinion.
