    iPad Owners Unhappy at Fast Refresh


    BGR writes today that according to a new survey, nearly half of iPad owners polled are unhappy that a new full-sized iPad model has been launched by Apple so soon after the iPad 3 was launched at the start of the year. The survey, from Toluna QuickSurveys, found that 43% of US consumers polled were angry that the fourth-generation iPad had been launched just seven months after the third-generation iPad. BGR says that consumers would not have been so upset if the iPad had just been updated with the addition of a Lightning dock connector, for example, but the fact that it has a new-and-improved processor, the A6X, could be what really rankles with people. Toluna found that those polled were much more enthusiastic about the iPad mini, with 14% saying they would definitely buy it, and 32% saying that they will probably buy it. More people actually said they would buy the Kindle Fire, however. Also, 21% of those polled, or 1 in 5, said they would buy an iPad mini as a holiday gift.

    I'm not thrilled, but it is what it is. I bought my 3 in March and its been fine all this time and will continue to fine. I'm not in a position to replace it.

    The turnover rate for any of the electronic devices often makes me hesitate. The only thing that plays a bigger role on when I buy or don't buy, and what I buy or don't buy, is my ability to afford the device when I want to get it. With a lot of us, this fast rate starts to be a real turnoff in general. But as long as there is a market for newer and better, the manufacturers will continue to speed up the process.

    Unfortunately, that's the way of the industry. I'm sure the manufacturers would prefer to sit back and relax, but while the market is driven by competition they have no choice but to continually improve their models.

    When I first joined this forum, nearly every new tablet launch was hailed as the "iPad killer" by sections of the tech media, including some who should have known better. We don't hear that now.

    All I can suggest is that you buy what you are comfortable with and enjoy it. The iPad is a remarkable machine, whichever version you have

    Even if they're unhappy, I wonder what they'll do. Are they ready to jump to an Android tablet or an MS Surface? If not, it doesn't matter if they're unhappy. I'm guessing that most of them will keep buying Apple, and Apple probably factored that in ahead of time.

    Even if they jump to Android/MS what are they going to find? More of the same. You think Android are standing still? It wasn't so long back that people were whining because Apple took a year to come up with updates, and Android were so far ahead.

    Just look at the Nexus 7. It was released in July and a new one was already released this week. One of the major reasons I jumped ship awhile back was due to a new Android device being released ever 2 weeks. I am more than happy to deal with every 6 months.

    Yeah, I fully expect products to be updated and released as new models fairly frequently in this industry. There will always be something bigger, faster, whatever. Everyone got what they paid for and if their tablet is working good, like mine, then there isn't anything to fret over. Someone will always just have bought the previous model no matter when they release something new. It's just the way of things.
