    Is Apple management suffering from some form of commitment fear syndrome?


    The world expects iPhone 5 - Apple delivers iPhone 4S

    The world expects iPad 3 - Apple delivers 'The New iPad' ???? :D



    is this a new trend?

    The world? You mean the people on these forums?

    The world has already shown that Apple's product strategy works great by making them the best selling products on the planet...

    The world, or the geek press?



    'Tis but thy name that is my enemy;
    Thou art thyself, though not a Montague.
    What's Montague? it is nor hand, nor foot,
    Nor arm, nor face, nor any other part
    Belonging to a man. O, be some other name!
    What's in a name? that which we call a rose
    By any other name would smell as sweet;
    So Romeo would, were he not Romeo call'd,
    Retain that dear perfection which he owes
    Without that title. Romeo, doff thy name,
    And for that name which is no part of thee
    Take all myself.

    i do mean 'the world'. As you say '... the best selling products on the planet' - there is no doubt about that.

    .... the amazing Apple marketing machine has surprised the world again.

    Why simply get a iPad 3 when you can always get a New iPad !

    actually EVERYTHING is in the name ...... or else it would simply be another generic 'tablet'.

    water cooler banter....
    Bob: I got a new iPad.
    Phil: which one?
    Bob: the new iPad
    Phil: ahhh, iPad 3
    Bob: no, the new iPad
    Phil: ?, did you get a new iPad 2 ?
    Bob: no, the new iPad
    Phil: iPad 3 ?
    Bob: no, there is no iPad 3, i got the new iPad.
    Phil: oh?, why don't you wait for the iPad 3 to come out. :D........

    They are just falling in line with their other products.

    I dont here anyone complaning that the new Apple TV doesnt have a number in the name....

    Apple has a set number of products that they offer and each year they upgrade each model. You refer to the specific model you have by the year you purchased it. If they just added numbers to each product name each year it would start to sound silly after a while.

    They may shift the iPhone over to this naming convention with the rest of their products. You would have the new iPhone not iPhone 5. Its just like how they dont call the new iPod Touch somethig like an iPod Touch 5
