    Probably not Outdated but a good chance your iPad3 will be Updated, particularly if the mini has any improved features over the iPad. Apple is unlikely to want its market share in the tablet world to slip and will want to maintain it as a flagship tablet.

    Rumours say the iPad Mini will have the same resolution as the original iPad and iPad2 and probably use a similar CPU as the iPad2. The iPad3 will still have superior resolution. It will not be outdated.

    If nothing ever changed or improved we'd still think the rotary dial phone and B&W CRT TV's were state of the art. :D

    Yes. The "Admiral" 12.5 inch B&W was racy for its time. Pricey too. My parents paid about $250
    CDN for our family's set in 1961. :)

    If anything, the iPad mini will hurt iPod touch sales, especially it the mini has a significant improvement of the battery life over the touch. As for the iPad, the only thing that will replace the iPad 3 would be the 4th generation iPad.

    So true, that's how the market works. Though the only place the third iPad would be outdated, is inside our heads.

    If you keep on using it like you do today, there is no real reason you'll ever buy any newer iPad. Ever.:eek:
