I think ipad is a pretty new OS and applications compare to window, so this means, there are still a lot of applications we use to since the introduction of window pretty hard to abadone for senior users, probably new user is easier to adapt and start with a new device from scratch without much use to kind of feeling and legacy.

Yes, MS and all of the apps writers for the PC became very lazy and let the bandwidth and memory requirements of their applications grow so much that it kept up with the hardware advancements. We would have very fast computers today if they had kept their code compact and efficient. That would be great for laptops and tablets.

I almost want to buy one, but who wants the old technology. Also, my wife got me a Kindle Fire for Christmas and I am really happy with it.

I suspect+hope it also means that iPad will have a constant form going forward. Size, screen size, button/camera/connector location, etc. will remain constant. Not so good for the case and peripheral makers, but good for the consumer (me).

I could not wait people to cut A5x open to see what is in there. Since it is not called A6, I am guessing it is still in 40nm technology. Apple just upgrade it to support 4x resolution with 2x graphics performance.

I think that the combined higher end specifications and the software to utilize it will be a win for Apple. I would love to test drive one and see how it performs with streaming video and battery life. I am constantly amazed at the density of these devices, each time I pick up one I am surprised by the weight. Good luck with the new iPad!

Most of Apple's products don't have version numbers. iMac, Mac Pro, Mac mini, MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iPod classic, iPod nano, iPod shuffle, iPod touch, AppleTV. Actually, iPhone and iPad are the ONLY products that have version numbers. I think that Apple realizes that it's stupid and costs them money to do that.

BTW, the display and extra graphics cores are something any tablet maker can add. Only Apple could do the enhanced photo editing and other software that winds up being the real differentiator to consumers.

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
