When we picked up our iPad 4 on Nov. 2 (coincidentally, at the same time we picked up our iPad mini), we took it to our lab as soon as we could to take it apart and analyze what differences there were, if any, between this new iPad and the iPad 3. We used a heat gun to soften the adhesive around the touchscreen.
This just seems so odd to me. Why would Apple release the iPad 4 and the iPad Mini on the same day? Furthermore, I have not seen any advertising for the iPad 4. Anyone have any insight/opinions as to the timing of this release?
Tear downs make great artwork. There was as store window that had a "tear down" of a motorcycle in Asia recently (can't remember the exact city). Each piece was suspended from the ceiling with wire. It was beautiful.
If Allan frames his tear downs, he could have a side career as an artist!
I think it's obvious - Apple wants/needs to spread the Lightning connector across their product line as quickly as possible, otherwise it remains something of a "quirk" on the iPhone 5 and iPad mini vs the enormous installed base of the larger dock connector.
Personally at this time I'd still go for the iPad4 as the CPU change is IMO not worth dealing with the connector incompatibility (also have an iPhone 4 and a 4S).
