These anal-ysts are confusing Apple starting production early with Apple releasing it early.
Apple either want a LOT of stock or need more time to create the same amount of stock because of the technological boundaries that they are pushing.
People giving it a 5 star rating obviously have never used any other tablet and bought it for the price point only so have no frame of reference to give it an accurate rating.
Either that or they are:
Amazon employees so are obliged to give the 5 star rating
Android users so don't know any better.
I wish that Apple would do a reply advert in the same style but the people in the Apple queue come up with the answers and trump the Samsung phone (like we know would actually happen in real life).
Maybe starting with a "Sammy" store, manager inside rallying his staff with a motivational speech about quantity not quality of sales of their brand new, released that day, flagship model. Camera pans round to see massive queues passing the store entrance. The manager opens...
Well, he did call himself "reality check" so clearly he needs one.
It's not just the upgrade of the iPad, it's the update of every other service that it seamlessly works with designed by Apple. Nothing that Samsung can release will ever be better because it will just be a single unit, not a device that connects to an ecosystem.
