You forgot 5. It's an iPad nano. :lol:

I don’t know that that’s not a bad idea, actually. It could go either way; iPad nano or iPod touch. By purposely positioning the “phablet” device as ONLY a tablet, Apple would simultaneously breathe new life into the iPod touch (and create a home gaming/automation platform) and give six million upthrust middle fingers to the Android ecosystem (is a spent fuel rod waste repository really an ecosystem?) as to the very concept of a phone+tablet.

Yes. THAT’S what I’m talking about.

Why have these people not been fired? What does this say to anyone else in any other occupation about needing to have any sort of integrity whatsoever?

 

Another way of saying this is that "Apple just can't make them fast enough" to meet the projected demand.  ROFL

Apple is the one really falling short. More cash, more expertise, more capability than any other tech company, and come July of 2014 they've announced and released zero new products for the year. That which is expected TBA is the bare minimum.

AppleTV?
Mac mini?
iWatch?

What on other is going on? The better they do, the more they pull out. I don't understand it.

It was something like 6 years between the iPod and the iPhone. And we know the iPhone was born out of work being done to create a multitouch tablet, a project Apple suspended for (at least 4+ years) to develop the iPhone before resuming work on what launched as the iPad.

All you are doing is inventing a fictional release schedule and expecting Apple to live up to it, then claiming disappointment when they don't.

This happens with every release - Apple drops different "rumors" to different employees to track who leaks what ... and of course, Apple gets to push other news off the page - it's a win, win and no severance pay. :-)

Impeccable timing, Ming-Chi Kuo.

 

You loudly pronounce to the world that the 5.5 faces production issues, and that very same model goes into production a week later.

 

Niiiiiice.

I would go for 4.7 anyway. I'm curious as to how many people opt for the smaller one.
