Happy New Year

Happy New Year. 2012 felt like it went by in a flash – and it was an eventful year for iPad owners and fans. We saw the release of a new iPad 3, the lovely little iPad mini, and the unexpected iPad 4 alongside the mini in November.

We also saw the iPad operating system updated to iOS 6 with a slew of new features.

2013 should be another action-packed year for the iPad. It now faces more and perhaps stiffer competition from Android tablets and others. There’s speculation that Apple is ramping up its refresh cycle for the iPad too – so we may see a 6 month refresh cycle rather than the one year cycle they initially followed. That might result in a new iPad 5 and / or new iPad mini release in the March April period.

I’m excited about the new year, for a number of reasons. Here’s wishing all of you health, happiness and success this coming year.

  1. Happy new year to you too Patrick!
    I do think 2013 is going to be an interesting year for the iPad and the tablet marketplace as a whole. Apple is going to face unprecedented competition from all sides as others are trying to take a slice of their pie, so will have to work hard to keep staying ahead of the crowd.
