A little light reading before you buy into this apple advertizement.
BTW,how did the other tablets do?
I'll wait for the Nexus 10 2 > USB OTG and Mico SD slot
iPad owners store HD video? That's news to me! Most video on mobile devices are streamed these days ala Netflix or Hulu. Who downloads videos/movies that are hundreds of MB's? No one! Where are they getting these videos? If it's itunes I highly doubt they are buying HD movies in droves. What takes up the most room on all IOS devices are actually pictures and videos taken by the user with the device itself...
Reality is 128gb is way overkill for the majority of the purchasers but it's seen as a "top of the line model". If apple offered 2 versions of each devices, the first with a faster CPU and smaller storage, and a slower CPU and larger storage, most people would get the faster CPU. Offer customers only 1 upgrade choice and they will take it even if they don't need it.
There are still plenty of virtual packrats to be found though. As someone who has a pretty massive library of flac songs that CAN'T be found on Pandora or Spotify, it can be pretty frustrating when vendors sell phones/tablets with only 16/32gb options with no expansion.
There are so many other tablets that are leagues better and cheaper, to boot. I'd take a Kindle Fire HDX or a Nexus over an iPad any day. Can't wait to see what Google is doing with the Nexus 10.
I agree, there are a ton of other options on the market right now that offer better value and accessibility. The iPad Air is a really nice tablet with a killer ecosystem, if Apple would just drop the price... then again, they've never competed on price.

They will not drop the price simply because people are so dumb they will line up for 14 day just to be one of the first to get an apple product. LOL I still piss myself over that.
Apple is like drug.
