  1. Optimists, thinking they will be around that long. They expect their current lineup to make money?!

  2. I’m not sure that’s a great strategy. Current models reviewed poorly, iPad sales still seem fairly strong, tons of BIG NAME companies prepping tablets, and they basically said wait a year?
