It will be interesting to see what Apple is planning next. There's an iPad-mini 2 rumored to be in the works as well as a new, larger-than-the-original-sized iPad. That model might even turn into a two-piece tablet/keyboard laptop replacement device. Retail prices will surely continue to be a factor in any device's long-term success.
Apple hasn't said when either of those products may reach retail but Cook and other executive have dropped a number of hints that they'll have some new items to discuss later this year. With the recently announced overhaul to iOS coming this fall, Apple customers should expect new tablet designs to be a large part of the company's future.
