April?


I'd say within the next 2 weeks given the Apple Store is down and retailers have started lowering prices.

499, 599, and 699 for 16, 32, and 64GB. 629, 729, and 829 with 4G ( in $)

I suppose it's personal preference.

Once you go Retina it's painful looking at a standard res screen. You clearly notice the difference switching between the iPhone 4 and iPad.

i think it has siri....“This new device has more memory and higher screen resolution than an Xbox 360 or PS3.” LOL Apple trying to take over the WORLD!!
