Overall: Guys this is actually the 3rd gen iPad. Apple introduced 4th gen iPad in a surprise move which is not so surprising if you understand the differences between both generations. As any company with multiple products carrying same proprietary connectors, Apple had to upgrade iPad 3 which carried Apple's previous 30-pin dock connector. And by the time it was going to get upgraded, A6X processor had already been developed. So they put it in 4th gen. So in nutshell there are only 4 differences between 3rd and 4th gen iPads, which are
1. Lightning connector instead of 30-pin dock
2. iOS 6 preloaded instead of iOS 5
3. A6X processor instead of A5X
4. Front facing HD camera instead of VGA
3rd gen has been discontinued and 4th gen has taken its place while iPad 2 is still in production for those who don't wanna spend much on it.
Since there is no price difference most of you would want to wait for 4th gen to come available in India. But since there is not much difference and Flipkart is providing an awesome deal for HDFC card holders to buy it in 12 month EMI without any processing fee you might be inclined to buy it. Well I think at least 19 out of 20 people would like to wait but there might be 1 who would want to go with this one instead of waiting for 1-2 months.
Decision is yours.
