Back before the iPhone 4S was officially unveiled, there was a lot of buzz over whether Apple would give its iPhone a revamped look. The look, in fact, stayed identical. I argued that the iPhone didn’t really need a redesign, and to my surprise, 59% of you said the opposite: that the one-and-a-half-year-old iPhone needed a makeover.
Now that the next iPad stands on the cusp of being unveiled, I ask again: does the iPad need a redesign? And, how badly?
The situation with this new iPad (iPad 3? iPad 2S?) is different. No one is claiming the iPad’s getting a facelift: in fact, most reports say this iPad will look very similar, except for being possibly a bit thicker.
