Sometimes when you buy tech products is as important as what you buy. I have a co-worker who bought an iPhone 4S about a month before the iPhone 5 came out, at the same price. They now have this year-old phone for 2 more years under contract, when they could have spent the same amount for the new one. Don't let this happen to you. Apple is likely to announce a new iPad 'Mini' next week, so if you were thinking about buying any kind of tablet this week, hold off.
