They're moving the annual launch date to before the December holidays rather than after it to capture holiday sales. Having it right after the hollidays was always a dumb move and left many who had received old ipads as gifts rather disappointed.

Well if they did that, what would they release 6 months from now?!

It's called stealing a march on the opposition. i.e. Microsoft Surface coming out later in the week.:D
