This is where economics comes into play - if I spent $829 for a top-end iPad 1 and sold it for $600 when the iPad 2 came out and paid another $829 for that one, and also sold it for $600 to buy the $829 iPad 3, and then repeated that for the iPad 4 … I would have spent $1500 for four top-end tablets with cellular data.

Android devices (like PCs) lack the resale value hold - they are like a car where the second you open the box the value drops by 50% (obvious exaggeration). But in terms of tablets, for $1500 you would get nowhere near the long-term value …
