Lol. Apple's new product cycle is every 3-5 years. They're in no hurry to prove anything to anyone. When the time is right, they'll release a new product. They're not going to do it earlier simply to please you.
The iPad mini is just as innovative as the iPad.
The iPad is a large iPhone you can't make a call on. The mini is actually more innovative--It's a different form factor but they didn't remove any functionality.
Truth is Jobs didn't make any major innovations. He took existing products and made them pretty and easy to use. He was a marketing genius, not a product genius.
