And... according to both Nilay and Josh... bringing "their A game" means "change the external design". Which is the shallowest comment anybody who claims to be an expert in technology can possible say.
They kind of did the same with the iPhone 5, which has an impressive new SOC designed by Apple itself, that's far far far more technologically interesting than any external casing redesign (complaining about the software was justified, but that's another issue).

It comes with Adreno 320 which is only outdone by iPad's SGX543MP4, and the quad core Krait simply beats everything else.
Do you agree with me?
