Was Apple right to update the iPad only 6 months after the last update

So within 6 months we have gone from the iPad 3 to the iPad 4.  I was really surprised when this was announced earlier today at the Apple Special Event.

There are obvious hardware performance improvements and don't get me wrong, I think improving technology is great but ....

As a user of a now obsolete first generation iPad will the pace of change be such the iPad2 and possibly 3 will now become obsolete and no longer supported soon?

With tough economic times still here and ahead of us and with the desire of most Apple fans to keep upgrading are we now being (forced) into a very short refresh cycle?

Is this an issue of profit for Apple or a genuine desire to innovate and develop?

I would love to know what you think.
