'Clearance sale' shows Apple's iPad is over. It's done

With touchscreen a trackpad should be obsolescent.

Not at all. When using the device as a tablet the touch screen is essential, but when using it in "laptop mode" and typing on the keyboard it feels more natural to use the trackpad ... and avoids tilting the whole contraption over backwards.

Having both input mechanisms available means that each user can use the device in their own preferred way.
