iPad Christmas Gift
My boyfriend bought me an iPad :ipad-back: for Christmas (totally wasn't expecting it). I have an iPhone and a MacBook so I am familiar with Apple.
I was wondering what everyone's take was on keeping it OR waiting for the 2nd generation to come out. I wish I knew the exact date it would be out... I just am unsure what to do really.
It is just the wifi version... I have my iPhone so I figured I don't need the 3g. BUT I really need some advice on what to do. I would much rather have the newer one (especially if it has a USB port) but I don't know if I should wait or what?
Anyone else in the same boat?
For my iPhone I just sold it on craigslist and used the money to upgrade, not sure if people do this for iPads.
Thank you so much & Happy Holidays!
I just saw another post similar to this... sorry!
But I still would like feedback since I do not know how similar the market it is to iPhones for selling them.
I see a lot of iPads on Craigslist and Ebay that seem to be selling for pretty close to the original price, the same as iPhones. What you might want to consider is how your boyfriend will feel having bought you what most would think is an extremely generous gift and your main consideration is if you should keep it and sell it later (for a better one or if you should return it and wait till a better one comes out.) If you wait til the next better one comes out you'll never have what you want.
lol im in the same situation. I would just open it. I was pondering it too and i decided that it really doesn't matter. iPad 2 won't be much different. Some accessories like a camera which i dont even need
My boyfriend is totally cool with anything...we are Mac fans so he understands the dilemma people are facing!
I'd keep it . It's a great thing. You can use your iPhone for face time and taking pictures (which makes more sense to me anyways). You won't be sorry.
Not sure why anyone would wait, there is no official date for the next iPad. There is also nothing more than rumors about features, so you might find there next one has nothing you wanted any way.
Bought my wife one as well and she didn't even consider waiting. There is nothing to be gained spending several more months without one.

There is a nice piece on TED describing what you are going through.
I would recommend watching it, and then you should decide. ( It is a must see !!)
Bottom line. Keep it . use it, and enjoy it

Agreed. I would just keep it and have fun with it.
