I myself did wait for the iPad2 and will purchase it. yes, it has the same resolution as the iPad1 but that thing looks beautiful to me. everytime i have gone in best buy and used it for a while, my friend has one and it's beautiful. i waited for the cameras, had no idea about the newly upgraded processor and the incredible bump to the graphics for games and such and of course the 1080p output is really sweet. I also have close to 200 in BB rewardzone points/dollars so i'm gonna put that towards the 64gb unit. i've waited long enough. i'm sure the next one will have the display most folks are griping about (i do understand, you want what you want) and some other, new things. for me, the thinner, lighter version, with the cameras, dual core and stuff that's being offered on the 2 is more than enough to make me not wait any longer to get an iPad.
best of luck to those getting the 3, i'm getting mine Now --actually more like closer to the end of this month!
