Whlist the iPad 2 is great value I am OK with the original because I also have the iPod touch 4.
Facetime for me is a lot more practical with the 'touch. I use it everyday and just love it.
Still, I wouldn't mind the latest version, but feel that Apple has done the right thing in giving new iPad users enough but not too much to p*ss off the 15 million user base.
So, all in all it's great news.
