    Well, I won't be getting one. I was hoping the display would be a Retina or something close to it. That, and the shape....I thought the edges would be squared off but they're curved/tapered. I guess I was expecting it to look like a large iPhone 4. Maybe next year.

    I hope there are lots of people that feel that the IPad 1 is just fine for them, that will insure I have a good market to sell mine to after my IPad 2 arrives.

    While I don't have the need to upgrade my iPad 1, it's definitely a win for new iPad buyers being that it's the same price as the original...

    I do wish they would have at least included SD or even better USB!

    I have said nothing but negative things about the Xoom, what are you talking about? If you are gonna make things up why not just go crazy and have me defending the Augen as a competitor to the iPad2??
    Take a chill pill buddy, i was only kidding. I remember ur posts. Sheesh..lol

    Agree. I was surprised not to see some sort of game demo that showed the potential of the new HW. The movie app was impressive but I would have liked to see something that knocked my socks off!
    Watch this:

    HP TouchPad shoots down planes, shows off next-gen Snapdragon's GPU (video) -- Engadget

    And realize that its using a dumpy Adreno 220 GPU. The iPad2 has a monster of a GPU in it. I know because my phone runs the version just below what the iPad 2 has. Games will far surpass what that tablet is shown doing.
    x-plane on ipad1 looks wayyy better thn that. U right, that game blows..lol. I was not impressed at all n supposedly running off of 1.2GHz new dual core snapdragon. They have a long way to go to compete even with ipad1 gamimg, let alome the ipad2. Good example!

    For me, I definitely wont be buying even if a pile of money falls in my lap. ipad 1 is fast enough for me, have no use for a camera to take pictures and I hate video chat. Could care less about thinness or weight as I currently keep mine in an otterbox. ONly way I would upgrade is if the increased the top capacity to at least 128gb. Will the HDMI adapter work with ipad 1? And one other question, I've only seen the rear camera resolution said to be 720p, what is the resolution in megapixels?

    I was just reading in AppAdvice that the HDMI adapter WILL work with the iPad 1 AND touch 4g, etc!

    Personally I think the Ipad 2 looks damn sexy. Looking forward to seeing it in person next week. Waiting for the Ipad 3 to come out.

    I'm buying one.
    Wasn't certain I would beforehand, but the improved chip, ram and graphics make it a certainty.
    The slimmer shape and cameras just add to the package.
