Well, it'g got to be better then the Motorola Xoom. that features an 8 megapixel camera and a 1 megapixel video chat cameral It also features an 800.00 price tag.
But even if it's better then the Xoom I'm to cheap to purchase another iPad. Maybe in 2 years I might.
On second thought, that may be only a 5 megapixel camera on that Xoom. I remember thinking it's the same as on my D2.
I heard the 3G version will be available on verizon? That will be great!
I was excited until I found out it wasn't going to have any higher resolution screen. The iPhone4 screen absolutely blows away the iPad and I want my iPad to be similar. That one option would make me upgrade on day 1.
To me, the best part of the new iPad is the lighter weight and smaller size. Who cares about a camera if you have a smartphone? Most people who can afford a tablet already have a smartphone that is easier for video calling and photo taking.
As it is it is using the exact same panel that is used in HP's $2500 Pro grade Dream Color Display!
I think the iPad 2 is a basic upgrade because it was due. Apple could not get the high res screen available for full scale production in time, so they will have it on the iPad 3, with possible additional upgrades like a better camera and more RAM.
I was going to get the iPad 2 but it still won't have flash which I need so I opted for the Galaxy Tab, which has got cameras back & front.
Have we heard any SOLID information from a reliable source about upgrades fir the iPad 2?
I'm guessing, just based on Apple's upgrade paths, like others have said, this will be a minor upgrade. But they may just break tradition since they are getting so much competition this year. When all the other tablets are going to have higher resolution screens, dual core processors, etc, etc, they might just decide to do a complete rebuild.
Or maybe they will keep with their usual minor upgrade one year, major upgrade the next.
