haha i asked the exact same thing a few days ago. Ive decided to go ahead and wait for the ipad 3. The recent rumours say a Thanksgiving release maybe - iPhone 5 expected in September & iPad 3 expected in November, could it be true? | iPad 3 Release Date
Im going to use my tablet mostly for watching movies, tv shows on my way to work, and catching up with emails on the train. The iPad 3 seems a better choice for anyone wanting to use the tablet for media viewing. The iPad 3 will more than likely have a hd screen, double the pixels of the ipad 2, and is a huge selling point for consumers like me.
You can always say 'then you will be waiting for ipad 4.....' BUT i think a HD screen is quite a big ugrade and definitely worth the wait
Let us know how that iPad 3 works for you. Like everyone else, I won't get mine until they come out next year.
Buy it! Just like someone else posted, as soon as the 3 comes out, you'll be hearing about the 4.
Timleffler - I not getting your point, what are you trying to say? Kidding. There will always be a better, faster, newer shinier model. It depends on what you are going to use it for. People always ask me what smartphone to get and I ask them in return what they will use It for - email, calendar and contacts? Camera? Well they all have that so just get the current one. Point is if you are not going to care if it's HD or thinner or lighter by 5% than just go out tomorrow and get one! If you are very technical or advanced then wait for the later and greatest...
If there was a new model coming out in September, I would wait. But, we don't know that and it could be next April before you get your hands on an newer iPad. Despite the hype, there really isn't that much difference between the iPad 1 and the 2, and the 2 has only been out for a few months. It's all debugged and ready to go. :)
