I would not buy the current one knowing that the next may have a USB port. This is the only reason I am waiting. The second generation pad will probably be better than the current one.
    that was my thinking, i get what you are all saying about a new one coming out each year, but as i dont desperately need one at the moment (who does?!) i may as well wait and get the newest one i can! at least then it'll be the latest one for a year and not just a few months!

    and if the new one has a usb port (not sure it will be we can hope) then i really would kick myself!

    I think the iPad is infinitely more useful. More powerful apps can be written for the iPad because of the screen size. The downside is that its not as portable. You have to decide what is more important to you - portability or more functionality.

    Just bite the bullet and get the iPad now. Unless the next gen has things you can't live without, you will still be using it.

    You're just cheating yourself out of quality time to spend with an iPad.

    Based on the history of other iDevices, the only new feature it will have is more storage, which I am finding impossible to fill.

    If you want one get one now! It's gonna be at least 2 years before there are ant significant changes. Even iPod touch took 4 gens just to get a camera!

    I wouldn't expect significant upgrades in the next generation of Ipads. Apple can't stuff EVERYTHING in the second go around, or you'd have no incentive to upgrade to generation 3 when the time comes around. You can 'probably' bet on an upgrade from 256 to 512 ram( why they didn't do this the first time I'll never know, probably goes back to my 'keep em coming back for more' theory), and cameras. You have to decide if those features are worth it to you.

    The nice thing about Apple products, is that they have great resell potential. There are people I know selling their 3rd gen ipod touches for a decent amount of money to upgrade to 4th gen. I doubt you'd have much trouble selling the current pad down the line, if you feel the pressing urge to upgrade the next time around. In the meantime I'd go ahead and buy with confidence, and worry about enjoying the pad to the fullest today, and let tomorrow take care of itself. It is, afterall, promised to no-one...

    I think I might hang on to be honest, I think extra ram and storage would seal the deal and I'm in no desperate hurry to get one!
