I was joking. The next generation iPads will come out in spring of 2011.
I think it'll be the same. With the touch and the iPad running the same os makes me kinda regret th
Hehe maybe apple is going to charge for the update and figures it will sting less if it is half a year later. If they put it out now, then they would have to give it free to everyone.
I'm still not an Ipad owner, but I'm surprised by the reaction here. I would have thought everyone would be stoked. To me it makes sense. Look at the chronology. They first developed the Iphone OS, then released the Iphone and eventually the Ipod touch. They tweaked the OS for the Ipad, while at the same time developing 4.0 for the Iphone. 4.0 is finished, now they tweak it again for the Ipad.
Remember, there are millions of Iphone/Ipod touch users, who have been waiting for 4.0 longer than you. Just be happy, you are getting multi-tasking this fall. This is good news! Why act like this is a disappointment?
First off, Apple rarely charges for updates on the iPhone OS and this would be a freebie for the iPad. Second, remember that the iPad OS already has some of the features of the 4.0 OS.
