    bestbuy and ipad 2

    Hi everyone,
    Thanks for your help in my previous post. I returned My IPad that i got for Christmas, and was waiting for the IPad 2. Now I read that Bestbuy and the big box retailer will not have access for 6 months, and that they will only be sold from apple until at least October? I have a bestbuy gift card...so this helps me none! Regardless, do you think that that this is a valid "rumor"? If so I am going to just go and buy another ipad…

    Thanks again for your replies!

    Not really sure why you would do that....but hey I guess you can always keep chasing the latest trend...even tho you know have to wait a year for it.

    You can always sell the BestBuy gift card and lose a few dollars -

    I didn’t return it to chase trends. To me it just made more sense to hold off for 2 months if I was going to get something that was functionally going to be better for “me” (dual core, higher resolution screen, sd card functionality, being the big three). However, if is going to be 8 months, then I do not want to wait that long. My question is, do any of you think the rumor of apple being the only retailer for the first 6 months to sell these a viable one? I have a bestbuy card, which I am pretty sure Apple will not honor!

    Where have you seen that the iPad 2 will have a dual-core CPU and higher resolution screen?

    google.

    Lot’s of information available as to what it is supposed to include. I guess it is economically unfeasible for a retina display ipad, but supposedly it is going to include some type of HD screen. I understand that everything is speculation at this point, but let’s be realistic and assume that it is going to have certain upgrades to meet demands and pressure from other tablets. It will for certain have an upgraded chip.

    From what understand you are correct the iPad 2 will not be sold for at least 6-8 months at any other retailers until apple sells it directly for awhile! Good luck

    Sadly that is all rumor and speculation until it is confirmed. So sadly you could be waiting 8 months for a larger internal memory and maybe a camera (no promises tho.)

    There is no chance there will be a dual core CPU involved since that would make the 1st gen obsolete and considering it is still fairly new and getting adopted and developers are just getting used to programming for it, it would be pretty stupid to go there so soon. It already includes an HD screen and the panel they use is very very high end top of the line. If they do decide on an SD card (and again its unlikely) it will only be to replace the camera kit...not for extra storage.

    Basically as far as I can tell the only reason to get the iPad 2 at this point is to have it on Verizon (as there is very strong belief it will be dual band...tho that is still rumor as well...but at least its believable!)

    If you want it, get it....if the new one is monumental and groundbreaking sell the current one (Apple products strongly hold their value) and buy the new one. I'd be pretty pissed tho if I gave someone an iPad for christmas and they returned it.....that would be the last nice gift that person got from me.

    Gentlefury,

    You were thinking just what I was thinking.......

    "I'd be pretty pissed tho if I gave someone an iPad for christmas and they returned it.....that would be the last nice gift that person got from me."

    Parents might have gave it to him......he is a Griswold after all.....

    My parents buy gifts for my children not me, considering I am a grown man. My wife bought it for me, being the great wife she is, gave me the option of doing what I want with it, because she knew I was pontificating on waiting until April to getting the newer generation, or possibly getting the “speculated” iphone for Verizon if it was released. Those pesky internet speculators appeared to be right on that one.

    However, to the both of you, it is really no concern of yours what I do with my possessions or money, and think it quite ignorant and arrogant for you to judge me or what I do with it. It is not your concern.

    Why would they even release a new ipad if it does not have any improvements? Even the successive Iphones have speed improvements. One would think that Ipad would be more aggressive, due to it competing with computers and other Android based tablets, lending to a better processor to assist in multi-tasking.

    Of course it is going to have a better processor and more ram. You would be silly to think it would not. An original Ipad is also not going to hold as much value once a new version of an ipad is released.
