    Shall I buy an Ipad now or wait?

    Hi everyone,

    I'm Darren from the UK.

    I have been waiting for ages now to get myself either an Ipad or the galaxy tab 10.1.

    Having waited for a while it seems the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 is exclusive to Vodafone, the motorola will be overpriced and then there's the rumours of the Ipad 2.

    I'm starting to run out of patience, when do we think this Ipad 2 will be released? Or shall I just get the Ipad now?

    Finally, will I be able to get the Ipad 2 for 450ish?

    Really want help guys!

    Darren

    I can't answer all of your questions but I've just bought an iPad 64gb wifi last week and I love it.
    Not sure on 450 for one of the new ones but it depends on what size you need/want?
    If you had to buy one today which one would you get?

    Wifi 16GB probably - It's just a hard decision with people saying CPW sold out is due to the very soon announcement.

    aren't we all

    here in the UK, it's more than likely we'll see the ipad in the summer. and, it's more than likely to have a camera and faster processor that the current ipad doesn't. if this doesn't bother you then go buy the ipad 1 now. whichever, the current ipad is still ahead of it's competition by a considerable margin, like it or not

    Costings will probably be on par with current ipad 1 costs.




    i too am from the uk and eagerly awaiting the new ipad2. and because the expected advances are considerable over the ipad 1, i'll be eagerly waiting even further.

    Uk release would be in June if they stagger the release like last time.
    If you can hold out that long that would be your best choice, but the current model will continue to work as well as it does now.
    Personally I'm not a great fan of delayed gratification so I'd buy one tomorrow and worry about upgrading when the time comes. That's if you can get the model you want before stocks run out......

    Wait

    From all appearances it will be a short wait.

    I would wait, personally. But can you? And for how long ~ is the million dollar question.
