    is iPad1 worth buying at $399 (16GB wifi)

    Even though I own a iPad2, I'm thinking about buying to iPad1 as a backup. At $399, should I wait until Xmas to see if the price drop any lower? I have a feeling iPad3 may be coming our near Xmas time.

    Also, will Apple soon fade iPad out like they did with iphone 2 when iPad 3 comes out?

    iPad 3 will not be out before xmas.

    Yeah its a great deal, if you want a back up then go for it

    if you have a wifi iPad 2? (i got 1 today (uk) but returning it tomorrow) you could get a 3G iPad 1 to use when you got out.

    Why returning your ipad 2m
    Life begins, and spirits rise,
    and they become memories that vaporize,
    and the vapor becomes the dreams we devise,
    and while we are dreaming...
    Time flies...

    Apple has stopped all production of the iPad 1 already so buying a new one will be impossible very shortly, i say a month from now.

    Id say less. 2-3 weeks if this discount trend keeps happening.

    Wow.. apple is moving fast. Will they still have support for ipad after next year or so?


    $299 at verizon seems like a super price to me for a ipad.

    I was going to keep it if the difference was really noticeable, been using it since half 5 ish and it still seems like using the 1st gen, though photo booth runs nice, FaceTime was nice but I'd hardly use them, still got iPad 1 which will do me until next year.

    The next 12 hours may change my opinion though!

    Have u got 1 yet?
