    Ipad2/ ipad1

    All the discussions seem to be ipad2 related now,even in general discussions,there is an ipad 2 dedicated forum,so is the iPad 1 discussions obsolete now ? As an ipad1 user who cannot afford or justify an iPad 2 I feel a little lost ,Can we have an ipad1 dedicated forum as well please for those like me who are not rich enough,slightly jealous but contented with the original.

    The two Sets of discussions are somewhat separated. There isn a separate iPad 2 sub-forum, where all Pad 2 only discussions belong. Ideally any discussion outside that sub-forum would be about the iPad 1. However, the two devices are in many ways similar, so it is difficult to separate them completely.

    A series of unlucky coincidences led me to have both :-)

    On a more serious note, many people who live with a partner or have a family will have multiple devices but not necessarily all of the same generation. I have heard of many, who bought an iPad 1 and now pass that one on to their spouse after buying an iPad 2.

    No worries. There are still plenty of us iPad 1 users here. There are still plenty of commonalties to keep us all talking here in the general discussion. Plus, there are other sections like apps, OS, etc. I'm in the camp of just got my iPad 1 four months ago and not about to upgrade as I see no point. I don't mind hearing about the 2 as it interests me in general. I saw it and tested it out on display and felt just as happy with my 1. If I really want to, I could get the 2, but I don't see the need. It's a choice for me more than a money issue. And testing it out, it was just like using the 1 anyway, not a huge night and day difference-faster, but only noticeable if you're looking for that unless you're using a high power graphic app. Me-soon as I got home and was on my own iPad, I didn't even notice. Made no practical difference to my use. Hence, no upgrade for me anytime soon. And leaves both enough in common to keep us all talking. I think the separate 2 forum started more to do with the pre-arrival excitement and of course stays now its own section, even though a lot of 2 subjects end up in general. Perhaps down the pike, we'll see a separate forum section also broken down for 1 users.

    I have the iPad 1 also. I've played with the 2 in best buy, but still can't see a real reason to upgrade. I like the idea of the cameras, but really don't use the one on my iPhone too much either. As for speed, I didn't see that much of a difference. At least not enough to want to upgrade. I think we should be able to have discussions that cover both devices, unless it involves the use if the cameras, or something else that only the iPad 2 can do.

    Nice to be able to do that,as my misses is not techno minded and I said , "here have my ipad1 so I can buy an ipad2 " the only thing that would pass is a left hook followed by a swift kick to the lower region. DOH!!
