    If people had done their research they would have found out that historically Apple releases their iPad in the March/April time frame and iPhone in the June/July (except for the 4S) time frame. It's thier fault they took so long to get the device or didn't wait until the next release. Like another member posted, skip generations, that's what I typically do.

I hope for their sake (and mine) the Ipad 2 will still have some good resale value. The iPad has agreat design and build quality anda brilliant on screen typing interface (I can type 10 words a minute more on the iP compared to Samsung tab
    because its easier to touch type on the iPad an also offers better predictive texting),however, I just feel the iPad is geared to constanly part you with your cash as its very app driven and quite restrictive (e.g. flash). The Samsung tab much better replicates the feel of a desktop computer.

    I suppose the main positive of iPad 3 if rumors are well foundedwill be that it may be quad core and use a retina screen and supposedly offer 4 times ipad 2's resolution, assuming the official pricewillbe around the 400 mark.
    I have no interest in a tablet that replicates the feel of a desktop PC.

    I like my iPads a lot, but I don't think they're a good fit for everyone. And if I thought something were immoral and too restrictive, I sure wouldn't pay good money for it, because that would defy common sense.

    As for upgrades: As long as a device meets your needs, it's not outdated.

    As for companies wanting to part us from our cash: That's what every business wants. Some are just better at it than others.

    The same is true with technology. And if you do feel the need to upgrade with every new device release, that's a choice you make.

    I agree with you. But I also agree with the poster who suggests that you upgrade, or seriously think about upgrading, when a new OS is released, since this may affect the usability of the device you have in hand.

    Being new to iDevices, (recovering Crackberry addict ) I guess that's a lesson I've yet to learn. But technically when a new OS is released, doesn't the OS that came with your device still function? So you're not losing functionality you're just not gaining?

    FYI I don't have the courage to put iOS5
    on my iPad2 after almost bricking my iPhone 4 while installing the upgrade.
