    That being said i would like a camera built in though that would'nt convince me to sell. Better processor and graphical capabilities would be great however. The iPad does everything I want out of a tablet really and it'll be a few gen's before I upgrade most likely.

    I need more than a few updates to the hardware if anyone wants to win me over. I think theres major improvement room software wise however, but that can be taken care of through firmware updates.

    I still cannot wait to see the future of tablet however, im starting to see some impressive looking windows 7 stuff coming out lately. If they can marry the Zune HD interface and OS happily with w tablet that may convince me however!
    I can't really tell the difference on my 42" screen.

    How about a retina display? That would make reading a better experience!

    Not everyone can. Personally I can tell the difference on my 36" Samsung but that's only because I really only use it for gaming and sit like 4 feet away sometimes closer. Terrible for my eyes I know but if i sat a proper distance I probably wouldn't be able to tell lol.

    It really saddens me when I see people out buying 20" tv's for the kitchen that cost hundreds of pounds more because they do 1080p which will be completely indestinguishable from 720p on such a small screen.

    Unfortunately we live in a world where MANY MANY people like to pay the stupid consumer tax lol.

    Also just wanted to mention whilst in the Apple store the other day I checke dou the iPhone 4 and have to say I foudn the "Retina" display to be VERY unimpressive. People weer touting this thing as if it were god's grace to screen types but when I pulled out my Zune HD and put it next to the OLED screen on the Zune BLEW THE RETINA AWAY. Now that's just my oppinion but I felt that I could actually see the pixels on the retina display and that while it was brighter that the older screens that OLED still had more vibrant color's and more pop to it.

    OLED is also much more battery efficient. The iPad would seriously benefit from an OLED screen. however I only looked that the retina screen for a few minutes and with more play time my oppinion may have changed but I did squeeze in a game of plants vs zombies and yeah I just don't know.

    Right now I still personally love the OLED screens. End rant lol.

    Upgrading computer hardware has been an issue since computers became available and will continue to be an issue in the future. It's only a matter of time. Something better will always come along. By then, it's just deciding if you've gotten enough use out of what you purchased and the cost vs. value ratio is for a new purchase.

    The iPad might be the best at what it does, but that won't always be the case. I rarely have "top of the line" hardware, but I do try to keep up with what's currently out.

    So, yes, I'll buy what's new--but not sure if it will be as soon as it comes out. (I just bought my iPad a few weeks ago, not when it was introduced.)

    I wouldn't consider replacing my iPad until I've had some time to work with it running OS4. I would also have to consider what new features a 2nd gen iPad would have. I don't do a lot of video / camera stuff and I already have a kick-ass dlsr -- holding up an iPad to take a pic would seem a bit awkward.

    My current iPad seems fast enough and I have enough storage for what I need to do (64gb).
    Most probably tapped on my iPad!

    For those considering selling, all I can say is thank God for Ebay..

    And regarding higher resolution, your right, I don't think I will see the difference..

    I don't even rent blu Ray anymore cause I can't see the difference and also cuz I can get DVD for a buck now..

    I'm on the fence right now for waiting until a new IPad is announced to purchase next year. Almost got one, but the competition will be interesting later this year and early next.

    I would like more than 256 mb of video memory ( More like 512 or 1 GB ) and have a USB input. Camera is not needed for my needs, but OS4 would be nice as well.

    When someone mentions 1080P with a tablet, they are talking about the ability to use the HDMI out port and display 1080P on your television. The iPad can only display 480P out on its VGA dongle which you have to pay extra for. The standard for tablets is going to be 720P screens in 16x9, so that if you watch a movie or a television show, you dont have to stare at a third of your screen being wasted on black bars.

    I will sell the iPad if a functional 10" Android or Windows Compact 7 tablet emerges with a capacitive screen and a good battery life. Only had the iPad for a month or so, and I love it, but the entire Apple dealy is getting annoying and tiring already. I don't like the app centric nature of the iPad. The underlying OS is garbage, and needs apps to compensate for it. The problem with that is that you need separate programs to accomplish basic functions. On Android for example, you can speak to text in EVERY program and EVERY part of the OS. Sure, you can do it in certain programs on the iOS device, but BFD, as soon as I go to browse the web or type a text, etc, etc etc the feature disappears.
