So it is 512MB RAM after all, which is fine, but I really wished they upgraded that to 1GB instead.
Me too. Also, it is clear that Apple simply didn't want Siri on iPad 2.
Still, it is the form factor of this device that attracts me the most. I do wish it had at least the A5X chip in iPad 3 and a retina display. I guess I will decide for myself when I see it...but I'm already loving the size and lightness of this device.
