Got my original iPad shortly after it came out. Early two years ago.
When iPad 2 came out I was able to sell the original to a friend and so the upgrade to the second version was easier on the pocket.
The screen shattered while in South America so have just replaced it with a new iPad 2.
Apple said screen cannot be repaired...is that really so? Sounds like a bit of a con to me but there you are...
Have seen iPad new version, decided the difference to iPad 2 was not worth upgrading.
I'm waiting for the wow factor for future releases, this new one is ok if you're a gamer...not for thanks.
