    Hi I am new to this forum and just saying Hi! I do not have an Ipad yet but am going to get one. Is the rumor of an Ipad 3 in December coming from a reliable source? I would hate to get an Ipad 2 now with a new one coming out in a few months.

    That's all they are at present - rumours. It would be unlike Apple to do this - their normal product cycle is longer but - yes - there have been rumours - many reported on this Forum, so have a look at the threads that discuss this. You'll have to make up your own mind if you think they're credible.

    Hi there,
    Before you make your decision to wait for the 3 maybe figure out what it is you want it to do? I waited painstakingly for the 2 and am not fussed about later editions. The 2 does everything I need it to do and I guess once the 3 is out there will be a chance of a 4 so you could be waiting a while. The 2 is brilliant, I love it, I don't leave home without it. You won't be disappointed with the 2.

    Yeah, it's a bit like that. The same thing is happening with the new iPhone 5 that is supposed to hit the stores. People are waiting but without any definitive words on it's appearance into the market. I have the 4 which is a brilliant companion with the iPad 2 and feel well equipped and mobile.
    Wouldn't give either of them up.

    Thanks for the input. I agree you could just keep waiting until the next model... Well I took the plunge and got the iPad 2. Man this thing is fun. I got a 32 gb black with 3G.

    Waiting on the i5 first, then later an iPad 3. I just got my first iPad so I'm in no real hurry to upgrade at the moment.
