    Buy both. Return whichever you don't prefer. No dilemma.

    There is a rumor out that the iPad 2 will become the intro version of the iPad with only 8 GB storage. Based on iPhone history, this would make sense. A price of $299 would be a big bargain way of getting one, but more likely to be $399. The same rumor mill is also saying that the iPad 3 will only come in 16 and 32 GB versions. This is not a believable rumor since there is already solid indications of three storage levels in each model of the iPad 3.

    Another analysis of the information available is that the new iPad will support 1080 video and the AppleTV is being upgraded with a new processor and ability to handle 1080 video. It is important to remember that there could be a lot more or less to the presentation next week than the rumors tell us.

    I've seen all the rumors and haven't taken any seriously. I'm fine with not knowing till specs are announced. I'm interested, but not overwrought, lol.

    This would be really nice not having to convert all my HD videos to MP4s just to use them on the iPad.

    The iPad supports more than one video format.

    • H.264 video up to 720p, 30 frames per second, Main Profile level 3.1 with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
    • MPEG-4 video, up to 2.5 Mbps, 640 by 480 pixels, 30 frames per second, Simple Profile with AAC-LC audio up to 160 Kbps, 48kHz, stereo audio in .m4v, .mp4, and .mov file formats;
    • Motion JPEG (M-JPEG) up to 35 Mbps, 1280 by 720 pixels, 30 frames per second, audio in ulaw, PCM stereo audio in .avi file format.
    The higher resolution will not change that very much.

    When I got my iPad 2 I wanted a black one in the worst way, but a white one showed up first. I was afraid it would look like an appliance, but it doesn't. I like it, and will get a white one next time, if I have a choice.

    But does this theory hold any truth, that with white borders you distinctly have the borders in the back of your mind, but with Black it gels with the image, Video hence making you feel of watching a bigger image/video (maybe a illusion, but yes)

    That's taken as a given by TV geeks and is my experience as well...not so much the size but the floating screen effect A dark border recedes and can be ignored when you watch video on the display, whereas the white border is always "there," framing the image I realize there's kind of an Apple snob factor to the white unit, but I definitely prefer black.

    A reliable source has been cited that there will be the same variety of colors and memory as before, and the prices will stay the same.
