    Launch of the new iPad is just hours away.

    Thoughts and curiosities....

    1) I'm guessing it will be called "iPad 2" with March 2 as launch day being no coincidence.

    2) Price point. Will Apple go the low price route with iPad2 and save most of the rumored features for iPad3?

    3) Will Steve Jobs actually be there?

    4) I predict the story of the day will be the price. I wrote about why here.

    Apple will NOT lower the price. In fact IMO it will go higher than the ipad 1. The ipad sold like crazy so why lower the price. The biggest question is; is the ipad2 going to be a big improvement or a let down with marginal changes?

    First they aren't even calling it the iPad 2. That tells you right there there isn't that much difference.

    They are calling it something like the iPad for 2011 or something similar. Differences are hard to get a handle on. Most of what I see is still speculation. The announcement hasn't been made yet.

    they'll probably just call it the 'iPad'.

    it's the rest of us that'll know it by ipad 2 or 2nd gen ipad. much like the Touch series.

    Exactly. We will refer to iPads in year models. What year is your iPad? :)

    For those not watching one of the live chats during the event...

    Steve Jobs just announced it will be called "iPad 2"

    Same exact pricing structure even with all new features

    Faster processor A5, camera, thinner, lighter.

    Shipping March 11th
