    will the next Ipad be announced/released?

    I really would like to get an Ipad, was considering the new ipod touch but I’m leaning more towards the Ipad now.

    but here is my problem, I don’t want to get a new exciting ipad around xmas time only for the next version to be released shortly afterwards as I cant afford to buy two in quick succession!

    So, and obviously this is just going to be personal opinion, how soon into the new year (or maybe before but its unlikely!) do you think the next ipad will be released? Just so I can decide if it’s worth waiting for!

    Thanks

    Chris

    If the current ipad came out in April 2010, I'd look for the new one in April 2011. And I wouldn't expect an announcement until March, any sooner and current Pad sales grind to a halt while everyone waits for the new one.

    Apple hasnt said, so we dont know. All we have are guesses based on a clue here or there.

    There is only one person who knows when the next generation iPad will be released --

    ...and he's not talking!

    Even though this is an Apple iPad forum, we are in no way associated with the Apple company.

    I think G.P's guess is likely to be pretty close to the mark - late Q1 '11 i'd guess.. At the earliest.

    Buy it now and sell it on ebay in six months time. You won't regret it.

    March is quite far off (i know thats not the actual date or anything but apple do tend to do things anually dont they) but I might have to wait! I reckon the next one will have a load of new and cool features :) fingers crossed anyway!

    But when you get that one, there will be a new one coming a year after that...

    ChrisBass,
    I agree with you...I would wait til the next one comes out. Buy it and use it for a year. If another new one comes out a year later...sell yours and get the newer one. I would not buy the current one knowing that the next may have a USB port. This is the only reason I am waiting. The second generation pad will probably be better than the current one.

    There's and old story of a surgeon in the late 1800s who refused to buy a camera because it wasn't perfected enough. Every time there was a new one out he refused it because it still wasn't good enough. The man died of old age having never used a camera. No one knows what he looked like...

    that was my thinking, i get what you are all saying about a new one coming out each year, but as i dont desperately need one at the moment (who does?!) i may as well wait and get the newest one i can! at least then it'll be the latest one for a year and not just a few months!

    and if the new one has a usb port (not sure it will be we can hope) then i really would kick myself!

    oh, and one other thing, if it was a choice between an ipod touch and an ipad which would you go for? i know they are different and do divfferent things but if you had to choose which is better/more useful/or you just prefer?

    thanks, i'm almost done with the questions now!

    I think the iPad is infinitely more useful. More powerful apps can be written for the iPad because of the screen size. The downside is that its not as portable. You have to decide what is more important to you - portability or more functionality.

    Just bite the bullet and get the iPad now. Unless the next gen has things you can't live without, you will still be using it.

    You're just cheating yourself out of quality time to spend with an iPad.

    Based on the history of other iDevices, the only new feature it will have is more storage, which I am finding impossible to fill.

    If you want one get one now! It's gonna be at least 2 years before there are ant significant changes. Even iPod touch took 4 gens just to get a camera!

    I wouldn't expect significant upgrades in the next generation of Ipads. Apple can't stuff EVERYTHING in the second go around, or you'd have no incentive to upgrade to generation 3 when the time comes around. You can 'probably' bet on an upgrade from 256 to 512 ram( why they didn't do this the first time I'll never know, probably goes back to my 'keep em coming back for more' theory), and cameras. You have to decide if those features are worth it to you.

    The nice thing about Apple products, is that they have great resell potential. There are people I know selling their 3rd gen ipod touches for a decent amount of money to upgrade to 4th gen. I doubt you'd have much trouble selling the current pad down the line, if you feel the pressing urge to upgrade the next time around. In the meantime I'd go ahead and buy with confidence, and worry about enjoying the pad to the fullest today, and let tomorrow take care of itself. It is, afterall, promised to no-one... :)

    I think I might hang on to be honest, I think extra ram and storage would seal the deal and I'm in no desperate hurry to get one!
