    As an App Developer, I am suffering from the design flaws of iPad I. 256MB of memory for a screen with resolution of 1024x768 surely is not enough. I am switching to iPad 3 myself as soon as it releases. Who's with me? ;)

    The problem is iOS 5. I was happy with iPad 1 before that. Bummer that we can't downgrade firmware.

    I don't know about iPad 3, because I also have an iPad 2. Depends on the features and functions. I have an Apple gift card to burn, though.

    I love my iPad 1, too. I have a ipad 2, 'cause I have to test my apps on it. iPad 2 is way better than iPad 1. And the apps never crash on iPad 2 for "lack of memory" issues. I just hope more people will switch to iPad 2 or iPad 3. So I don't have to consider iPad 1 any more... I know I am selfish to say this. But really, 256MB of memory is not enough for such a big screen.

    Me---- but I will say I'm not one bit sorry I bought my Ipad 1 when it came out. It has changed totally how I use a computer (for one thing it is always with me in my Rickshaw Ipad bag and I would never carry my laptop in such a casual every day way). As I said in another thread my laptop has had a very long rest, my PC is now the "niche" computer being used primarily for Photoshop/Lightroom and big jobs in Office. I also believe the Ipad has surpassed with third party apps anything Apple anticipated.

    Its apparent gen one can't handle everything in IOS 5 and personally I think Apple should have limited it for Ipad 1 but then look what happened with 'gestures' and they put it back in (though I have mine turned off as I do with a lot of IOS 5 options)--there would have been a terrible hue and cry. I for one don't want Ipad 2 and 3 crippled because gen 1 can't handle it. I have a number of friends with Ipad 1 who almost never crash but then they don't push theirs as I do. So, on to Ipad 3 for me and my Ipad 1 will take over my Rhapsody chores as my aging Touch is---aging LOL.

    Still satisfied with my ipad 1. Well since I use it mainly for presentation, watch movies and browsing, the lack of memory isn't a big deal.
    As for gaming, I only enjoy PC games. Just by looking at batman arkham city and battlefield 3 on my PC, I realize that no mobile games can satisfy me with such graphic. My eyes are spoiled with such thing that I dont think I can enjoy games below that quality.
    As for mobile games, I only play the ones that can be played multiplayer on the same device, and as far as I know any games like that can still be handled perfectly. So about ipad 2 or the upcoming 3, haven't think about upgrading.

    I agree but the more demands I put on my first gen is forcing me to look at the iPad 2, but I'm going to wait until the 3 is announced and most likely buy an ipad2 refurb and save a few bucks. Also, I'm hoping the price will drop even more when the 3 launches

    Tablet technology is changing fast. Apple is staying ahead of the competition but the newness of the genre is going to make it a rapid transition medium. Think of how fast the iPhone has changed from the beginning, and now the field is more competitive. The iPad is going to be the same. I plan on getting the iPad 3 providing it has the bulk of the main features reported. I love my iPad, but it is the apps that make it work. The biggest issue I have is that a lot of the apps do not show a lot of means for effective feedback, nor flexibility in how they function.
