    Because of the Apple close mind, i decided to drop my iPad 1 and go to Android Honeycomb as i will be able to finally see Flash.
    Silverlight and/or Flash is a must have including extenal connection for space and transfer which Apple lacks on all that.

    What I think might affect sales of the iPad 2 is this subscription nonsense Apple is pulling. If Netflix and Amazon pull their apps, those are two monster selling points disappearing.

    Apple might be as controlling as Hitler, but they aren't stupid. They will work something out with Amazon and Netflix to keep them.

    Sorry, iPad 2 is the same size as iPad one. I wish it was a little smaller.

    Netflix is coming to pretty much all Android tablets since they use Tegra 2:

    "Netflix is using the Tegra 2 development platform to bring the Netflix experience to Android super phones and tablets. We're working closely with NVIDIA to ensure Netflix takes full advantage of Tegra's outstanding acceleration and security capabilities." -- Greg Peters, Vice President, Product Development at Netflix

    I won't be upgrading until 2012, probably when apple care runs out.

    At this moment in time, no. Just got mine end of last year. What IS attractive though, is the extra horsepower and more base memory:D Just not hitting the limits enough to justify at this stage of the game.

    I'm looking for the quantum leap. The current model meets my needs right now and it was a sizeable investment. Besides, I have two years of support to get through before thinking about doing anything different.
