    SCORE!!!!!

    They did a lot better than many had predicted. I am surprised at two cameras, and there are a lot of minor improvements. The wireless file transfer is huge, and a lot of people will be happy about the 1080p.

    I find it all rather underwhelming honestly. It is a nice refresh, but aside from the desperately needed processor bump I don't see much to make me want to ditch my existing model.

    Did Apple mention what the system RAM is going to be?

    ipad2 4.3 hot spot question

    i have iphone 4 with verizon - can i get away with buying just the wifi version of IPAD2?
    meaning, if my phone is on me , i can get service on ipad 2 without cellular connectivity ?

    I think the upgrades/refresh are major enough...no i didnt see what the RAM was..im guessing at least double the original ipad 256mb so its more thn likely 512mb's at least. Ill check.

    But with the new software up date you should be able to do that with the older model ..

    Exactly, u are very smart. Thats the way to go. No need for 3g version if u already have hotspot capabilities with ur iphone4. YES, ipad2 wifi version will easily connect to ur hotspot and ur good to go. Great question as im sure others would love to know also.
