    So I am thinking about getting an ipad2. I was all set to put my order in at the apple store when I came across things online, saying the ipad 3 will be out in the fall.
    I dont know if its true or not but now I am on the fence. What do you guys think?

    it would make no sense for apple to come out with a ipad3 when they havent made all the money they can on the ipad2... why make something new when the current product is still sold out and in great demand

    I've been a fan of apple gadgets for years and from my experience they would only release a new version of a certain device yearly.

    for some reason i am very patient when it comes to most electronics and waiting for an upgrade, such as i have not bought gaming console myself since ps2 but for some reason i just have to have the newest apple stuff.

    Not to mention i dont own an ipad 1, i was a couple weeks away from getting one when the ipad2 was announced.

    any why is the ipad3 so popular with everyone? why not wait for the 4 or 5??

    buy what you can today, else you'll always be waiting and wanting. stuff is updated all the time anyway, so whatever you buy wont stay current for too long.

    that is the worst part about electronics. Buy it and the technology will be outdated within 6 months.

    The best plan for me is to do the "every other." Meaning i will get the ipad 2 skip the 3 and then get the 4.

    This is madness. Madness I tell you.

    Buy it if you want it.
    It's only been out for a couple of months so it will have a resale value when you want to upgrade.

    I think that the screen is the nubmer one thing I would like to see upgraded in a future version of iPad, and according to the rumors I read (no, sorry, don't remember the source) Samsung won't be able to deliver retina displays until 2014.

    Do if you like the iPad 2 buy it, if it's not good enough, wait :)

    I dont have any ipad at all right now.

    I know that like all electronics a newer better version is to follow. I just always want newest/best when i buy.

    I think I may just go with the ipad 2, as googling ipad 3 comes up with as many not a chance hits about the ipad 3 in fall as it does saying it is coming.

    Now just need to decide on a size. thinking the 32gb. 16gb seems to small
