    I really think Apple excluded the cam initially cause they didn't think the device would find such widespread use. Now, to keep the momentum, they have to add the cam cause of public demand.

    I know, just makin a point. ;-). I use to solely download free stuff. Saw no use to pay for apps if free ones avalaible. Once i got my ipad, i had plenty of free apps tomchoose from. But the ones i really wanted cost. I dished out n paid for apps. Funny how apple requires u to enter in credit card or bank card info to activate ipad. Lol. Either way, Apple is smart. I just see thru their b.s. On the hardware side. All that said, My ipad is my favorite device of all time, so far. I never use the desktop anymore. Soo many useful apps. In themright hands, the ipad is Deadly. ;-). Lol

    I'm sorry if this has already been discussed, but what about the rumors (from Digitimes too) of the second-gen iPad "adopting a new ARM Cortex-A9-based processor and 512MB RAM"? Any truth to this? Cos' if this were true, then I would most likely wait till this comes out before buying an iPad.

    Rumors rumors rumors you just have to wait until apple announces what is new at one of the many conferences around the world. No one really knows until then what apple really has up their sleeve

    The next iPad won't see light for another 6 months even *IF* this report is true, the current gen will have been available for at least a year in the various markets before the next gen becomes available in them.

    I'm due a new phone the middle of next year, but depending on tone of the first Apple keynote of 2011 i'll judge my iPhone4 (or more likely iPhone4.5) purchase on that.

    Educated consumerism ;)

    No way - If the public really thought a new iPad was going to be released in early 2011 - it would kill holiday purchases unless they discounted the current iPad - and we all know they've learned their lesson on that song.

    This is the best post I have seen in here. Seriously. And it actually makes sense! How, though, "have they learned their lesson on that one", David?

    Enlighten me ~

    Good points people. Next generation has to have dual cams or 1 that can swivel from front to back, better or updated processor, minimum 512 memory or even better go 1 or 2 gig(now we talkin..lmao), and to stop making ipad so reliant on desktop itunes. I hate loading that up. Backups n restores take soooo long..gosh..i wanna use my ipad. Or at least find faster way of doing it. Mod. Is right though, these are rumours. The other person is probaly right also, that itll be at least 6 months b4 another release. There would be outrage unless they released early n let people trade in original model for it. Im all for that as long as its free or for small charge. Still doesnt make to much since though. They could loose out on money for the ipads already built or in stock at warehouses if new one pops on the scene. Maybe they rushed the release of the original version. Couod have easily waited or just released a 512 ram, dual cam ipad with multitasking the first time around.
