    Well, my iPhone has all the things I could want my iPad to have, so I don't see the need of another camera: would be really clumsy to use too I think.

    nope. Wont jump to a 2nd gen. I dont see one coming out this year anyway. As long as they are having difficulty keeping up with supply, why roll out a new generation?

    I bought the iPad for what it is right now. I'll probably use it a couple of years at least. When I feel like I've had my money's worth from this one, I'll look at what else is on the market (should be several tablets by then I hope) and decide what next.

    I was deciding about waiting till 2nd Gen to buy one or get one now. And I think I am going to get one in August and get the new iPhone in August also. I don't care about a camera, I don't video chat and use a regular camera if I need pictures or always have my phone with me.

    I'll have every new gen and let the old gens trickle down to family and friends. That's what I do with my iPods and it builds a lot of social capital!

    I got the base 16GB iPad WiFi, and will probably get the 3G 64GB. I like the fast graphics and screen quality for viewing photos while on the road and even at home. I can view photos better on the iPad than on my MacBook Pro. Due to my many photos, I'm out of the 16GB memory now. When the 2nd gen iPad comes out, it depends on the new features, but so far, I like what iPad can do. It would be nice to get more connectivity (e.g. file sharing), but we'll see.

    I most likley will get the 2nd gen... It depends on what Apple adds, however, I'd be supprised if they werent able to get me! LOL I hope they learn a lot about what people want and react.

    Does anyone besides me find it hilarious that people are talking about buying the second generation unit when the paint isn't even dry on the rollout model?

    Talk about early adopters. No clue what the next gen will even offer so why would I consider buying one?
