    I would love to ~ especially if there is a camera. But I just can't shell out another $900.

    I will be jealous though!

    If it has more RAM and a higher rez display, I'll definitely pick one up. The camera feature doesn't really interest me, but if they add a feature where I could bluetooth videos from my iPod Touch to my iPad, I would love that.

    I always sell my current gen iOS devices the day they announce the new ones. They usually hold their value very well, as long as you don't mind being without one for a couple weeks. Then it's more like paying a little upgrade fee instead of spending $900 on a new product.

    Probably not. This version does everything I want and if I want FaceTime and a camera I have an iPhone 4.

    The only improvements I want are more RAM and more storage and/or an option to increase storage capacity. More than that would be gimmickery to me.

    Why wouldn't I buy it? A higher res display - imo, no display of ~10" should go higher than XGA (1024x768). My Sony TZ150 was 10.1" with a 1366x768 and it was annoying. We're trying to cram too much info on these small displays nowadays, dagnabbit!

    Nope, not till generation 3 at least. Facetime, cameras, and increased RAM aren't enough reason for me to upgrade. SD/usb flash drive support where I can load my media onto my ipad without have to sync with itunes? Then you'll have my attention.

    No way, if I replace my iPad anytime in the near future it will be with a MacBook Air. Bigger screen, faster processor, more memory, almost the same weight, and a whole more functionality.

    Only if it has usb connection. I can video talk from my EVO so no need for a camera on my iPad.

    Not sure. The camera will be nice however the notion of holding a 1.5 pound with 10" screen device to take a picture does not sound interesting. Let's enjoy the moment with the greatest invention of our time (perhaps an over statement).

    Bingo. Sometimes I feel we've become so used to looking for the next big thing, that we forget to simply enjoy what we have in our hands today and let tomorrow take care of itself.

    With phones I generally only go a year to a year and a half but the big difference is the subsidized pricing. Paying full price for the iPad means people will generally hold on to them longer. There is a big difference between 200-300 vs 500-900 dollars. People generally don't get a new pc every year. I think that the lack of subsidized pricing means it will be slower sales than they expect as the generations progress, especially after all the competition rolls in the market will get quickly saturated with tablets. I will likely wait to upgrade mine for 3-4 years unless it dies before then.

    I might very well buy an iPad2. It just depends on how it exactly hits the market.

    The single biggest thing I would like is more operating RAM.

    Nope, am not interested in a 7" rumored screen size. I have been able to set my IPad up so It replaces my net book for all things other than when I need to access my accounting data. Love DropBox and DocumentsToGo.

    I agree that it is better to wait at least for the iPad 4 or whenever mines died. I doubt the iPad 2 wil be a huge improvement and I want to wait for a dual core processor and equal or better battery life, I know big ask.

    There is so much wrong with that statement. :(

    Anyways....I might. It depends on what it can do over this version.

    Probably not, my laptop is 2 years old and I'm still happy (after doing some OS and memory upgrades)...same will be for the iPad. I'll probably wait til 4 but maybe 3 depends.... OR if a great deal comes up I'll jump!

    I would consider it. If it was just for the camera then I could leave it. The only thing is, with a camera, that could mean more video editing apps for the ipad which isn't currently the case.
    If it has usb capable of viewing all files and not just pictures, I would definitely think hard about getting it.

    I don't need a camera for face time because I am not interested in that kind of hook up. I have the iphone 3gs and have no intention of going to iphone 4 because its main selling point does not interest me at all.
