    The iPad has sold 15 million units since launch, but realistically the market for them is finite - for the next generation to be a success, it seems logical that there will have to be a lot of repeat customers. Who plans to get the iPad2?

    Almost certainly, yes! I'll upgrade for any of these things: more memory, front-facing camera, high-res display (sexy!)

    No questions. I will be moving up to the next gen. iPad has been one of the most fun devices that I have owned.
    Current IPad have and will be sold near the original value.

    I just got mine at Xmas time, if I upgrade to anything it will me one of the new android tablets. Unless there are significant changes to iP2.

    What about an option along the lines of "I don't have the current iPad yet but I'm waiting for the iPad 2!"? :p

    Definitely buying one and passing the current models on within the family. They'll still work as well as they do now.

    Apple has us firmly hooked with all the software we've invested in and unless they do something silly in the future, like fail to improve the OS, they should retain the majority of users.

    Up until the past couple of days I was a yes. I may go with an iPhone 5 and wait for the iPad 3. We currently have 2 iPads. One 64 GB 3G, WiFi and one 64 GB WiFi. We love them!

    I doubt it. Totally happy with the two I have. Unless there is some unforeseen magical technology that I can't resist.

    I am happy with my current ipad. I may have a look at the iphone 5, though. I am still using my trusty iphone 3g, but it sure seems slow now!

    I'm sure I will want the new iPad, but I would say there is almost no chance that I will get one. If I could get the bulk of the worth out of mine I might consider it, but these things are expensive toys and there are way more important things for me to spend my money on (unfortunately ... lol).

    I hope yours sells. I put mine on eBay and kept having people offer 500. Nobody would go over 500. I have a 32gb 3G. Hope your market is hotter than here in Tx.

    That's where I am now. There are lots of rumors flying around about the next version, and none of them make me want to upgrade; really, the perfect gen2 for me would be the exact same design with 1GB RAM and 128GB storage.

    It depends on the new features, so far I don't see anything that makes me want to switch. Very happy with what I have.

    Very doubtful, it's going to take a huge difference in iPad 2 to sway me away from Android 3.0 tablets.

    Current iPad will be going to my wife since all she really wants is an easy way to email and look at Facebook.

    I would certainly upgrade if I listened to the unreasonable voice in that wood block that serves as my thought processor but money is scarce and will remain so for a while.

    I'm still waiting for that MacTablet and that would warrant total priority though!

    Naw. I just got this, essentially and it's working out great for me. I don't see any of the [rumoured] new features being at all attractive to me. I'll just wait to see what iPad 3 comes out. Or, until this iPad1 starts getting left behind - as in, not getting iOS updates.

    For now, considering the investment I have in it, I'm quite pleased and satisfied with this version.

    No I don't see the significance yet, I had mine since last April. But 2 cameras don't catch my attention. Besides the new processor I don't think the new iPad will have a retina display.
    I am hoping for iOS 4.3 multi task gestures though!

    No, I have to buy a new computer and the iPad has completely sold me on converting from pc to mac, so that is where my $$$ are going this year. Maybe by gen 3 I can justify a new iPad. I'm loving what I have now, don't have a need for anything more at this point in time.
