hi I currently have an ipad2 3g do u think its worth upgradeing to ipad3(4g)
You only need to ask yourself two questions.
1) Can you afford to?
2) Will the doubling of the resolution be helpful?
I've pondered the thought over and over. I don't care about the camera as I never use it, or video for that matter. I play the simplest games that don't require any graphics power, and LTE is not a concern of mine. So basically assuming I could get $325 for my current IPAD 2 on Craigslist I would have to justify paying an additional $175 for beautiful screen. I may just wait for the next generation - however the problem with that is by then my IPAD will severely decrease in value.
Your last point has a lot of validity. And the best opinion I can give on it is, watch what the iPad (1st Gen) does for the next two weeks. Especially since the iPad (2nd Gen) will still be an in-production product with a reduced price point. This should give you the best case "crystal ball" and allow you to make an informed choice.
It is widely believed that Apple tries to design upgrades to be most attractive to those with two year old models. If I had an iPad 2, I would probably wait until the 4th generation. Since I have one of the first iPads, I am looking at going to a new model and handing down my old model. One thing to remember is that battery life is finite. Even with the best of care, the battery will start to fail after a few years, so there is only so long that it is worth keeping a model.
I wonder what it costs to replace the battery on the orig or the model 2?
Well, take a look at this Apple Battery Support Article - just scroll down to the iPad; $100+ when taxes & S/H are added - rather 'steep' IMO for a device that may be 2 generations or more behind the times?
For myself, I have an iPad 2 (< a year old) and will wait for the next one to be released -
Great advice! Exactly what I'm going to do. The new features are certainly awesome but not worth that much extra for iPad2 owners IMO.

I agree with this.. I have always heard that you should skip a year when it comes to upgrading a device. I have the first gen ipad, I skipped the 2ng and now looking forward to getting the 3rd one. I plan on selling my ipad online for about 250 300.. 100 gift card from bestbuy.. only gotta pay another 100 for the ipad.. so I am happy with that.
Im upgrading from the 1st gen. If i had the ipad 2 i would skip this model
