    Hard to say.

    There was no indication that Apple would ship the iPad 2 so early worldwide. While the launch in the US was assumed to be in March/April, many assumed that it would take until the summer to ship in the rest of the world, just like last year.

    Personally I wouldn't as the lack of a web cam was the main reason I held off on buying an iPad 1. And I like the thinner design of the iPad 2.

    Yeah, I would be very surprised to see many iPad 2 only apps. From what I've seen there aren't a ton of iPhone 4 only applications for instance.

    Things tend to get made for the lowest common denominator so they can sell to the most people.

    Even without the iPad2, I find that there are right now far too many apps as it is, that I can't even finish using/trying/playing the ones I already have before downloading new ones. And developers will continue to build apps for both versions of iPad (and not forgetting iPhone, too.) So no worries in that respect for me.

    Not to me. The hint that a second gen is coming has been out there since about two days after the first gen hit - hints have only gotten more frequent and more detailed since.

    If it were me, I would have either:

    1 - taken a hard look at the specs of the first gen and decided if they would accomplish what I was looking for...

    and/or

    2 - waited until the second gen unveil to see what the official specs of the new device were going to be.

    Anything in between is called a "decision" and is my choice and no one's fault but mine..

    Pretty simple IMO.

    I've been looking in the classifieds (online, different forums, local craigslist ads) and surprisingly, the majority of people are wanting MORE for their iPads than what Apple is selling their refurbs for. Plus, the refurbs from Apple (no different than if you got a replacement from the Genius Bar) all come with brand new cases and brand new batteries inside of them.

    The only down side to buying from the Apple store is the sales tax can add no another $30-$60 to the price, which then gets to you to the same (or slightly higher) price as what people are trying to sell their used ones for.


    My goal right now is to find a 32 gb 1st gen iPad with WiFi for a good price (used or refurb from Apple), rather than buying a brand new iPad2.
