I'm still content with my iPad one's.... But if rumors let alone the actual firmware meet expectations, I will upgrade this time around.

You would be due if you did. Not being frivolous ;).

Anyone contemplating a new iPad would be wise to wait until the new iPad is released. Even if you buy an iPad 2, it will be sold by Apple at a much reduced price.

Yes, if you want to get a discounted iPad I would wait for iPad 2 to go down in price.

I'm planning on waiting for iPad3, the problem is even if it launches in the US tomorrow, it will be a few months till it hits our shores in SA. So I'm still trying to restrain myself from getting an iPad2.

Errrrrrrrrrrrr. Must. Have. iPad!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

90% or more users do not jail break and are more than happy what apple delivers. Each ipad I have purchased has performed beyond my expectation and further more had the lowest cost ownership of any computer I have ever owned I will have no hesitation in upgrading to iPad 3

One of the tech magazines had a writer trade his MacBook for an iPad 2 for three days. The goal was to see how much the iPad would be able to replace a business machine. As no surprise, there were areas that the MBP was necessary. But it was also interesting how much could be done with the iPad if a person worked at it. In the past ten years, Apple has completely revised how we use electronics. And the beauty is how it flows from product to product. It does not matter if a person buys an iPad 2 or an iPad 3. Eventually, a model will come out with the ultimate components for each individual's needs. Until then, you buy the model that is better for getting familiar with and meets your individual price/needs criteria.

i really want ipad 2 but waiting for new one :)

If you really want iPad2, why wait? Some stores are starting to markdown the iPad2 by US$70.00. I just got an email from a large grocery store chain--Meijers, here in the upper mid-West of the USA...touting the iPad2 as a GREAT Valentines gift!

Too late for me, iPad 2 already ordered. By the way, unless you buy Apple's stuff on release day, you can be pretty sure the next generation is never that far from now.

In some way you are right. But in my opinion Apple is pretty consistent with releasing new stuff. I was planning to buy iPad 2 by end of the 2011, but I knew that they will release new iPad about March, so I waited. If I see that iPad 3 is not big improvement over iPad 2, I will simply take discounted iPad 2 :)

Agreed 100%. I was in your very same situation last year. Eventually I got the ipad 2 as the cameras are very important for me for video calls.
