I_luv_Apple said:I disagree. Some people like myself enjoy new technology. I never tell anyone that I'm buying the new iPad or iPhone and only share my enthusiasm with what I believe are others who enjoy technology too (eg IPad Forums). Technology moves on all the time eg 4G has just become available in the UK. It's hardly "showing off" to want to make use of these new innovations in technology.
Besides, once you get an iPad in a cover it is really hard to tell what you are carrying, much less the model! I made a mistake of getting the same cover for my iPad2 and the next gen iPad. I had to change the lock screen so that I can quickly see which is which.
