if people own a ipad2 its silly to upgrade to the ipad3 buecause the ipad 2 is still awesome. now if people own a ipad1 it will be well worth it to upgrade o the ipad3

I'm getting an iPad 3. I'm not going to work Wednesday. Going to watch the keynote if I can and check out all of the ipad discussions throughout the day.
I might even wear my turtleneck.

I just got the iPad 2 about 3 weeks ago...I am new to Apple (Windows & android guy) so I am still learning everything with Apple. I am interested to see what will be offered in the iPad 3 (I've only read the rumors that all of you have). So I think I will hold off at least until all the bugs are worked out before I decide to get one. HOWEVER I just MIGHT get another iPad 2 when their prices drop...but I will get a BIGGER one...I have the 16GB now but it's almost full already! Androids don't fill up as fast because you have the 32gb microSD card to help you out with space. So the internal memory is all for apps & OS. I would love to see if I can get a 64gb ipad 2 close to the same price that a current 16gb model would cost.

Automatic upgrade? Seems extreme. May I ask why?

Have an iPad2, don't plan to upgrade yet. Took me until early May to finally receive it, after weeks of calling -and visitIng- stores in 3 states. Well worth the wait and effort, but no rush this time. Looking forward to seeing what will be new, but just looking right now.

I have an iPad 2 and have been on the fence. If you're not a gadget geek there probably isn't an overpowering reason to upgrade unless the higher-res display or better cameras are important to what you do...and they end up actually being in the product.

My wife wants mine and I could use a memorey upgrade to my 16gb model, so I'll probably get one unless the announcement really disappoints.

My ip2 is 6 months new and runs like a high end Swiss time piece. I have my wife's 2011 Mac pro sitting in the guest bedroom / office. There is no practical reason to get ip3 but I am. Apple knows most just want the latest toy. Ip2 is great. Mine just works. I wish I was one of the smarter more disciplined consumers who know there is no practical reason to upgrade. Plenty of cool reasons though.

1) I have an ipad 2 sold to gazelle.com already so im only paying about 200 dollars out of pocket.

2) I work for best buy (so ill have no issues getting one launch day) and it allows me to do my job better. And having the latest model also allows me to show customers how it can be used without the limits of our demo models.

3) I have always upgraded :)

I sold it for 350 to gazelle.com a few weeks ago. They give you a 30 day window to return the device. So I still have 2 weeks with my ipad 2 to backup, etc before I get my 3 :)

Fyi, they're buying on gazelle for about 290 last I checked.

Normally these things are covered by sites like Engadget with a live report and pictures as Apple only allows broadcasting live from very few events (if any). I'm sure a link to a feed will be pasted on the forums in the lead up to the event.

CNN usually has a live feed on their site, tv, and iPad/iPhone apps.

Gonna be upgrading in August because school is going to pay for it anyways. Gonna look at getting something with 3G this time around.

Preordered the original iPad and received it on release day--best purchase I have ever made-- have used it every single day. Did not purchase iPad 2 but plan on getting 3 ASAP!
