Only if they release an iPad with quad core and high res display and there's nothing on the Android side that at least matches it. I would have seriously considered this one if it were quad core.

...and I was for sure this was going to be an A6 quad-core, which would have, combined with Retina, would have obliterated the competition. Also, I was hoping the would have changed the backing to be complete glass a la iPhone 4S.

I wouldn't want complete glass on a tablet, no way in hell. I've already dropped mine a couple of times, I'd have obliterated all glass!

Yes, a quad core A6 would have made it an iPad I'd actually be willing to switch environments for, and that's saying a LOT.

Implying we know anything about what the "A6" processor is beyond just a product identifier code in some software.

Owner of an iPad 2 that largely sits on our kitchen counter for light web browsing and mostly recipes. Sometimes used by kids (probably more as they get older).

iPad 3 = no compelling reason for me to upgrade

If I didn't own one, it'd be a good time to get one.

Are there many iPad 2 only apps? Think there will be many iPad 3rd gen only apps?

i think there are none, the only thing that the ipad 2 has and ipad 1 does not. might be some games effect.

so the user experience will probably be the same or close from ipad 1-3 if you don't game on it.

There are actually a few games that are Ipad2 only and a ton that just run like crap on a ipad 1. The Ipad 1 is really bad for games, less memory 256MB vs 512 MB , a4 vs a5 are the two big factors that make ipad1 to ipad2 upgrade HUGE when it comes to games.

yea, i think gaming should give buyer the main reason to upgrade. from 1-2 or 2-3.

the 25xx X 15xx resolution gaming on 10 inch is insane if you ask me.

even my 40 inch or even those 70 inch hdtv are only doing 1080p at best.

i can't imagine, how games will look on such a high resolution on a tiny 10 inch display.

OK folks, so after all the crap I said about the new iPad, think I'm going to pick up a 32GB iPad. Any reason why I should spend more on the 64GB? All I do is surf the web, play games (3-4 installed - delete after finish), and read e-books (mostly) on the thing.

I think the biggest problem is the iPad lineup is all a little overpriced. You can make arguments that they're solid products, but they aren't worth the asking price unless you're an Apple nut. The iPad 1 had an ecsude since there WAS no alternitive back then for tablets... but now theres tons. Why choose the more expensive Apple?

before the iPad came out, there were rumours that it would be $999. even if it did come out at that figure, it would still have been a success. and you had better believe all other tablets on the market would be in that price range too, because the manufacturers would be able to get away with it.

I disagree, if anything the market is trying to drive the prices of tablets down. The iPad captures this market segment by discounting previous models, but other companies offering new products tried to both compete with Apple directly in that $500 ish tablet segment, or they go lower. If anything the $99 TouchPad fire sale and the more recent $$199 Kindle Fire have demonstrated that you can capture a chunk of market and mind share by driving for lower price points.

I have an Acer A200 already. Would buying an iPad2 for $400 be worth it? I mainly watch Twitch tv for live streams and surf the web. The A200 doesn't do twitch very well.

The TouchPad was released at a $400-500 price point. And the Kindle Fire can't be compared to an iPad, since 1) it's likely being sold on margin because of 2) the fact that it's not a fully functional tablet, but instead an Amazon Storefront device. If you're gonna compare the iPad to something, then it would be the Galaxy tab or Transformer, and obviously those aren't selling for $99.

I'm not sure why you wouldn't compare the Kindle Fire to the iPad since they're both competing in the tablet market. Selling something at or below cost as a loss leader doesn't disprove the notion that it's a product competing in the tablet space. I agree it's not as fully featured as the iPad 2, but that doesn't make it "not-a-tablet" and not a competing product. I argue that, I'm not making the Kindle Fire vs. iPad comparison, the entire world is. Hell even Amazon's Kindle page has a direct Kindle vs. iPad comparison chart here.

Question- can you transfer xvid or other video formats onto a jailbroken iPad? Or are they still stuck only supporting mp4 in iTunes?

VLC Player, you don't even need to be jailbroken.

However some of the hd formats tend to chug. I never messed with it much.

IMO its not worth it unless it has quad quad cores.....
But you might as well wait for quad quad quad cores because that'll be out within the year of quad quad cores.....

I predict in the future we'll have 17" tablets that people will be hauling around in backpacks just to read kindle or browse internet on a bus.....
And they'll have like quad quad quad quad cores with quad quad quad quad core GPUs.

And android will need extra quads to compensate for the lack of optimization
