Based on what I am hearing, I can skip gen2 of the iPad... to wait for the retina (or near-retina) screen on the iPad3... the main addition of iPad2 appears to be the front-facing camera... ok, I guess... but my current iPad is good enough for me for now.
I'm more anxious to see the new MBPs tomorrow... and the iPhone5 in June.

I've already sold my 1st gen iPad but I'm not totally sure on what my plans are for the future. I'd really like to wait a little while to see what will be coming out in the near future as I'm really interested in a Wi-Fi only Motorola Xoom and the Blackberry Playbook looks like it could be pretty sweet as well. Depending on the specs of the iPad 2, that's a possibility as well, although I didn't really feel like it did enough additional things over my iPhone to justify tying up $500 in it.

I'm surprised I'm still the only one set to pick up an iPad 2 for sure. The playbook looks nice and a few of the other tablets look cool I will prob try them out for sure but none of them I would consider using as my daily device. I find the same as before once I heard about the iPad there wasn't a doubt in my mind that I was going to get it.

But here's the reason to upgrade...
What really matters is what you can get for the old ipad versus the cost of a new one. The difference is what you're really paying which isn't all that much. 100? 200? To get another year of apple care on your old ipad will run 99 dollars alone. May as well sell old one and get a new one that has apple care.

I throw anything I intend to replace up on Ebay and am always surprised that I get most (or all) of my value back if selling at the right time. And IMO, the 1st Gen iPads value is has peaked so if you dont sell now then the dropoff will be substantial. (Mine just sold and I was shocked to get just about full price back due to a last minute bidding war)

The problem is people always assume everyone else uses the device like they do, look for the things they do, etc. There are people ou there who don't have a problem with the battery power, there are some out there who would sacrifice battery power over the weigh or heft anyday. I personally don't care about the weight but I have had lag so for me a faster processor and more RAM is music to my ears.

BUT, if you really dont want the newest unit then there's going to be a flood of used iPads hitting ebay/craigslist once the iPad 2 is official.

Bought a first gen today at walmart. I don't intend on opening or using until Wednesday afternoon. If the price drops I will get the difference back and be a happy camper. If the 2 completely replaces it then I will do a full out return. I just figured that if the price point does drop by 100 then these things will be hot cakes!
