Like the iPhone, I'm glad I waited. I was going to get the original iPhone when it was released, but waited til iPhone 4. Now I was going to buy the iPad 2, but now I'm glad I waited. Going to try to buy the iPad 3, but that's if it's not outrageously priced.

frustrated, very frustrated
I, hate to say it, sort of betrayed by Apple. I supported them and now they come out with something so damn early. There isn't going to be another ipad this fall i told my mother, its ok to buy the ipad, you don't have to worry about it again until next year, and now this...
Well yes you were right at least for now as more and more evidence is suggesting. I am glad you are so on the inside because now i can prepare for the yelling and screaming.
I just hope my white ipad 2 with 3g 32 gig still will sell.

If it's aimed at video editing types, then it has to be 16:9, otherwise what's the point? Hell of a resolution though for that size of screen!
Think they should drop the ipad 2 moniker though, ipad 2 pro is too much to say. iPad Pro sounds way better.
My order will be in!

Computer names included screen sizes where appropriate without any indication of version/revision number (MacBook, MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, iMac, MacPro). They are often referenced by their release date (early-2010, mid-2011, etc).
Portable Devices have the version/revision number included (iPhone 3G, iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPod Touch 3 Gen, iPad, iPad 2, etc)
But I agree, iPad 2 Pro is a mouthful. I like the iPad Pro... and like the iPhone, there will be some confusion with the name, no matter which way they go... iPad 3? iPad Pro 2? iPad Pro?
But whatever they call it, it's coming...

Based on what you're saying, might I be wise to return it and wait to see if the price drops when the iPad 3 is released? I'd rather wait a couple of months and get it cheaper if that's likely to happen...
I'm so confused.

Mine is two weeks old and I could of done the same but chose to keep it. It's still a great piece of kit. When the next release comes along I'll sell it and put the extra towards it.
If you're still going to buy ipad 2 when the pro version arrives, why wait? 3 months is a heck of a long time to wait when you want to play with a 'want'. I doubt the price drop will be substantial.
Of course, it could go the other way. The new model(s) could be more expensive.

Rule one of being an apple iOS user. Sell and buy. Don't sweat the waiting. Ebay or craigslist can sell these things in a heartbeat.
I'd say enjoy now. In fact i look at it this way. At release, you usually get 12 months of use. Divide the cost per month (500/12). Longer you wait, the more costly per month if you always buy at release. Buy online to save tax like macmall. An ipad one costs less and would be fine to enjoy for now til an ipad 3 comes along.

I woke up this morning thinking exactly what you all said. I won't be moving up to the iPad 3 and I don't anticipate that the price of the iPad 2 will come down too significantly, so I'm going to enjoy my iPad 2 now.
I think I was just suffering some "sticker shock" because I don't really need an iPad---but I've been wanting one so I'm going to keep it and enjoy it.

Got tired of sepate systems for music, film, emails etc. Sure, it doesn't have the finer quality of the seperate stuff but it more than pays for it with convienience. I really do think it's revolutionised the way people work and play.

Keep it... Still a few month to go... You'd be dennying yourself the enjoyment that is iPad
I also got mine about 2 weeks ago and have used it daily like crazy ever since... Hardly cracked open my MBP since...
And the iPad 3/iPad 2 HD are still very much rumor at this point... Let's say it doesn't get released on Oct, how would you feel then?
As others have said, worst case... Sell your iPad 2 if & when the next releases.
