Should I buy an iPad now?
So this one is a bit different. A few months back I had to sell my iPad due to some unforeseen circumstances. I am now back in a better situation and want to pick up the iPad again. However, with all this talk about a new dock connector, and how everyone is certain that the new iPhone will have it, do you think Apple will revise the iPad with the new connector? Thoughts?

I expect that if the rumors are true (and lets not forget that's what they are until Apple announces otherwise) then new devices that are released from this Autumn onwards will have the smaller dock. I expect there to be adapters for converting the 30 pin dock to the smaller size and vice versa.

Whatever Apple will revise the iPad or not, I think you buy the iPad now or not depends on your needs, if the iPad 3-gen or iPad 2 meets your needs, then you could get one.
The new dock connector is not so important as there will be adapters available~

I think the new connector will arrive with the next change of the larger IPad, which will not be updated until 2013, the smaller Ipad due for release shortly will more than likely have the new connector due to its size.
I have the Ipad(3), and would be lost without, especially reading books or newspapers.

The new dock connectors will roll across the product line as the products are refreshed on their regular schedules. To do otherwise is expensive and, IMHO, poor use of resources. It's also bad business.

offcourse you should buy it
the latest ipad 3 is already out in the market, and the next new ipad will be launched in 2013
so you are good to go and you should buy it now
just google for best ipad 3 deals and you'll find many websites where you can get it for cheap prices
i live in uk so here we can by it on monthly contracts and pay as you go deals where we dont have to pay full amount of the device
for example visit this link http://www.ipad3contracts.com/deals.php and you'll be surprised to know that how its affordable for us in uk to get these expensive devices, may be other countries have these kinds of offers too, you can search them on google according to place wherever you live

I'm thinking about buying an iPad 3 soon and doing some research first. I'm probably going to wait until I hear what Apple has to say on 9/12. Just in case they make a change which I doubt. Plus, I'll have a new Apple credit card in my hands in the next week so 6 months no interest will be nice too!

I sold my AT&T ipad since I'm switching to verizon for iphones along with data sharing. Right now i'm just waiting to see if I get the itch to buy another one as I didn't use it a lot. But definitely waiting til after the 12th.
The verizon thing isn't set in stone either. It depends on what this newly lit up LTE rural network (verizon rural program) in my backyard has in mind. They don't exactly have LTE anything to sell besides a mifi. Makes you wonder why they hurried to get it done. Coincidence?
