Getting iPad 32GB +3G
Someone is getting me a 32GB + 3G as a gift. While I do want it, I also realize that this is an expensive option and do not want to be stuck with it when iPad 2 comes around.
Any idea what the resell value would be or any other thoughts?
The person getting it for me may never see me as they are in another country.

Problem is that iPad at this point has no competition. The ones like Samsung who I thought would compete with serious Andriod products have priced themselves much much too high to dent Apple's domination of the pad product.
I really thought Samsung would price at $299.

You got to realize the Samsung is also like the iPad, but runs Android. 7" screen and has some stuff that iOs does not. I would be surprised if Apple loweed the price to $399 next year, but with Jobs recent childish, Conan like fit chances for that are low.
I just hope for an iPhone 4 like design. The curve back is not best if you place the device on the table.

In all liklihood it will have 2 cameras in order to have full FaceTime support. Nobody is going to be using it as their primary photo camera, but that's not the point.
The Tab is made of plastic, it's half the size of the iPad, and Samsung CLEARLY spent a lot less time on R&D. Not to mention that there will never be a substantial amount of applications specifically for the Tab in order to provide a better experience, while there are already tens of thousands for the iPad. The iPad pricing is already quite good. Entry price will stay the same but I can see them changing it to 32GB and having only 32 and 64GB options available, eliminating the $700/$830 64GB pricing we have now.
Having a flat back would make it feel a bit thicker and it would be heavier as well, but I can see the benefits of that...
To the OP, I'd suggest you sell it asap because when the next gen iPad is announced (most likely in late January), you're fvcked for resale value.

My guess is that Apple envisioned the iPad being used with a cradle rather than flat on a table.

The iPad camera won't be any different from that of a camera phone. Also they may have envision it being used on a cradle.but not everyone will be doing that and Apple needs to think of all the possisble usages.
