I was thinking of picking up a 16gb wifi ipad to hold me over until the new one releases.
Right now, they are $499 or $429 refurbished. If they follow the iphone pricing, we should expect a substantial price drop when then new ipad 2 is released.
Anyone have any thoughts on what a new ipad 2 will cost, and what one might be able to sell an ipad 1 when the ipad 2 is available? Maybe someone recalls how much original iphons were selling for on ebay just after the phone 3G was released. I think the original iphone 4gb was about $500. Does anyone remember how much they were going for just after the iphone 3G release.
I dont mind spending the money for the ipad, but I would hate to pay $500 now, and only be able to sell if for $200 in April

I purchased the WiFi only model on launch day and sold it a few months ago and had the 3G as well. I just wasn't using it enough with the iPhone. Now that I am iPhoneless I am looking to get a replacement iPad 64G WiFi only again. I just don't see the 3G as critical with so many HotSpots, I have a MiFi already on Verizon with 10GB monthly so I can more easily surf without penalty.
The big question is what will the iPad2 bring to Verizon, WiFi only or a 3G version? They do like their MiFi's but I don't think their iPads are selling to well.
