    So the rumor mill is really going lately with the claim that we may see an iPad 3 as soon as September. What are your current purchasing plans? Holding off on the iPad 2 to pick up the third generation? Buying both? Neither? Personally I will probably hold off on the 2nd generation if there is no retina display. Not worth the upgrade from the 1st one without a new screen. Thoughts?

    I'm really curious to see what will be coming out in the near future. I have my eye on the future iPads, Motorola Xoom, and BlackBerry Playbook. I'd like to see a slightly more capable and lightweight iPad since I own a first gen model and all of my other devices are Apple products. However, both the Xoom and Playbook look like they could provide some competition. I've had Android phones in the past and there are certain things about the OS that are implemented much better than they are in iOS but the price may be prohibitive. The Playbook also looks like it could be a strong offering and the idea of a smaller device is something to consider.

    Depends on what is in the 2ed gen and if the 3rd gen rumor is even real. The XOOM on the other hand looks nice.

    I'll buy a new iPad, once my current 1st gen no longer gets supported iOS updates. Hopefully, if like for the phones, it will be around iPad 3 I will upgrade!

    I doubt two models would release in the same year. I'm pretty sure that they will announce the iPad 3 in Sept. But i wont be out until early 2012. So I will be selling m current iPad and moving to an iPad 2 becaus I will be skipping iPhone 5 for iPhone 6.

    I'm sorry but I will not believe it until they take the stage and say it's so. I would believe they would announce it in Sept. and maybe have it available in Feb. of 2012. They would shoot themselves in the foot by even announcing two models in the same year because no one is going to buy iPad 2 knowing a couple months later iPad 3 would be coming out.

    I don't care about the retina display, but lighter and faster are things I'm interested in. Probably will wait until Sept to at least see if they announce iPad 3.

    What if this so called "ipad 3" is actually an new larger iPod touch, but smaller then the current iPad. Would be aimed at digital media, like the other iPods rather then what ever the iPad is aimed at

    I'll wait and see. Definitely not even interested in the iPAD 2. I could care less about a camera in ant iPad. The thing that would make me jump for an new iPad 3(?) is the "retina" display. There are several apps I have for both my iPhone 4 and iPad. These apps, when you view them in the "x2" mode, are a bit fuzzy but not enough to really bother me. The iPad "HD" apps look great.

    I wanna buy a iPad 2 for my mom as a gift coz she doesn't have any now, so I guess waiting for iPad 2 is better than having the 1st gen now

    The iPad 2 or 3 will need to have MORE then just a retina display. Dual core, faster ram SD card slot. iOs 5 will need an lot more in the iPad verison not just a scalled up iPhone. (ie; home screen)

    I don't think it is a good thing to upgrade from ipad 1 to the soon to be released ipad 2.
    Normally apple works by doing small improvements from interaction to interaction.

    99% of the comsumers have no idea about new models coming out and dont read for rumors. You know that

    The percentage of tech users who know of new realses is very small. If you go to Best buy or even the Apple and ask 10 shoppers when the next iPad will come out. chances or 8 or 9 wont have a clue.

    The biggest if for me is Apple's new subscription policy. If Amazon and others pull support from the iPad due to this (and I wouldn't blame them), I'll look for a different tablet or retreat to a netbook.

    Now from all the rumors about the iPad 2's features(such as "Apple iPad 2.0 release date, specs: Rumor roundup" in iFunia news blog), I think I would like stick with the 1 gen iPad sometimes, and wait for the iPad 3.
    But if the iPad 2 have some surprises stunned me, I'll consider get one!

    Honestly because it doesn't have Retina Display I don't think I will buy the iPad 2. I can't go to using iPad after using my iPhone 4, the pixels are sooo visible.
