    Default Is Best Buy Getting Ready for the iPad 2?


    An image thought to be from Best Buyís inventor database is fueling rumors that the retail giant is getting ready for the latest iPad model. Anticipation for the iPad 2 is already at a fevered pitch and the release date may not be until April, if Apple keeps to its usual yearly schedule. Nevertheless, leaked images such as these are always an intriguing find.

    While these pictures may be nothing more than wishful thinking on the part of some inventory associate, the fact that there are only three iPad models listed, is quite interesting. Two of the iPad models are listed at the same price point. Is Apple planning a price increase, or do these prices, point to something else altogether? The models listed here may just turn out to be the Verizon iPad with Mi-Fi Hotspot bundle, but I hope that isnít the case. I guess weíll just have to be patient a little bit longer to find out.

    With so much speculation surrounding the iPad 2, will Apple be able to meet peopleís high expectations for the latest model? Probably. Over the last few years, Apple has elevated hype to an art form and they have become grand masters of the craft. If Apple is as productive as last year, itíll be another year to remember. Letís just hope the weather warms up before anyone starts lining up outside of the Apple Store.

    I hope the 3G model has CDMA/GSM chip so there are not multiple models

    I just hope that Most, and if not, some of the long awaited features will be implemented. I love my iPad, but come on..... Who doesn't want /more/ features???

    I hope it's a little lighter than the original. But better display is definitely at the top of my list. Especially since I'm so intrigued by my iPhone 4's resolution.

    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Don't get me wrong here.... But the heavier it is, the more likely it is for damage if dropped. The only reason I take this into consideration is due to the amount of family members (including those little people ages 4-10 who can't understand the value of what they're holding). I'm not disappointed by it's current weight. However, if it were a little lighter.... Perhaps many worries may seem to dissolve.

    The weight isn't horrible but does start to get heavy while reading a book or magazine after 20 mins or so.

    Agreed!!! Just playing words with friends for any amount of time has prompted me to hope for a lighter edition to the iPad era. More or less as I stated above.

    But as previously stated.... The resolution would be ridiculously awesome for the next generation. Which would be beneficial to sites such as mobilevids.org.

    I think a higher resolution would be great for magazines and web surfing for sure.

    Mee too!!! I live in Texas, and I'm already sick of the cold weather.... (and it just started).

    I can't imagine waiting in line for apple products.... Just as I don't see how northern NFL fans can stand to pay to go to a game where it's FREEZING COLD, and enjoy themselves.... More or less while paying so much money to do so.
