    The iPad 154 will have full support for USB 2.0. Hehehehahaha

    I have always thought the text on my iPhone 4 has looked very crisp. Never noticed text being fuzzy. That sucks if others are experiencing that.

    Guys, don't forget this is Apple we are talking about. They have a long history of just adding the basics of new features to keep customers buying and upgrading. I highly doubt that the graphics will change in the next iteration of the iPad. Camera yes, but graphics will be the same. I see this, probably the same A4 CPU, 512 MB of memory to match the iPhone 4, VGA front camera and a 0.7-1 MP back facing camera. Nothing more.

    Apple does this as to not piss off early adopters as well as make enough improvements to get new customers. It's a smart strategy. It's always going to be 2 revisions up before enough changes are made to upgrade an existing product.

    Take the iPhone for example. The first iPhone had only the basic features to entice customers. Once the iPhone 3G came out, it was not enough for early adopters to upgrade but enough to get everyone who did not purchase an iPhone to get one. Then the iPhone 3GS was released, iPhone 1 customers upgraded while most iPhone 3G customers stayed. iPhone 4 came out and it was enough changes to upgrade the 3G but not enough to upgrade the 3GS. Long story short, if you have an iPad, you wil probably not be upgrading to an iPad 2 unless you have unlimited disposable income. If you don't have an iPad yet, the iPad 2 will make you want to get one for the first time. Current owners of the iPad will jump on the iPad 3 while iPad 2 owners will pass and get the iPad 4 once announced.

    Apple products always have a minimum 2 year life span before upgrading is actually worth it.

    Food for thought.

    I'm not as anti-rumor as some people on here, but can we please wait until the thing is down to at least a year before release?

    So how many people are gonna pass on iPad 2, and wait for iPad 3? I would hope there'd be some improvement in the resolution of the iPad 2, over the orginal.

    People keep forgetting that "Retina" is just a marketing term. Apple's definition of a Retina display is that they pack more pixels than the human eye can see. In short, the iPad does not need a Retina display cause the screen itself is great for the size of the iPad. Applications made for the iPad look great as well. It's those applications built for the iPhone but installed on an iPad that look subpar. Software wise, Retina can be done. There is an application on the iPad through cydia that give retina like results for some iPhone apps. Granted, it is not true Retina, but works quite well.

    Honestly I haven't used an iPhone 4 so I don't know how it feels to see RETINA STYLE.....but what I do know is that the ipad screen (to me) is great right now! it could be better yes but unless apple gives it a retina display or atleast something close to it it's not worth bumping up the pixels because at the end of the day your eye wont tell the difference and youll just be paying more... Im NOT saying i don't want a retina display cuz I REALLY DO! im just saying I dont want to be paying more for something I can't even tell the difference with, but if there isnt change in price than yes I would like to have the ipad screen "bumped" up.

    No. Steve Jobs said when unveiling iOS 4 "Apple is not about being the first. It's about being the best."
