    This is a great upgrade /if/ the ram actually was doubled. We will find out soon enough. It is going to need it to support the bigger firmwares and the demand the newer apps are going to demand from it.

    I was really hoping to be part of the 500,000 lucky mofos but Before i got home I drove past the strip which has Wally world/ Target/ and best buy. Its not going to happen, the line reminds me of a four hour wait for a new ride at six flags. I'll just have to order it.

    Does anyone know If or when the iPad first gen will get lowered in price? If it does I will definitely buy one because the way I understand is the first gen can do everything the second gen does, (minus FaceTime)?... Just not as gracefully?..... I'm sure I will be corrected if I'm wrong.

    How about better battery life, a significant software update (universal), and a design similar to the i4? Also, an addition of thunderbolt, USB, and flash.

    Your actually right. The new iPad is not really any better.

    I ordered 16gb white iPad 2 ship time says 2-3 weeks. So, I am just happy with my iPad 1 til it arrives. I figure the ship time may be quicker u never know. Yes, iPad 2 is worth upgrading a tablet without cameras is boring tech.

    Double the RAM? If you're doing the amount of work that is THAT RAM intensive then an iPad probably isn't the device you should be using.
    trust me there's quite a bit of difference compare to the first ipad......I know because I use my mom's time to time. I saw the new ipad 2 today and let me tell you, this new apple tablet is a winner in every way both in aesthetics and speed/display quality. Blazing fast wifi performance. As soon as this baby gets cracked aka jailbroken, I will definitely buy one.

    I still can't believe there are idiots out there that thought or were hoping the ipad2 would have USB, SD slots, and...LMAO Flash!!!!!! This thing just blew away whatever insignificant competition there was not only from a technical review perspective but also from a commercial/general public perspective. And we're still talking about FLASH???!!! LMAO!

    They could sell more than 500k if they didn't sell out everywhere! There are many people like me who want one but didn't want to wait in line and can't find them in stores now.

    Why are you talking about being spoiled by retina when you only have an iPhone 3G?

    This was worth the upgrade for me

    FaceTime/More RAM/Faster Processor

    The iPad 1 was good but the iPad 2 should have been what the first 1 should've been.

    Either way I Sold my iPad 1 32gb a month ago for $550 knowing the value of it would go down as soon as the 2 was announced. So i didn't lose out much.

    I like the sound of the ipad2, but i will not be buying one. I waiting 5 1/2 hoiurs in line for the first ipad on the first day and i dont see the need to get that emotional over the second installment. Maybe that is because i just jailbroke a few months ago and am loving being able to tweak at the moment. If the ipad 3 makes decent improvements over the second i will be picking me up one of those though. I just cant justify to myself buying a new decice every year, and my ipad is still sweet and ready for another year.

    I will wait until the retina display is introduced.

    The lack of JB on iPad 2 and same display as iPad 1 were the deal breakers for me.

    I believe that the first time owners that were to get one anyways are getting a good deal for the new upgrades, but not a justifiable one for most previous owners.

    I needed at least a better display for me to justify getting a new one.
