the ipad 2 will have the features the ipad lacked. then, they iapd 3 will have the features the ipad 2 lacked. thus driving up apple's sales and sending fanboys into bankruptcy trying to keep up.
meanwhile, the intelligent masses who are tired of new firmwares every 2 months to slowly release "new features" and discourage jailbreaking and "next gen" devices every 6 months will NOT buy an iphone 5 or an ipad 2 and instead wait for an iphone 6 and buy an Android tablet.

Apple better squash this or they will threaten to sue someone for disrupting the sales of the ipad2.

This is the i4/Gizmodo incident all over once again.

Great thread devoted to ipad. Apple has always brought some wonderful products and don't be mistaken if it launches more ipads.

No one makes you read the entire article then post about it...

That is just ludacris!! Why would you spend $6-900 twice in one year for the same product?? Yes the 3rd iPad may be a leap as the 4G was to the 3GS but come on now...that's just ridiculous! Just like the Verizon iPhone, the AT&T white iPhone, the next iPhone upgrade....just give us the tech without pumping the breaks hahahahha! Not gonna happen i know as Apple reaps Millions with the old "lets drag our knuckles and reap all $$ possible per update" SMART business but it RAPES the consumer....ALL IN hahaha!

I'm glad that you've been in the medical field for 20 years, but that gives you no more credibility in this topic than being in IT gave me to diagnose an illness. You're evidence is anecdotal and based off of your experience at the offices and facilities you've worked at. There may very well be more Fujitsu tablets in the world. There may very well be more Nokia smartphones than iPhones in the world as well, but in the Apple vs Nokia race, who would you say has won? "Owning" the market has more to do with current sales and trends than it does past performance.
There's no more emotion in any of my statements that there is in any of yours. Just as you may accuse me of being an Apple fanboy, I would say that you appear to be an Apple hater and are using your emotion to argue a counter-point. You may be referring to my statement that the iPad is the fastest piece of technology in history. There's absolutely NO emotion in that statement at all. If you'll remember this article (iPad "Fastest Adoption Rate Ever:" Report), it stated that "the iPad has had a faster adoption rate than any electronics product in history other than cell phones." I rest my case.
P.S. I never stated that Apple invented the tablet. Bill Gates predicted tablets YEARS ago. I'm just saying that Apple has had the biggest commercial success with tablets.

Nothing beats it except an actual operating system.

And W7 (the actual OS, no idea how the mobile phone version is) is an excellent OS. It's funny you mention it of all things as W7 has amazing native support for tablets and touch controls.

As far as Windows 7 goes, I think it's a fine OS. Excellent, if you'd like. It may even have great support for tablets and touch controls. And as soon as I see and can use a functional tablet running W7 that I like better than the iPad, I'll comment on it. I've just never seen it. My fundamental problem with that is that the concept is just to take a laptop and remove the keyboard. You've essentially just created a laptop that's more difficult to control. I (and many others) feel that the iPad is a new computing paradigm. Once again, I don't think it will replace laptops or desktops (and least not any time soon), but they've designed an entirely different way to manipulate information and brought it into a killer form factor. Try using Numbers or Pages and tell me that they're not an incredible to create content on a tablet.

I wasn't trying to knock down what the iPad can do, which is a lot. I just believe that what it can't do is what's keeping it from truly being a tablet (again, in my opinion). Being able to run multiple apps at the same time (not just multitasking) and utilize the screen real estate to it's maximum potential. Media management is a big one for me. Jailbreaking open this up a bit, but I think it shouldn't come down to that.
I understand what apple is aiming for and I like where it's going, it's just not there yet for me to adapt that aspect of my mobile life. A laptop without a keyboard should be the iPad's ultimate goal. I just feel iOS is sacrificing things it shouldn't for the sake of ease and convenience.

i think it may be true. with the latest "knock off" ipad's they will be wanting to release something MUCH better VERY soon before people work out they are practically the same. also with the "knock off" ipad's you can plug your iphone into it so... you never know

I would agree with most of that. I guess I'm just giving them the benefit of the doubt. Remember what the first iPhone was like? We've come a long way in such a short time. You've got to figure that the iPad has been out less than a year. Developers haven't even come close to fully exploring the full depth of what it can do. And Apple still has it's tablet training wheels on. Give this thing a few more years to develop and it will pratically be a totally different device. I'm excited.
