    £100 for iPad 2 or stick with iPad 1?

    Is the iPad worth an extra £100? I can't decide

    Just want everyones opinions - are you upgrading?

    lol. What colour you actually gonna get? I have a white netbook atm and at first I thought it looked nice but then I went off it.

    will go for the white one mate not decided between the 32gb wifi or 32gb 3g yet though

    wanted the white iphone4 but ended up with a black one when the white ones never materialised

    going to queue at the Apple store on launch day for the crack with all the other apple idiots

    It depends on if you think the difference is worth the extra.

    Bear in mind that the ipad 2 will retain a higher value for longer so since it sounds like you'll go for the ipad 3 no matter what it might be worth going for the ipad 2 for the extra 100. Because when you sell it for the next one if you get 50 more for it than if you sold the first one then the difference is actually 50 and you had the extra features of the second one during that time too.

    Get the black one. Looks slick. White ones are for women and panseys.

    they never discounted them initially even in the duty free outlets.....always stock issues initially but get an online order in early if you can

    They'll probably close the store down after you go for those "apple freaks" cracks. oO so i'll have to wait a few days while they clear your mess up.

    +1, absolutely no need for the 3G version for me.

    I wasn't going to upgrade but the checkerboard when loading pages gets on my wick so I'm going for the 16gb black wifi the cameras will make it handy for eBay selling And the faster CPU and ram upgrade should make it fly

    Original Poster

    In honestly the reason I want it, is the RAM - the worst thing about having it jailbroke with backgrounder was the RAM, it couldn't handle it at all and was sooo annoying compared to my i4

    Who's buying a smart cover? :P

    Smart covers look awesome I'll probs pick one up. How much they gonna be here? They $39 in US I think?

    I reckon about £35 shame about there being no back protection

    Wow is that all, I sold a 16GB wifi model via Amazon Marketplace 3 weeks ago and got £330 after fees and special delivery postage.

    One thing that's hit me with the iPad 2 is the ability to photograph documents, there's plenty of document scanning apps on the App store which is ideal for documents that I'm given, I can photograph them to store on the device and later then upload to Dropbox.

    32GB 3G in white.

    Question is, will the camera be up to it?

    That is the question.....

    Availability in the states according to the apple website is 2-3 week dispatch which is shocking!!

    Finally personal hotspot is coming to iOS ... only on the i4 I think tho, it allows connectivity of upto 3 devices via either wifi Bluetooth or usb

    I bought the ipad 1 this week after a lot of dithering.
    I decided I probably wouldn't use the camera much and the other improvements weren't worth paying an extra £100 for,for me anyway.If it had got a sd slot or usb I probably would have gone for it.So instead I got the camera connection kit which I'm really pleased with because I can tranfer my photos without getting the computer out and also my wireless keyboard I got with my Acer Revo works ok with it too.
    I wouldn't recommend getting a 16gb one though as it fills up fast!
    Saying all this, I will still probably upgrade to ipad 3 when it comes out.
    Those smart covers sure look snazzy though......

    So you have to upgrade 4.3? Any way to get it on a jailbroken iPhone 4?

    I didn't take the plunge on the first ipad, ( knowingly knowing there would be the inevitable 2nd gen version coming )

    Ipad 2 in White for me, undecided on wifi or 3G/wifi model I will wait that bit longer when there's plenty stock avalible

    I have the mywi on my iPhone atm, and it's a beast! repo.insanelyi.com is where I got mine from it's something like mywi on demand

    I think mywi will be better than personal hotspot tbh, altho it's a battery killer

    I've looked in cydia and installous, can't find it

    Managed to find full version of mywi in the sinful source, put it on my iPad and phone and can now use mywi on demand
