    First one just came out. A bit early to be speculating about the next one, don't you think?

    Well, there is no date as of such. They can launch it tomorrow but that's not likely as they just launched the first one.. If they do launch the iPad 2g like they launched all their other products it's gonna be next year, yes.

    With the website still showing 7-10 days shipping I would say demand is still higher than supply so very doubtful a gen 2 is in the works at this time.

    EXACTLY!!! That was the same thing I was thinking. I've also been watching the ship times for the iPad. Generally speaking...Apple products are ready to ship within 24hrs (except high demand items like the iPad).

    So as long as demand remains high for the iPad...there is no real incentive (in the short term) to move forward with a version 2. And besides...the iPad was only released in March, 2010 (May, 2010 internationally)...so it's only be out a little over 4 months (2 months internationally).

    Will the 2nd gen iPad look like the iPhone 4? I am going to wait for the 2nd gen in hopes that it will.

    I have been saying this on these forums a lot, but I believe the iPad 2nd Gen. will be launched this Fall. Not sure whether it will be September, October or November, but at some point this Fall we could see an iPad 2nd Gen (maybe). I say this because Apple has been very secretive with iOS 4 on the iPad, which would lead anyone to believe that a 2nd Gen. iPad may be launched alongside iOS 4 for iPad. I probably won't be buying an iPad until 2nd Gen, but I can see why those that already own one wouldn't want a new one to come out this Fall.

    Also, I think the iPad is AMAZING as it is BUT it lacks a front-facing camera- which is one feature I think is absolutely necessary on a device of this nature (tablet) and cost ($500-$829).

    The 2nd generation iPad has probably been in the works since before the current model was even released. Generational changes are just as much about marketing as they are about technology. The end of life of this product has most likely already been determined and its successor is already on the drawing board.

    Boy will you be upset if it doesn't look like the iPhone! Meanwhile, I am going to be enjoying my iPad right now... today... at this very moment... while you wait for a cosmetic change that might or might not even exist.

    I completely agree. I don't think it will be a big update, might even just be an increase in RAM to go along with multitasking.

    iOS 4.1 for the iPad is rumored to hit in November and I predict we'll we see the new model then, right in time for the holidays.

    I don't think we'll see a camera or other major revision until next year.

    I dunno, releasing a new iPad six months after release would really **** off the early adopters.

    And what makes you believe that Apple would care about that? The Apple I know probably wouldn't care

    And let's be honest, it would re-energize ipad sales for the holidays and every early adopter who was mad would be just as happy to buy more Apple products so Apple really doesn't lose anything.

    True, they could just give Apple Store credit like they did with the first iPhone to appease the masses.

    I can certainly agree with the logic for an updated or improved iPad in time for the holidays...since it's always good to have "new news" to generate sales at that time of the year.

    But...I think one thing that could throw a "wrench" into the normal timing for an improved iPad for the Fall/holidays is if the sales of the current iPad continue to be strong.

    The current iPad (released in March in the U.S.)...still seems to be selling strong 4+ months later...based on the 7-10 day shipping time at the U.S. Apple Store. Apple (like any other company) would probably like to "milk" all the profits/sales they can from the current iPad before launching an improved version.

    We will have to wait and see what Apple does.
