When do you think we are likely to see the new iPads unveiled? Do you think it will be 1st or 2nd qtr. of 2011 or later?

I have heard April '11 somewhere on the net but no one really knows, I asked in my local Apple store and they had no idea when it will be released. I would love to know, waiting to buy one but really feel I should wait until the new one comes out which I hope will have the improved retina display and FaceTime.

New iPad (iPad 2) to Come Late This Year with FaceTime Support [Apple Rumored to Release Next-gen iPad Earlier Than Expected, by Christmas 2010] TFTS – Technology, Gadgets & Curiosities

Seems to think that it will be December this year however I can't see this happening. So long as it is released by March 2011 I will be happy!

There is only one person who knows when it will be released and what features it will have, and he's not talking!

If you want an iPad, buy an iPad.

If you want to wait, you may be waiting quite a long time. Or maybe not. Nobody knows.

Trying to stay more than a week or so "ahead of the curve" is, IMHO, a fool's errand. You buy the best you can afford when you need it, and then enjoy it for a few years, and then buy the next great thing that's out at the time you need something.

I'm sure Steve is building it in his basement right now.

So what happens if the new one comes out and doesn't have one or more of those features? What will you do then?

FWIW, signs are increasingly pointing to spring for the next iPad. If I had the time to chase down the good deals, I would buy a used iPad NOW, enjoy it for five months, then sell it for most of what I paid for it and buy a new one in spring.

This is what I always dread about buying new tech. I finally break down to buy something and then an even better version of it comes out a month later. But if I don't have an ipad now, will I really know what I'm missing out when 2.0 comes out in a few months? What are the biggest things you all are waiting on besides a camera?

I actually don't care about a camera, I'd actually prefer a version without to save money.

I'm looking forward to a thinner and definitely lighter version, and a better display.

You'll probably get all that ... in 2012 or 2013.

There's almost no chance of any of those things happening this spring.
