It was my birthday this passed weekend and my GF got me an ipad. This is great but now that this new rumor about the 2nd gen ipad is coming out early next year I dont know what to do! Should I return it and wait? In terms of the cameras I really dont care but a possible retina screen and lighter model would be sweet. Also seeing that I have an Iphone 4, there are many apps that run only on the retina display and I would hate to miss out on apps because of the older screen. Let me know what you guys all think!

You can use retina iPhone apps on the pad, as the pad's larger size makes up for the lack of pixel density.

In fact current retina apps are pret well suited to the ipad as it is now. I find it VERY unlikely that the second ipad will have a retina display, as the resolution would be INSANE and it would cause major developer fragmentation.

No one thinks that the ipad will be radically redesigned right?

I think you should be grateful with a girlfriend like that and enjoy the iPad

The iPad 2 will have some new features for sure, but the question is if you need these new ( rumored ) features.

No, the iPad will not be "radically redesigned."

If there is to be an iPad 2 next year, it is likely to appear in late April (at the earliest -- Apple can barely make enough iPads to meet demand now!).

If I were you I would enjoy your very generous present from a clearly thoughtful and considerate GF.

100% with you.

I dont think they will make it lighter. Or redesign anything. Theres no need at this moment. Apple will be doing what they do best. Add little things to it, to bring in more turnover. Like the cameras, which i wont be changing my iPad just to take a picture.

Just enjoy the gift dude . By the way. Whats she say to all this returning talk ? lol just curious.

Well, the iPad 2 will most likely have 2 cameras, thinner design, lighter weight, gyroscope (for better gaming) and upgraded memory/processor. If those new features appeal to you, I would definitely return it. I personally would return it, wait for January & get yourself the iPad 2 Just my opinion!

You haven't been around women much, have you?

PS. No new iPad in January. See you next April.

No one can tell you. At this point no one knows what the new iPad will be or when it will be released other than Apple.

Considering that's the #1 complaint about the iPad, I'm pretty sure Apple will quickly try to find a way to cut the weight. I'm guaranteeing you that the iPad 2 will weigh less than the existing iPad.

I am sure this the not appopriate place to post this. However I ordered an I pad on Friday Jan. 8th and said that it would be shipped within 24 hours. So I going to assume that it would be the following Monday. Now where does this exactly com from? Can anyone tell me an about date?

As far as the features of the next generation iPad and when it will be released, only one person knows for sure and he isn't talking!

They are shipped by FedEx from the factory in Shenzhen China and it usually takes about a week... or so... if you are lucky.

Thanks c4. At least I know where I stand. I thought I would get some sort of a confirmation via email.
