    iPad 2 or PlayBook, both of which will have much higher specs than the current iPad.

    don't buy, it's nearly done it's round and there should be an update within the next few months.

    The new one is likely to be announced in January then released around April time - however it is very unlikely that it'll be cheaper, it'll probably be the same price you'll just get more features for your money.

    I really dont understand how it is so popular? I have a laptop that I can word process and use the internet to procrastinate when I should be revising (hey like now). If I wanted to look like a pretentious noob on a bus, I would sit there with a pipe and holding something by Jane Austin very high so that everyone can see. Remarkably cheaper and a lot less frustrating when it breaks after a year.

    It's not that big at all, so surely some people like the idea of a bigger ipod touch, without the hassle of carrying around a laptop.
    Apple just saw a gap in the market, and it seems to have worked, as every other company are bringing out tablet pc's now. (I'm not saying that there weren't tablets before, but they're alot more popular now)

    I'd certainly wait if it were my decision- I'd be annoyed if I bought it now, and then there was a better one released very soon after.

    I know! at least with apple if you're within the 14 (or 30?) day returns policy they will let you switch the older item with the newer item.

      If they can somehow get flash on iPad 2 then it is definitely worth the wait.

      Definitely wait, the new one should be out in Q1 2011 so you'll regret it.

      There is gonna be a slew of tablets in 2011.
      Apple are gonna address some of the severe shortcomings of the iPad with it's successor. Google have showed snippets of the Honeycomb operating system that will run on the majority of tablets released next year. Then you have the Blackberry Playbook, and even Windows tablets.

      Plenty to come. You would be stupid to buy an iPad now.

      There will probably be a new iPad out next year, but if you like the current model then why not buy now ?
