    Looking at getting the Ipad2 in next couple of days if i can find somewhere here that has one, and then sell my Ipad when i get back home. Just for info if you are looking to get one out here and put UK sim in it when you get back DONT get the Verizon version as it does not take a sim card you need to get the AT&T one.
    Been to a couple of electronic stores and Apple in Florida Mall today and no luck....always tomorrow:unsure:

    I think mine will be going on ebay or something like that. It's a shame really but I have no need for two and the rest of the family is all kindle'd up so they wont want it

    yeah I'm not really impressed with myself. The upgrades arent enough to justify even the hassle of the upgrade never mind the money. I can't help liking the look of the case more than anything else and thinner/lighter would be "nice" but argh yeah, overall it's not REALLY worth it I admit.

    Interesting that everyone was saying they didnt anticipate a large upgrade and said most people will be new users which ended up being true in the polls so far but 1/3 of buyers had the ipad1 already. Which is quite a percentage really!

    Thing is, it's going to sell out. So I can make efforts to get one on day one and just be happy or I can delay, ponder, moan, ponder some more and THEN try and get one and be in for a couple of months wait

    I'm in the same boat as Chris! I hate myself for wanting one. I feel it may be an Apple Store 5th Avenue purchase :wink:

    Well I think you can get them engraved? maybe, possibly. Be a great way to remember the experience ;)

    Knowing my history of having to return things to the store, I'm guessing it'd just save a lot of hmming and tutting when getting it repaired if I didn't get it engraved. :rotfl:

    I have told hubby we are not allowed one for weeks now. I had a play with one today and I am very sad to say I now want one. So much lighter and I want a blue cover. All I can say is I am so so pleased they had none or I would have bought one.

    It's grrsome it really is. I didn't really want to get one given I'm happy with the first but of course I just had to.

    It's amazing how much the "few" improvements have changed the feel of the whole thing. I'm even wowing at how great the case is.

    I got the leather smart case but the cheaper one was great too and some of the colours looked really nice.

    I don't even want to see one cause that way I won't lust after it.
    My only regret is not buying the original with 3G :(

    ...and I somewhat regret buying the original WITH 3G

    Now that the iphone can provide a wifi hotspot, I just dont ever need the ipad 3g. To be honest, almost everywhere I go now has wifi anyway and the iphone provides 3g when needed.
