    So with Apple announcing the launch of the iPad 3 which they are simply calling The iPad will anyone who currently is using an iPad 2 or original iPad be upgrading?

    The iPad will have a better screen, faster dual core processor, better camera, and iPhoto as well as a couple of new programs integrated for The iPad (which I would assume would be able to be used with older models as well).

    The most important part is that it is 4G which will be about a 10 fold increase in streaming speed for people that watch tv shows and movies on them.

    I have no interest in giving verizon any more money, that is why I only get the wifi iPad. I have the iPad 2, and do not see enough upgrade to merit getting the new one.

    the ipad is too bulky and heavy for my tastes -- I want something about the size of Kindle Fire, but much more powerful and customizable

    I would sell your iPad 2's now, because when the new ones are released on March 16, it's going to be worth less money, and I've even heard rumors Apple might sell the 2 for $299 sometime after the release.

    I would guess about $30, but that depends on how much bandwidth you are purchasing, I do not believe you can get a phone plan, just data.

    They are keeping the iPad 2 around still at a $399 price point, I do not know which size though.

    It is only marginally larger than the iPad2, I doubt that you could even notice the size difference. Do you mean the iPad is too big in general?

    I have a color nook as well. It is ok, no iPad. I did hear good things about the fire though.

    That's what the 16GB Samsung Galaxy 10" goes for, so they might have to lower their price

    Who will, Samsung? I believe that Apple will sell on name alone.

    Yeah I meant Samsung, because one of their main selling points is that they're cheaper than the ipad

    Apple seems to be really gunning for Samsung since the lawsuit.
