Judging by mobile OS lifespans of cellular phones (iPhone 3G choking on OS updates after 2 years). Android phones choking on Android updates after 1 year-1.5 years. How long do you think the April 2010 iPad life span can realistic last. I am talking about real use. Games etc Obvious email basic browsing will make it viable for up to 3 years. But I think 2 years tops for standard regular performance. Any one want to further comment?
