My friend bought an iPad 2 four/five months ago, and within our group of friends, all of us would always play with her iPad. So, I brought in the discussion today if anyone in the table was going to purchase the new iPad. She got so defensive. She said "WHY? Why buy the new iPad? So what if it has a new resolution and better camera, that's it? Just buy the iPad 2 for -$100 off." I think she felt that when someone in our group buys the new iPad, we would stop using hers and she would feel "out of style" with the old iPads. I think this is true. Because I have a Blackberry and whenever they update, I never feel the need to get the new ones, and same with my friends. But I know if I had an iPhone I would feel like it's mandatory to get a new one. Even I always ask my friends "Is this the old iPhone? Why didn't you update it". What do you guys think? Do you always update to the next one?
