    Hi all, I work in a hospital and recently an application came out that allows me to access relevant patient information right on my iphone (and also an ipad) instead of having to hunt a computer down that may or may not be occupied.

    I was thinking about buying an ipad since the iphone screen is so small and the ipad seems to load screens on this program much faster.

    ANyways, I was wondering how soon you guys predict the next ipad will come out. I can definitely wait a little while as this is more of a convenience rather than necessity i just dont want to buy an ipad and in a few months have it be old technology. I know apple likes to roll out a new product every year but for the life of me I cant remember when the ipad originally came out.

    I also hearda rumor of a reduced size ipad.. is that true? that might do me one better as well because it would fit in my white coat pocket.

    However, there have been rumours of a 7 inch by Christmas.

    But, will you use the features of the next gen iPad:
    Front facing camera,
    More RAM,
    Faster chip,
    Maybe back facing camera,

    If: no then wait.

    If you want one, buy one. If you are content on waiting...then wait. It's not that big of a deal. I'm in love with mine. (3G 32GB)

    Either this is a troll...
    You are really lazy person who doesn't want to scroll down and read other thousands of iPad 2 posts?

    You don't even deserve one.
