    ok i either want to buy a 2 or wait till march and buy the 3 reduced. if i get a 2, i will jailbreak just for siri and weather widgets. or do you think that i should just wait. i want a tablet and cant spend more than 350 right now. if i get a 3 it will not be jailbroken. what do i buy?

    I have an ipad 3 JB right now on 5.1.1
    I found it on sale for $465 online. I heard of some deals that go as low as $450 for the base model ipad 3.

    I think if you actually research what you can do with a jailbroken iPad you will change your mind about only wanting to do it for Siri. There are a ton of customization apps in Cydia that put the "vanilla" iPad to shame. I will never use or buy another iPad unless it can be jailbroken on the spot. Check out things like SBSettings, Iconoclasm, Infinidock...or a great all in one customization app is Springtomize. The possibilities are virtually limitless with a jailbreak as long as there is a developer out there to create the app or tweak.

    Without a doubt it does. Also the 1GB of RAM is sweet, especially compared to the measly 256MB my iPad 1 has. I want to upgrade so badly, but my wallet just laughs at me when I try to buy one. :p

    I just hope the iPad mini rumors are wrong about it being based off of the iPad 2. It would most likely be more easier to jailbreak, but the iPad 2 compared to the 3, well, there really cannot be any comparison.
