Since the iPad came out, I've always maintained I'd wait till the 2nd gen. Not because I am not a fan of the current gen, but just because I made it a rule of self not to buy 1st gen Apple products. I'll forget all that and buy a basic WiFi iPad if I win my hockey pool. I am currently in 2nd place, 1 point back from 1st, and have a really good chance of taking it imo. 1st place is about $250. I can probably resell it for that much and get myself the 3G one I want when it gets released next year. Just want to vent my happiness in case I do win.
