Note the iPhone's release pattern so far: - First iPhone (The wow factor) - iPhone 3G (First redesign) - iPhone 3Gs (Improvements on existing design) - iPhone 4 (Massive improvement and redesign) - iPhone 4s (Improvements on existing design) if the iPad follows the same pattern: - First iPad - iPad 2 - New iPad (3rd gen) - New New iPad (4th Gen) To me, the 4th gen may be the one REALLY worth the wait. And they're bound to have a redesign next year since they skipped it this round. I've always told people: "Get it Today if you want/need it. Or you'll be waiting forever." But this time.... I was dead set on getting one, but I can't seem to displace this from my mind.
