So I like me iPad 2 and I use it a lot but I will want iPad 3 for sure. So should I sell it right now for good price? When would you expect iPad 3?

I'd think you will get more for it sooner rather than later. I would imagine there will be a lot more used ipad 2's on the market once the 3 is announced. That would drive the price down. Will the difference be drastic? No way to know for sure.

Why would you ask people in this forum to make choices for you?

It is not even for sure these will be a iPad 3 or even when it would be introduced. Everyone was fooled with the non-introdcution of the iPhone 5! So many knew for SURE the 5 was coming! LOL!

Just enjoy your iPad2 for now and relax.

I see. And what would you do, sell right now or later for less profit?

what i did was buy an ipad 2 last week! i want one now, theres no point spending your life waiting for the next one or youll never enjoy anything.

I would wait.

Yes I would wait too. Sell now and get a few more $ but do without an iPad for a while. Sell later and get a little less but consider it "rent money" for using the iPad until you replace it.

While Feb to Apr are the most likely time frame for the iPad 3 one thing is for sure. No one posting on this forum knows exactly when it will be released.

How do you exchange your iPad for a gift card? can this be done for other devices as well?
