Besides Dual-Core nothing exciting...
2x faster CPU
9x faster GPU
Enough for me.
Will the dual core speed up the loading of web pages and no more checkered paged when scrolling down?
No mention of RAM increase??
I would definitely upgrade just for this reason!
They won't mention that.They never did for the first one either. It'll be 512MB
Apple doesn't talk about RAM on iDevices. I'm sure apps like iMovie benefit from or require more RAM than the original iPad had
Lighter, thinner, 2 cameras, same battery life, choice of colors. Seems like a decent upgrade. Agreed, it is not earth shattering but neither is it totally lame. If I had an iPad, it would be a more difficult decision, but since I don't it is an easy one.
Also thinner and lighter.
Aside from a higher res screen...what exactly would make it exciting for you?
I mean you have a Dual Core processor...2X faster CPU, 9x faster graphics, 2 cameras, 33% thinner, lighter, HDMI out...what exactly more do you want?
I'll be disappointed if this thing only has 512MB of RAM.
As expected its only a minor spec update. Most of us were expecting (or at least hoping) for dual core. I for one am surprised they made the jump.
I can't say that I'm underwhelmed most because I wasn't expecting much this time and apple disappoint in that department.
Very disappointed as well. I'll probably grab an Android tablet and definitely revisit the iPad3 when it comes out.
Most disappointing thing though wasn't the very anemic hardware upgrades, but the lack of OS upgrade. Well it's still going on so I'm crossing my fingers, the OS is what can still sway me. But I don't see this as being different than the usual Apple release cycle of revolutionary...money grab...revolutionary...money grab. It's a compliment to a company that are absolute genius at marketing.
The event isn't even over...
Hell at the same price point even. Sell your old one for $300 and you get a new upgraded ipad for $2-300 bucks SOLD!
That surprised me as well. I was expecting iOS5.0 to be showcased but instead they showed off iOS4.3
Now I have to decide if these "October" rumors are true.
If they are, I might wait.
If they're not and the next one is gonna be in 2012...well then this is a very nice upgrade for a whole year and I'll probably jump in now.
I am certain we'll get iOS 5 for the iPad this summer. So a nice little hardware upgrade now and a nice little software upgrade in the summer...it works out to one super-fine upgrade over the course of the year.
Yeah I'm debating this. I have my 64gb 3g with apple case on CL but no one is biting at $540. Lol looks like 300 might be the magic number.
Why? That's plenty for a tablet running iOS. Same reason Apple doesn't mention CPU speed, it's irrelevant.
I think this is it till 2012. Nice improvements apps will get better, 1080p support and they run the risk of pissing off alot of people with a new one in 6 months.
The changes are nice, but I'm still selling iPad 1 for a MBA. Better product for what I need.
Like I said, iPad 2 changes are nice, but I'm waiting for iPad 3 to even consider one. Not ENOUGH different.
Who knows, but I'd guess they aren't true.
Will wait for ipad 3. We all know this is a stop gap until ipad 3 but I really do want some tablet.
I'll be completely flabbergasted if they don't at least address notifications, that's just such a rotten underpinning that needs to be excised. All that developer power wasted on imovie, photo booth, garage band, etc. Imagine if they put that dev power into the OS instead.
If I don't have the iPad 3G and an iPhone 4, I'd get this. But for now, I'd sit this one out.
