I got my 1gen Ipad for free, sold it about 7 weeks ago for $300 to upgrade. Looking forward to it. It'll be nice to have at the cottage this summer.

Not worth it to me unless you are an Apple Fanboy. Too many android tablets come out in between that can beat out the iPads. I love my Asus Transformer Prime and I think the Infinity coming out will beat out the new iPad as well.

Those are great devices too, but when you are already setup App wise and have an iphone like I do already, no point to switch unless there is a huge difference in the tech.

"Too many Android tablets come out in between"

That statement is soooo true, they try to compete and fail. Apple releases one version per year and every other tablet maker scrambles to catch up, Apple doesn't follow; it sets the bar.

Being called a fanboy is ludicrous, that title is reserved for something that is not really mainstream or a niche. Apple is the most valuable company on the planet, worth more than Google/Motorola & Microsoft Combined.

So basically you're saying everything that is not an Apple product is a fail? C'mon.....ok, fanboy!

But I understand your POV, if I was looking through these all the time, I'd say the same....

Not enough upgrades to warrant buying the 3 now. I just got a 2 for Christmas. I'll probably wait until 4 comes out before getting another one.
Nope Bell and Telus also offers LTE.

Didn't say everything is a fail, mostly just the RIM Playbook... I just don't see the need to flood the market with several varieties that basically do the same thing (every 6 months). An annual refresh is perfect in that it's current tech with enough power to last through the cycle and 100% compatible with previously purchased apps.

Resale value is another selling point, I can sell my original iPad and recoup 2/3 of the asking price of the new iPad... Can the same be said about an android tablet? (really I don't know, they may hold value but given the saturation I'm wondering)

I want my glasses back.
