Following the hugely successful international release of the iPad 2, it seems particularly apt to ask the question: Will you be upgrading?
If you’re the proud owner of an original iPad then I would guess that it still feels like an amazing device. It’s probably created a niche in your life and is now something you wouldn’t want to live without!
But, there’s a new iPad on the block and it does some things that you kind of wish yours did (even it it’s only beautiful integration with the Smart Cover).
The inevitable feeling of slight dissatisfaction is something that’s an unfortunate byproduct of Apple’s product release cycle, and is deftly discussed by David Appleyard in his article: Thought’s and Reflections on Apple’s Product Release Cycle.
Are you someone who can afford the upgrade but prefers to wait for every second release, or do you prefer to wait until your Apple product is completely out of circulation? Is the iPad 2 irresistible?
Conversely, are you content with your original iPad for the time being, given that it’s still a long way ahead of its competition? We want to know what you think, so post a comment below and don’t forget to vote!
