Will you buy the”new” iPad?

iPadAs it turned out, no iPad 3, no iPad HD just the “new” iPad. An incremental upgrade from the iPad 2..a much sharper screen, and LTE. No Steve Jobs magic..but a cute new TV spot.

I have decided…I will not be ditching my iPad 2 in favour of the “new” iPad..the screen resolution of my current iPad 2 doesn’t leave me wanting more and I certainly don’t want to pay the extra $130 bucks plus monthly data fees. What about you? Will you be buying a new iPad…tell me what you think.

    I have not jumped on the “Pad”wagon yet and probably won’t with the new iPad. The retina screen, although very sharp and colourful, is too big for me. If I’m going to scarifice computing power, then I’d like a smaller more portable unit.

    My daughter has a Blackberry Playbook (with new software upgrade) and loves it because it integrates with her Blackberry phone. My wife has Kobo VOX and loves it even with its few quirks. A friend has the iPad2 and loves it. I played with all of them but so far I still like my laptop better because of the Intel i3 processing power, DVD and storage capability.

    The new Samsung Tab AMOLED 7.7” at 12 oz and 10 hr battery life might just do it though. A hands-on trial will help me decide.
