In a previous post, I wrote about the deficiencies that I discovered in the iPad 2. I also admitted that I would be a lemming and purchase one on March 11th. I am pleased to publicly announce that, at least in this instance, I resisted the urge to buy anything Apple puts out and calls “amazing.” Let’s face it, the iPad 2 is not amazing. It is just a minor improvement over its predecessor and not worthy of my hard earned cash. I will be holding out for the iPad 3 or 4. Maybe Steve Jobs will relent and provide an SD slot, a micro-USB connector and Flash support. Until then, that cash looks great in my account.
My advice to you is to do the same. Don’t buy this minor update and if you really want an iPad, buy the previous version which is selling at a $100 discount.
