    Same memory and price. HDMI out is interesting to me.

    Just because they didn't mention more memory, doesn't mean it doesn't have more, right? I don't think they mentioned more memory at the iPhone 4 announcement.

    Engadget's shots of the slides had memory. 16, 32 and 64.

    Oh, sorry -- I meant RAM memory not storage space.

    Yeah... I wish they started the line with 32gb instead of 16gb... :(

    Well, I'll very likely buy one. I'll call it a solid double, which is all you need when you're the unquestioned market leader. No increase in resolution, no increase in capacity. But on the other hand, no increase in price.

    Near...
    I will be buying one. My wife has had an iPad since last summer and it has totally replaced her Macbook for travel. I decided to hold out for V2.

    Got it. I hope so....the original iPad had less RAM than the iPhone 4.

    Phoenix,...
    Do the iPads utilize virtual memory?

    Having models for both AT&T and Verizon will make a lot of people happy.

    I will be getting one only because I like having the latest and greatest and shift all the iPads in the family down one member. :) The one that falls off the bottom will be sold to help buy the new one.

    Strange, I thought it was supposed to ship on the 11th. Not available to order yet.

    People have asked Ryan Block at gdgt.com, he tried to figure it out, but wasn't able to with Apple keeping a close eye on everything. But his gut feeling is that it does have more.

    We might need to find out from iFixit.com when they get hold of one and crack it open.

    Fortunately, my opinion of Ipad2 is the same as my opinion of iPhone 3Gs a couple of years back...

    IF you don't have an iPad... you now have a great choice! Save $100 and get last year's model OR pay the expected price and get some new stuff this year!

    But... if you already have last year's iPad... I see no reason to run screaming and throw it away to buy a new one.

    I think iPad3 will ultimately be like iPhone 4... and represent a far greater "leap" from the original iPad... and thus for people like me already with an iPad... it makes more sense to keep plugging happily along and wait for that one.

    It has some neat new features... but nothing I can't live without while continuing with my current iPad. I think the every-other-year upgrade plan works well with these devices... instead of trying to have the latest/greatest every year.

    True...

    but right now I'd like a job more than a Steve Jobs!
