A recent article posted by Maddy Rowe on OnlineSocialMedia.net talks about what features we may see when the iPad 3 is unveiled, this seems to have sparked a debate where people are saying that they will wait for the iPad 3 rather than buy the iPad 2.
Rumors have been suggesting that Apple will release an iPad 3 in late 2011, obviously these rumors could turn out to be inaccurate, however they seem to have been enough to scare some people of the iPad 2, let’s face it who will want to buy the iPad 2 if an iPad 3 is released later this year with more advanced specs including a higher-resolution camera and a retina display?
Comments on OSM’s article suggest that despite the iPad 2 being a vast improvement over the original iPad it is not enough to convince some Apple fans, they would rather wait until late 2011 for iPad 3 and if nothings shows up they will wait until March 2012 which is when many believe Apple will reveal the next-gen iPad.
We are currently skeptical about another iPad release in 2011, this is because Apple tend to roll out product updates annually (we have seen this with the iPhone and iPod Touch), however we can also see how the iPad 2 may struggle to compete with some of their competitive products which boast much better camera resolutions, 3D capabilities and 4G connectivity. Will Apple rush out an iPad 3 to stay competitive or will they stay patient and release the iPad 3 in 2011? Let us know what you think in the comments section below.
We would also love to hear whether the iPad 3’s 2011 release rumors have put you off buying the iPad 2, if it has let us know what you expect from the next-gen iPad?
