The amount of memory will make or break my purchase of the 3, tired of mine crashing left and right, with AT LEAST 6 low memory warnings a day.

1 digi textbook = 4gb ? No way ! Thats way too much... I would say 1 textbook would be around 1gb max.. Depends on the compression, scan quality, etc. of course...

I'm finding it kinda odd that companies in general (not just Apple) are still asking roughly the same prices for storage as compared to 2008. Prices haven't really dropped since I bought my second generation iPod touch. I kinda expected we would get 64 GB for the prince of 32 GB by now, but that really isn't the case. :/ Mind you, I'm talking about build-in storage. Not SD cards and such.

I realize the rest of the hardware is better of course, but that goes without saying.

The limit is 2GB (I know a few books were allowed to break that limit but still the average will be well below 2GB)

Even then, so what? You really need ALL of your textbooks with you ALL the same? :p

Agreed, but there is no reason to lower the price when people have proven they will buy it at higher or the same. Why you dont really see good android tablets below 400 if even below 500

Nah, my point is that for some people 8GB will be more than enough. Not everyone wants their whole movie collection on their iPad

What on Earth are you running...? It sounds more like there are some poorly coded programs making a mess of things.

I've never seen a "low memory warning" on an iPad...

I think all we know for sure is that the next iPad will have a higher resolution screen (as is evident in the drop shadows on the text in the image for the announcement invitation).

I do hope that they release a smaller iPad. A ~7-8" retina iPad would be better for me. Give me that with a data only cell plan and I might just drop my iPhone all together. Tired of paying for voice service I rarely use. I have access to phones...i don't need to pay $45/mo just to see how many rollover minutes I can accrue.

I think a lower price point is definitely needed on the iPad 2 to pull in those Kindle fire type people.. I like Glassed am really against the 8gb model and think we definitely need to just have 16gig as the base.

So what kind of tablet would you find the most exciting ?
1) a tablet with an s-amoled screen. (I'm looking for the galaxy tab 7.7 or better)
2) a tablet running windows 8 (finally you can access pc apps, just with the touch)
3) the ipad 3, which introduce high resolution


1 and 3 for me.

Check your error log, they do happen. In my case Facebook was crashing repeatedly due to low memory, but again, that was because the Facebook app is a pile of garbage.

I don't foresee an 8gb iPad 2 selling at $299. The 16GB is currently $450, the extra 8GB does not account for that difference.

Yea but you have to remember that it will be a "last gen" product so they have to sell it for less + the savings from less storage, $299 might not be that far off
