Is the screen any less reflective than iPad 1?

I purchased my present iPad last December. May I "roll over" my Apple Care, if I purchse the iPad2 or must I purchase a new Apple Care?

One thing I wish they had done is reverse the front/rear cameras. I agree that few people are going to be toting around a dinner-plate-sized camera for photos. It's a convenience, but not a necessity. I'd much rather have the HD camera on the front for FaceTime HD purposes.

What would the world be without Steve Jobs and Apple?

"What do you think, are you going to take the plunge?"

YES! YES! YES! and HELL YES!!!...

I would buy 10 of them if I get to see Steve Jobs in good health everytime.
Steve Jobs is "THE GOD" of technology! Thank Goodness for Steve Jobs! I love you MAN...!

Don't be such bursar. By being so close to the pricing, you don't see the big picture. Carriers are now offering sharing plans. Share the bucket of data between devices. You pay a little more, with the flexibility of using the devices separately. What if you want to leave the iPhone at home? what if you lend your iPad to wife, kid, friend, significant other?!? 3G means freedom.... also personally, I'd rather not be broadcasting a wifi signal if I don't have to. I don't know about you, but I don't use the iPad in coffee shops that much, or wait to arrive at the airport. I like to be able to take it out (sorry for the mental image) anytime and anywhere I want. I welcome the 3G version for 130$ more, and the freedom it comes with it. My 2 cents... the 3G is well worth it for anyone wanting to use it while mobile.

I have the iPad1 3G with unlimited data. The question is this. Will I be able to transfer my unlimited data plan to the iPad2 or will I have to start all over again if I elect to go with the iPad2 3G?

If I cannot transfer my unlimited 3G account to the new iPad, I may not get it right away.

I completely agree with mcjones, I'm always looking for the least expensive way to enjoy my electronics... I'm not even going to purchase the new iPad 2 I am going to get the first gen one and use my iPhone 4 as a hotspot (since I have 6GB/month available to me).
The price drop on the 1st gens is incredible!

with Personal Hotspot being added to the iPhone 4 with iOS 4.3- is there a reason to purchase the wi-fi + 3G iPad2? (I'm a cheapskate) meaning, could I save the dough and just purchase the wi-fi only version and share the 3G connection with my iPhone 4?

Yup.

I salute your thriftiness, I'm the same way.
