Poll: Are you getting an iPad 2?

So Apple finally released the iPad 2 last Friday both in stores and online. With thousands of people hurrying to buy one for themselves, all the stocks were immediately sold out (not a surprise).

On Apple’s US Online Store, the shipping delay started at just 3 – 5 days, which was quickly updated to 2 – 3 weeks the following day and now — it’s up to 3-4 weeks delay when you order online.

A friend in the US lined up close to 6 hours in one branch of Best Buy (where stocks were also limited). It’s also possible people are hoarding stocks (despite Apple’s policy of only 2 per buyer limit) to sell on eBay or bring home to other countries and sell for double the price. I’m still waiting for mine which will hopefully arrive on the 25th.

Just curious is anybody here also bought or is thinking of getting one (even from non-legit sources). I reckon Greenhills will be swarming with iPad 2’s in a week or two.

  2. I really dont go for grey units. When I saved enough money, I bought an iPad last December in the US a few days before they launched here in the Philippines. I was also well aware that the iPad 2 will be coming out but I know that the upgrade would noe be significant and I was right. So Im very much happy with iPad 1.

    Mr. Yuga, can you try comparing motorolla xoom and iPad 2? I read good impressions for Motorolla xoom which is using android ver.3. Just wondering which is better.

    Nope. Upgrades aren’t that significant from the iPad 1. Will wait for iPad 3rd or 4th gen. I’d recommend it for those who don’t have an iPad YET.

  9. If the 2x increase in processing speed, and the 9x increase in GPU does not translate to significant upgrades, well, to each his own I guess.

    Anyway, there are already people selling ipad2 in tipidpc. Ingat lang sa pagtransact specially when paying in advance.

  10. getting one when it arrives in the philippines. will wait for the price to normalize first though. i can wait :)

  11. i want one too..but i have to save money first..i did watch some reviews in the youtube and i think it rocks!!.

    still,i will consider the opinion of one of our posters here to wait for ipad 3.. i still have a long way to thrift money for that one if thats the case.lol

  12. I got my iPad2 64GB wifi last Monday. I passed up on iPad 1 when I saw an opportunity to get it last December because i knew the “2” was coming out. Wasn’t impressed with the Android tablets and was already enjoying the Apple ecosystem. (have a MBP and iphone). I’m using it mainly for email, reading books and comics, surfing, watching movies. The battery life is impressive. I’m getting better than 1.5 days on heavy usage.

  13. Yes, im planning to buy it next month, i really can’t wait to have it.

    I’m thinking of buying it but I want to wait for it’s price to normalize first. Php36k on infomaxx is too pricey for me.. :D

  15. hmmm… will likely get a galaxy tab. i’m already used to android.


  16. Looks like I agree with the guys from Anandtech. I don’t think I would fit the iPad into my workflow either: http://www.anandtech.com/show/4225/the-ipad-2-review/19

    I was about to sell my ipad1 and upgrade to ipad2 and shell out another 25k for ipad2. but upon seeing galaxy tab sale price of 20k, i bought the tab and retain my ipad. Its like having best of both world. I just buy the ipad 2 when it will be official here and maybe the price is down to 19 k like the ipad 1.
