Will iPad 3 Make Its Debut Some Time Soon?

This is another question I have received from some of my friends after the debut of the iPad 2. Admittedly, there are quite a number of features added to the iPad 2, but whether they are attractive enough for iPad 1 owners to throw another few thousand bucks for it is another question. I have already indicated my (preliminary) decision to wait for the next upgrade, so have some of my friends.

There have been rumors saying that Apple would roll out the iPad 3 within this year, but I don’t think so. If I were the decision maker of Apple, I definitely would not do that. It would take a few months before iPad 2 is available in all the overseas markets. There is still no schedule for the supply to Hong Kong. What do you think would happen if Apple announces the iPad 3 a couple months after people have bought the iPad 2? Are they going to refund the buyers of iPad 2 like what they are now doing to those who have just bought the iPad 1. Unless the board of directors of Apple Inc. have suddenly been taken control by someone like our Financial Secretary.

Furthermore, Steve Jobs has high-soundingly announced that Year 2011 is the year of the iPad 2. If iPad 3 is rolled out within this year, what do you think they should call it? Also, I don’t think there is enough competitive threats in the market for Apple to make such a stupid move.

So, if you think you have already been waiting for too long for THE “perfect iPad”, and are still not happy with the iPad 2, you may consider taking the plunge to buy an iPad 1, taking advantage of the saving of about HK$1,000. With the rolling out of iOS 4.3 (and better versions to come in the future), the original iPad is good enough for a lot of meaningful things.
