Reader Poll: Will You Wait for iPad 2?

1:05 PM -- Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) is set to announce the follow-up to its game-changing iPad on Wednesday, threatening to steal the show from the other tablets on the market, including the newly launched Motorola Mobility LLC Xoom.

We don't know the specs nor any do we have any confirmed details of Apple's new device yet, but I have a feeling that won't stop a lot of consumers from holding out for the tablet anyway.

If you're not already a tablet owner, take our poll below and let us know how Apple is affecting your tablet purchases plans this year:

If you're still not sure which tablet to call your own, check out the following stories for more on how the competitive market is shaping up.



And, feel free to add your expectations for the Apple event or table musings in general to the comments section below.

I find it funny that out of the 36 responses so far (as I write this), absolutely no one even cares about the Blackberry tablet. RIM is fading into the "other" category very quickly. Their first 2 attempts at a smartphone were miserable, and they're going no where fast. Time to short that stock!!

Well, that and the fact that as people use Apple and Android tablets/phones, they realize how bad RIM is at UI design and usability...

I think the biggest drawback to the PlayBook is that it requires a BlackBerry tethered to it. Even if it's more secure, that's just really not appealing.

My big hope is that the iPad 2 doesn't have so many more bells and whistles that my existing iPad doesn't get turned into a techo-relic overnight. JB

No pony for me, but I have zero interest in a tablet for anything other than reading tech docs, both local and web based, and for that backlit = bad.


Me and my $ can easily sit on the sidelines forever.

This is not completely true.  When people start to learn how to process what they are reading instead of the oppisite than maybe when bad info is past people will be able to get the facts.  


 


The facts are the bridge fuction is there for bb corp users first and consumers second.  It has never been said if there would be an email/calendar native app on the PB.  The Wi-Fi only model is the only verison thats this is even a question about.  Know your facts before making such statements.
