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:
