Are you getting the new iPad? (Poll results)
posted by Daniel P. / Mar 09, 2012, 5:12 AM
The majority of the 1000+ votes went for "Nope". Close to 65% of the people who voted don't plan on buying the new iPad, and apparently won't be getting the iPad 2 as well, since we had a separate question for that.
Second place with 14.48% of the surveyed takes the "I'll wait and see" approach, of those intending to check out a few initial reviews and testimonies first, before they jump the $499 and above gun.
A close third with 14.29% went to the folks who are already pulling the trigger with pre-orders and such, marking a bit less than 30% of people, together with the previous category, who already ordered or intend to get the new iPad.
The smallest 6.95% category went to those who now view the iPad 2 as a pretty good deal starting at $399. If you thought higher screen resolution, faster graphics and LTE wouldn't be that important compared to what the iPad 2 already offers - apparently those who intend to get the new iPad think they are definitely worth a $100, not to mention the coolness factor coming with the "new iPad".
Are you getting the new iPad?
Yep, already struggling with the pre-order page
I'll probably wait to see the initial reviews
Now that the iPad 2 starts at $399, that's what I'm getting

Get over it. I also checked "nope" but Its not about Android. Its that the Ipad 2 is almost on par with the Ipad 3 in terms of specs design etc. and a lot of people are not going to upgrade for those slightly newer features. I for one. My screen reso works for me. Its bright sharp and looks great. Would the higher Reso be better? Yes but not a necessity. I hardly use my camera. So the upgrade of mp's is not important to me. and the slightly faster speed, also not a game changer when the iPad 2 is quite fast and serves my needs right now. Do yourself a favor and pick up an iPad 2 at the discounted price, you'll be a lot happier than with the android tablet. I know I was.

heck no i wouldnt. I already have a phone + large phone tablet.. why would i want a 2nd large phone tablet that does a heck of a lot less than either of my first 2 items. Pick yourself up a windows 8 tablet or an ICS tablet and u will be even happier.

I don't think it's that we are all about android, just the the tech world is starting to see the gradual incline of apple's hardware and don't feel the need to spend the money unlike the common consumer who just has to have that new flashy device. Now don't go spinning my words calling this thing trash or anything. But bumping up the screen isn't enough to sell it for me. And yes the processor bump and graphics bump don't count becuase without them this thing wouldn't be able to power the display. Not to mention the fact that it is thicker and heavier, but with the same battery life.

Are these results indicating the masses might be awaking from their apple induced slumber and seeing the light at last?!

amazing how 2 years ago it was accused of having a strong apple fan base and android fans were severely outnumbered. The "fanbase" is a correlation to actual OS usage. Android outnumbers apple over 2-1 in the real world, the site is starting to reflect that.

I'm interested to see how the pre-orders going to be for this one. I'm sure they will be good, but c'mon...there's like 300 million Ipad/Ipad 2 already out there. No small feat of course. Camera is good, but they really could have saved the cash and just did a front facing camera, but since everybody else has one...new screen...nice, but not compelling enough for me sell my IPad 2. Movies already look good enough and it's not like I watch it for hours on end at a time. The OS is what needs to biggest overhaul. It's just time for some variety with it. I'm sure Apple will soon do something with it.

HELL no I'm not getting it! I didn't buy an ipod when it first came out years ago, why would I buy one now that they doubled the size of it, jacked up the price, and dubbad it an "ipad"? I would prefer to throw my $500 directly into the garbage, cut out the middle man and save me a trip to the "genius" bar. I would gladly pay $500 to avoid talking to pretentious hipster douchebag nerds.
