Ok – so its finally here. They have finally updated the UK Apple website to announce the iPad 2. This comes on a day when a non-techie in the office was talking about the iPad 3 being ‘due out in September.’
Do I want one? Yes.
Did I want the original iPad. Yes.
Did I get one? No.
Although its a lovely object I’m already paying twice the going rate for my Apple Macbook so I’ll be damned if I spend the cost of a reasonable windoze lappy to buy this iPad gadget.
Dont get me wrong. I’d love one. If someone bought me one I would be ecstatic – then probably followed by feeling a bit guilty. Its a truly lovely object but I cant bring myself to buy one.
I dont know the UK price for this – but the US one starts at around $440. If it meant that this was going to be around £220 here (wishing for the old exchange rates) then I might fork out for one. But as it stands I’ll wager they will be around £399 here.
Sorry Apple not this time.
