    There are rumors that the new gen 2 iPad will have an OLED screen (SOURCE).An OLED screen is better then the normal iPad screen in virtually all areas, except for price. When a gen 2 iPad (with an OLED screen) comes out it will probably be around a $1000. Would you still buy it? or go for the cheaper gen 1 iPad?

    Digitimes has been wrong before, so I am not surprised if gen 3 is the one with the OLED screen

    Personally I am getting the gen 1 iPad.

    You have to take into consideration that the next iPad is at least 8 months to a year away. Price can change pretty considerably on technology in that amount of time.

    Indeed, but knowing Apple and their "100% mark-up" -- I suspect they'll keep the prices high on purpose

    They may introduce a second model with the OLED screen, but I can't see them getting rid of the 500$ price point because they want them to be decently affordable to everyone.

    You also forget the OLED screens perform less-than-well under sunlight.

    I'm fine with the iPad's screen as it is; it seems to be one of the most loved features. I'm saying this is false.

    I'll never pay that much, I'm still kind of mad at myself for spending $700 on my 64gb.

    The iPad just came out. I think this is false too.

    The ipad 2nd gen will be more or less the same price as the ipads we have now.

    Or cheaper like they usually do with their second gen devices.

    Hey, William (and everyone else reading this).

    I've actually decided that I'm going to wait for the next generation.
