    Well the things is that price might go up and sometimes the first one gets the exploits and jailbreaks first.

    It is best not to compare different memory sizes since it is different.
    Well the reason I think it would change is because the new hardware, e.g new camera's and other new hardware found on leaks.
    The price will drop over time due to lower demand, but time isn't always available for people who like to spend money fast and for something they like.

    Your reason not to buy an iPad is not really convincing. Apple may take a totally different appraoch when determining their next-gen iPads.

    Ummm... That's called technology. Always moving, always changing. Get what works best for you and live with it when newer/better tech comes out.

    Following your logic, you will never actually buy a device. You will always be waiting.

    Do you like waiting forever?

    no but i dont like that feeling where i get screwed by adopting the first gen of a product like when i bought my ipod touch or original iphone and where a company where there products become inferior to each other within a year

    Welcome to technology.
    At least it is better then Android phones. There is a new HTC phone almost every two months. 1 year time in technology time is a very long time.
