the next announcements for apple are iphone5 (4S? ) and OSX Lion
no indication of an ipad 3 this year, unless they figure out how to do retina screen on a 10" screen and no adverse affect on battery life
i'd say ipad 3 is next year, so get an ipad 2 if you "need" one
Ipad 3 isnt releasing til next year.. No NEW hardware is releasing this year, the iphone 4S just has some changes made to the 4 and the iphone 5 is releasing next year..
For the person asking to wait or buy, think of it this way.. There is always going to be something new the year after, so there is no best time to buy something from apple.. Unless u are the person like myself who upgrades every year on such things like iphones and Ipad so far, there is no best time to wait.. Cause next year when the ipad 3 comes out, u will ask, should i wait for the 4 to come out? Ipad 2 is great by the way.. U should check best buy and try to find an open box, save alittle bit..
