    Rumor also has it that they plan on releasing a new iPad on Steve Jobs' birthday, February 24.

    ^^^Yep that's all over the news and probable. I actually think it's tacky. If Apple wants to honour Steve, they should do something else.

    Sentiment. This can get touchy... How can you honour someone with the launch of an iPad or whatever mundane object, here today, gone tomorrow ? Steve Jobs is far more than a mere commercial reason. He was a great man. Needs to be revered. Not marketed.
    Edit: let me add: Apple (for that matter all of us) need to remember him. Yes. But not use his name, or his birthday, to launch a product.
    I don't agree, hence the "tacky" term. I couldn't think of any other word.
    My opinion. That's all.

    I can respect your opinion.Mine is quite different.I would think it would be a nice gesture to honor Mr.Jobs with the release of a new product that he probably had a lot to do with the development of.Marketing?...probably but who was the master at marketing? Mr. Jobs.

    Like i said i respect your opinion...

    I do respect your view. I still think the two things shouldn't be put together. Steve Jobs IS Steve Jobs. Not an iPad.

    I would welcome a lower priced iPad 2, since I had to ditch my Christmas plans to get the original iPad 2 after my last laptop's battery took a nosedive.

    DigiTimes is worse than BGR when it comes to reporting rumors.

    I'm thinking it will be the iPad 3 and the other two will lower in price. It would be nice for Apple to lower the original ipad to $200... but that will never happen.

    I hope they don't release the new iPad on his birthday, it's tacky as hell. They should open another lawsuit on his birthday. Thats what he would have wanted.

    It's going to be a iPad3. Nothing else. There is no market for a 7" iPad.

    The Kindle Fire is a completely different market. When it comes to tablets, the size is perfect. Apple creates the market and since they haven't released a 6-7" iPad yet. There is no market. How many Flyers have sold.... yep... that many.

    Being released on Jobs B-day isn't a bad thing. He created this market, releasing this on his B-Day is marketing. He would have done something similar.

    Yup. Had to stop posting for awhile as my last laptop wouldn't stay on. It would get too hot and shut down.
