Because the iPad 2.0 has the features it has: DO NOT BUY IT. Yes Apple has a new iPad with new features, but now is not the time to buy. First of all Apple had no competition when it released the first iPad. At this point in time Apple's competition is still not even close. Apple had 84% of the sales of tablets last year. While this number is going down, with the release of the iPad 2.0, the sales will once again favor Apple. As of right now Apple only needs to hold its own. It does not need to make a spectacular iPad 2.0. The iPad upgrade is similar to the MacBook Pro upgrade (mostly an upgrade in processor and nothing really interesting). Apple upgraded the processor and the RAM, and added two cameras. Honestly it is not worth $500 or more to upgrade a system that works fine already. The only other upgrade Apple made is slimming down the iPad and adding an option for another color. There is a very good chance that Apple will release another iPad around September. If they do this think of all of the new features they might be able to include: Retina display screen, another processor and RAM upgrade, SD slot, replacing the home screen button with mulit-gestures, a thunderbolt port (which by that time will have a wide selection of products and will allow the iPad to connect to you TV, monitor, printer, external hard drive, ect.), and even more apps designed specifically for the newer version of the iPad. This makes sense because Apple needs a new iPad now to keep up with the tablet market, but with an even newer version of the iPad in September, they will be able to sell the iPad as a Christmas gift. This sequence makes sense for Apple, however it is horrible for all the people who buy an iPad 2.0 now. So do not buy an iPad 2.0.
