Should iPad Owners Upgrade to iPad 2?

Many early iPad adopters may feel that it's too soon to upgrade from the original iPad to the iPad 2. However, with the iOS operating system now being embraced by corporate America, and with a fast-growing number of iPad-specific business and vertical market applications being released, business users will probably want to upgrade to the iPad 2 in order to take full advantage of the video conferencing, improved web surfing capabilities, as well as the significantly faster, thinner and lighter weight design.

The ability to connect the iPad 2 to an HD monitor or television and use the tablet as a presentation tool is also an enticing reason for business people to upgrade.

If you're on the fence about whether or not to immediately upgrade from the original iPad to the iPad 2, on or after March 11th upgrade your existing iPad to the new iOS 4.3 operating system and experience the improvements to functionality that this update offers. Perhaps you'll discover that this added functionality is enough to hold you over until late-2011 or early-2012, when Apple will most likely introduce the iPad 3, which will probably support 4G (as opposed to 3G wireless Internet connectivity). A 4G wireless network provides significantly faster Internet access.

Despite the tough economy, if you have the economic resources to immediately upgrade to the iPad 2, you'll be one of the first to experience the most advanced gadget released thus far in 2011, and you won't be disappointed.

With the exception of making Safari for iPad able to display Flash-based websites and animations, Apple has added virtually all of the features and functionality that were missing from the original iPad, and has done a remarkable job designing the new iPad to be more comfortable to use and easier to safely transport.
