All the stuff Apple sells gets updated once a year. The iPhone line gets refreshed every June, iPods in the fall, MacBooks this time of year. I can't recall a product being refreshed more than once annually. If anything they take longer to get refreshed, like the Mac Mini. This has been Apple's market strategy for a very long time.
Not a single one of those will come close to killing the iPad. Won't even hurt Xoom.
Hey look! someone smart on OCN!
As for the tablets, yeah.. they pretty much all suck. No version of windows will run well on such low power CPU's and GPU's. Hence Windows 8, Which I believe will have a tablet version or something, I remember reading about it, but can't remember the exact details.
I'm comptemplating buying the iPad 2 right away, or wait a littler over a month and get it for my birthday. As for people calling me out on deciding to buying a un-released product.. I'd be happy with buying the current iPad, so anything thats improved on in the new iPad is just a bonus.
