And about time too, IMO..
Thanks for the article.. Good sum up of most of what I read on Engadget's saturation coverage..
On the iPad2 front, I think people are underestimating what Apple are going to release.. The cameras are a given, but Apple needs to up the ante, considering the great looking competition that is in the works (the Xoom, a great case in point). Most analysts talking about the iPad2 are saying Apple didn't do much in moving from the 1st gen iPhone to the 3G or even the 3GS, but that is because Apple had almost no competition in that market. The Tegra2 chip and the Qualcomm Snapdragon has give all the other manufacturers a leg up and Apple are going to struggle to hang on to market share if the iPad2 does not have a good amount of updated features (better resolution, faster CPU, more RAM, etc)..
