Thanks for remembering this post when you saw a sale.

I never did report back on this. On whim, I searched some Youtube videos and found one showing how to pry open the screen bezel and once it was partially open, it showed what restraining bars and such had to be flipped and cables removed to fully open it. I can't be sure but the digitizer cable seemed loose when when I removed it. Sure enough, when I was done being curious and put it all back together, it worked!

For once, the laws of my last name were on vacation.

It's not a sale, these are the current MSRP ($CAN) of these two devices.

Samsung 10.1 16 GB wifi - $399.99
Apple iPad 2 16 GB wifi - $519.99
Samsung 10.1 32 GB wifi - $499.99
Apple iPad 2 32 GB wifi- - $619.99
Samsung 10.1 4G - $649.99
Apple iPad 2 3G - $649.99

You would think with the sweatshops in China these are manufactured in, the iPads would be cheaper wink.

i wouldnt get an IPad 2, wait for the Ipad 3... It should be out in the next couple months, and will have the retna display.. 2X the resolution of the ipad 1 and 2.... it will also have the A6 processor or an A5X as the rumors are saying.. instead of the A5... Don't buy an Apple product right before they release the next version, you will pay the same price for "old" technology, as their price point always stays pretty constant they just add a bunch more crap into the new version at the same price. The ipad 3 is also rumored to have an 8mega pixel camera as well....

A lot of the current topics relate to the ipad 3 since it is seculated to be released in the next month or so....


How immediately does she want a replacement, if she can wait a month or 2, i would say ipad 3, if she has to have one by the end of the week (or so), then i guess ipad 2 is the only "Apple" option.

Yeah, but a new Apple generation also means closeout/refurb deals on the last generation.

I really like my iPad2.

My son just ordered an HTC Evo View, which looks like a lot of technology for the $. I'm eager to see how that works. It's Gingerbread, not ICS.

Julie has gotten excellent service from her iPad (original) which is obviously a little clunky form-factor wise, now. She ALSO likes having an e-ink Nook. It seems like the (hacked?) Nook Tablet or Amazon Fire are pretty nice devices for the money.

That's one of the problems with Apple's short life cycles of it's different versions of the same product.

Dakkon, as per my last post, the old one is working again so we no longer need a replacement. Thanks for the advice though.

Yep - getting an iPad3 on it's release day. The wife has a Galaxy Tab 7.0 Plus and we both love it, but I want the iPad3.

Tom, your opportunity for Julie appears to be sell the 1 and get the 3. Oh yeah - I love spending your money!

I think there are going to be some nice Tegra3 (quad core with real gaming capabilities) ICS tablets coming out this summer. Tablet tech is moving along as a very fast pace so it's no surprise anything you buy today will be out of date 12 months later.
