The iPad 2 is now shipping within 24 hours for the first time since its March 11 launch. Soon after Apple released the tablet, iPad 2 devices took up to a month to ship. Shipping times improved over time and were even cut to 1-3 days a couple weeks ago.

With rumors regarding a third iPad or iPad HD floating around, it would be smart to hold out on purchasing an iPad at this time. While the next iPad may be more expensive, it would be smart to wait and see what Apple is up to.

If you haven’t already purchased an iPad device, are you going to purchase the iPad 2 now or wait until the third iteration launches?
