Hey folks, Apple has launched the iPad 2 with some pretty cool improvements...
The new pad gets:New Dual-core A5 processor = up to 9x faster performance, better graphics
New, thinner design = 33% thinner and 15% lighter
Two cameras (front and rear) = FaceTime, HD video shoots, Photos, Skype, etc.
New gyroscope and accelerometer = even better detection of where you are plus a major win for games.
New Smart Cover = no need to spend extra on this accessory. The magnetic cover even acts to sleep and wake the iPad and folds into more positions than Kama Sutra (acts as a stand).
All this and yet the same 10 hours battery run time. It will ship (on March 11, 2011) with the new iOS 4.3 mobile OS. The 3G enabled versions will run on either AT&T or Verizon 3G service (but not both). The screen resolution will remain the same for now and prices will range the same $499 (16GB Wifi) to $829 (64GB Wifi+3G).
I don't have enough info yet (beyond what is out there all over the web so I figured why not started a thread about this for now while we work or getting more info. Thoughts?
