• Apple announces new iPad 2 arrival on March 11

    Today Apple announced the new iPad 2, which will go on sale March 11th. The latest generation iPad 2 will be much faster, thinner and will feature both front and back cameras. Steve Jobs also announced that the 3G version will be made for Verizon as well as AT&T.

    The iPad 2 is much thinner than the original iPad. It is actually thinner than the iPhone 4 and 33% thinner than the current iPad. It has also lost some weight. It is down to 1.3 lbs. from 1.5 lbs. for the original iPad. As a surprise, it will come in white as well as black from Day 1.

    Here are some of the most notable features:
    • Dual-core 1GHz A5 processor which should be twice as fast as the A4
    • Front-facing camera for FaceTime and rear-facing camera with 720p HD video capabilities
    • Built-in gyroscope like the iPhone 4
    • HDMI output at full 1080p HD through an Apple adapter ($39)
    • Unfortunately the same screen (no retina display)
    • Still no GPS for the wi-fi version

      I had high hopes for the iPad 2 as well. Hopefully the rumor of the iPad 3 later this year are true. Then maybe I will buy one.
