iPad 2 Official – Available in Black and White from March 11 2011
With Steve Jobs walking on stage declaring “We’ve been working on this project for a while, and I just didn’t want to miss this” the iPad 2 was announced.
The event was as buzzy as usual and as soon as everyone was told to switch off their phones one thing was on the crowds mind. iPad 2 – what will the changes be?
Well – let me tell you…
It’ll be available in black and white from the start as well as playing nice with AT&T and Verizon from day one!
One of the most startling things about the ipad 2 â€” it’s dramatically thinner. 1/3 thinner – 13.4 mm down to 8.8mm. It also weighs less than an iPhone 4!
The iPad 2 also comes with HDMI mirrored video output which can be squirted onto your big telly via the $39 HDMI cable.
I’m in a flurry watching the other other announcements but here’s a quick slice for you hungry Gadgety readers 🙂
9.7-inch LED with a 1024×768 pixel res with that anti-fingerprint coating – no Retina Display this time.
A5 1GHz dual core system-on-a-chip
Rear: video recording HD (720p) up to 30 fps still has 5x zoom
Front: VGA up to 30 fps
3 axis gyroscope
Ambient light sensor
“The Smart Cover and iPad 2 were made for each other. Literally. Built-in magnets draw the Smart Cover to iPad for a perfect fit that not only protects, but also wakes up, stands up, and brightens up your iPad. Thatâ€™s not just smart. Itâ€™s genius.” $39 for polyurethane and $69 for leather.
The iPad 2 will be available in the US on March 11th and the UK, Canada, Europe and a load of other places on March 25th.
The prices are as the original iPad – starting at $499.
