The Apple iPad 2 will be available at Best Buy stores on Friday, March 25 at 5pm local time. We recommend that you get there early!
An hour ago, Apple CEO Steve Jobs delivered a much anticipated keynote presentation from San Francisco, rumored to be the unveiling of the iPad 2...and the rumors were right. The iPad 2 boasts a newer, sleeker look with new hardware and new software. Here’s a breakdown of what you can expect from the second generation iPad:
Thinner, lighter, faster
Dual -core A5 chip
33% thinner, 15% lighter
8.8mm thick, weighing 1.3 pounds (thinner than iPhone 4!)
Available in black and white
Attaches magnetically, aligns perfectly
Folds into a stand for typing and watching
iPad Software Update:
Airplay enhancements – stream content from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch to your HDTV via Apple TV
iTunes Home Sharing – play your entire iTunes library from anywhere in the house
iPad side switch – customize the switch on the side of your iPad to lock the screen rotation or mute the volume
Personal HotSpot for iPhone 4 – bring wi-fi with you wherever you go
If that weren’t enough, iPad 2 also doubles as skateboard! I kid, I kid.
