As we told you earlier Apple is going to announce a “revolutionary” new tablet (iPad 2) on the March 2nd. So, this happened! Now Apple has officially launched it’s successor to the market leading iPad. So, we bring you the summary of what has been said and told about the shiny new device from Apple and you will see by yourself that why the world is going crazy after it!
iPad 2 is now the first tablet to support dual-core CPU courtesy of Apple A5 chip as it was rumored before. A5 CPU in this case is clocked at 1GHz. In addition, iPad2 includes both a front and rear facing camera. Rear facing camera supports video recording at an impressive 720p resolution. While the front facing one is more humble as it only supports a VGA resolution. Screen size remains unchanged at 1024×768 as was suspected by some sources. Apple is promising double the computing power while 9x the graphics power increase as compared to the original iPad! Despite it’s massive computing muscle battery life remains the same at 10 hours as rated by Apple. That is quite impressive! Another very impressive feature is that iPad 2 is now 33 percent thinner than it’s older but already thin sibling! New tablet will also support 1080p output via HDMI although you will need buy a $29 hardware dongle upgrade for that.
A new cover has also been introduced for the device as described by Steve himself "We designed the case right along side the product. It’s not a case — it’s a cover." So, it is actually a cover that automatically wakes-up or puts the device in to sleep based on the fact that if the cover is on or off the device. It makes use of the proximity sensor to do it’s magic!
Apple made it clear that iPad 2 will be available in both black and white colors right from the day one of shipment. And it will be available from both AT&T and Verizon starting from March 11th in both the colors!
