Big, Beautiful Photos Of The iPad 2

iPad 2

Apple CEO Steve Jobs just announced the iPad 2.

Here’s what we know:

  • Dual-core A5 processors to improve speed — graphics will run up to 9x faster while using the same battery life.
  • Front and rear-facing cameras.
  • Gyroscope for position-based apps.
  • 33% thinner than the first iPad at  8.4mm
  • Lighter, at 1.3 pounds versus 1.6 pounds for the current iPad.
  • Starts at the same price: $499. So it won’t be dramatically cheaper as some had proposed.
  • It ships on March 11  in the U.S. — that’s less than two weeks away. March 25 in the rest of the world.
