Just as expected today Apple announced the
successor of their extremely popular iPad tablet.
The iPad 2 comes with a dual-core A5 CPU and
retains the 9.7" screen diagonal and the XGA
resolution (1024 x 768 pixels) of its predecessor. Apple has added a couple of video-call cameras to
the iPad 2. The one on the back does 720p video
and 0.7MP images (960 x 720 px), much like the
iPod Touch 4G. The front-facing snapper only goes
as high as VGA on both stills and video. Thanks to those shooters the iPad 2 can now do
Facetime calling over Wi-Fi. The 8.8mm slim Apple iPad 2 weighs just under
601g, which sounds far better than the 730g of its
predecessor. Despite the slimmer profile and the
increased processed power it promises the same
10 hours of battery life. The Apple iPad 2 will launch on 11th March in the
US, Australia, Canada, UK, France, Germany and
Japan. About twenty more countries will join the
party on 26th March. The 16GB Wi-Fi only version of the iPad 2 will cost
$500, while the 3G-enabled units start at $630.
Upgrading to 32GB or 64GB of storage will set you
back another $100 or $200 respectively. The Apple iPad 2 will also come in CDMA and EV-DO
flavor, which will be available through Verizon in
the US. You might be excited to learn that Apple will offer
the iPad 2 in black and white color versions with
the white one available from Day 1. Along with the iPad 2, Apple released the new Digital AV adapter that allows you to connect an HDMI cable to the tablet and stream *some* 1080p
content directly to your HDTV. Videos are output in
720p. The $39 accessory also has a slot for a
charger so you can refill your iPad 2 battery while
using it. Another great news is that the HDMI AV adapter will
be compatible with the iPhone 4, iPad 1 and the
iPod Touch 4th gen. They will only output in 720p
however. Apple will also be releasing a series of colorful
Smart covers for the iPad 2. Those attach
magnetically to the device and protect its display
from scratches. Plus they can serve as an ingenious
morphing stand for the tablet.
