First off, here is Steve Jobs’ primer on the iPad 2 if you missed the liveblog:
“Faster, lighter, thinner, cameras, iOS 4.3, built-in FaceTime and Photobooth. iMovie, Garageband, over 60000 iPad apps. 3G on AT&T and Verizon. The same 10 hour battery life. Price starting at $499. Comes in black or white, and has new case called “smart cover.”
Not to mention that the iPad 2 features a new A5 dual-core processor, which makes it twice as fast; graphics will be 9 times faster, and best of all, it’s 33 percent thinner and it’s lighter at 1.3 pounds. We don’t know about the RAM yet, but it’s clear it has at least 512MB, and maybe even 1GB. All this is available next week, at the same price points as the original iPad.
Also, Apple introduces with iOS 4.3, a new version of Safari, and it’s really faster. On top of that, tabs will continue loading in the background, which is great.
The “Smart Covers” are also quite incredible. The front is very much like Apple’s case for the first iPad, but lighter and of course, it has the incredible ability to fold and become a stand. It’s super easy to snap these on and off, but the stand is incredibly sturdy, much better than the old one.
The back of the device is the same as on the current iPad; brushed aluminium. As for the cameras, the back one is 720p HD, and the front is VGA. Apple won’t give out precise resolutions, so the camera is very likely not as good as the iPhone 4′s.
Here are some videos of the device and Apple’s new apps. Check them out:
The iPad 2 is official, and it’s impressive. Though the majority of the publicity is understandably focused on the iPad 2, the original version is still being sold.
