Apple Unveils iPad 2
Apple officially announced the successor of the iPad today. They’re calling it the iPad 2. Here is a run down of the new features:
– All-new design
– 33% thinner than original iPad, and thinner than a iPhone 4 (8.8mm)
– 15% lighter than original iPad (600g)
– Dual-core A5 chip
– Same 10 hours battery life
– Two Cameras
– iMovie and GarageBand ($4.99 each)
– New iPad SmartCovers
– HDMI out via Adapter Cable
– Available in black and white
Pricing will be exactly the same as the original iPad.
WiFi + 3G
The iPad 2 will available in Canada on Friday, March 25, 2011, two weeks after the U.S. release on Friday, March 11. The U.S. is doing a weird 5:00pm launch on March 11, so expect something similar in Canada.
If the newly announced iPad 2 isn’t your thing… then you’ll be happy to hear that Apple has dropped the prices on the original iPad by $130.
Great news for people looking to purchase the original iPad… horrible news for people trying to sell their original iPad to purchase the iPad 2. So if you’re looking to buy used, make sure you don’t spend more than the following:
WiFi ($130 price drop)
WiFi + 3G ($130 price drop)
New pricing is available at your local Apple Store or Apple.com. Make sure to purchase quick, because once stock is gone, they’re all gone.
