Apple iPad 2

Steve Jobs Introduces the iPad 2 to the World

Steve Jobs took the stage at today's Apple event to introduce the iPad 2. If 2010 was the year of the iPad, the next generation will take 2011 into tablet overdrive. As expected, the iPad 2 will be faster with the brand-new A5 chip, dual core processors, and a major update to the graphics — up to nine times faster.

Additionally, there will be two cameras (a rear and front-facing camera) as well as a gyroscope for awesome game time fun. Dramatically thinner and lighter, the iPad 2 will come in two colors (black and white), will be 33 percent thinner than the first-gen iPad, and will come in at 1.5 pounds. In fact, it's thinner than the iPhone 4! The prices will stay the same, starting at $499, and will be available on both Verizon and AT&T 3G networks. Bonus — you won't have to wait long to get your hands on one either; both colors and all versions of the iPad 2 ship beginning March 11. Get more details on specs after the break.
