The much awaited iPad 2 has been revealed. It will be available in stores starting March 11 (the UK will have to wait several days more days for it until March 25) with the same alluring starting price of only $499. The new and improved version is actually not as stunning as we expected it to be, even though it’s definitely better than its predecessor.
We all waited for a front facing VGA camera and now we have it, together with another one on the back. The display hasn’t change in terms of dimensions, as it still measures 9.7 inches, but it’s undoubtedly better in terms of graphics capability: nine times better than the current model. Add to this the same gyroscope that you can find in the iPhone 4 and you get an unprecedented gaming experience.
Another plus for the new iPad 2 is the fact that it is considerably thinner (by 33 percent): it’s only 8.8 mm thick, which makes it even thinner than the 9.3 mm iPhone 4. It is also 15 percent lighter and has iOS 4.3. With a HDMI output, the iPad 2 can be connected to your TV, for an enhanced movie experience or even for a formal presentation. All in all, the gadget is cool, but we were prepared for even more.
