So, the iPad 2 has finally been unveiled. And its thinner, lighter and faster than ever before. 33% thinner and 15% lighter to be exact.

Its 5mm thinner than the iPhone 4 and weighs only 600 grams! Apple beefed up the specs with a 1Ghz Dual-Core Apple A5 processor, which is bound to accommodate multitasking with the ’Pad. Dual cameras are also a new addition (720p HD on the back, VGA on the front), enabling the new FaceTime feature to be utilised. Audio has been improved with two larger stereo speakers as well as HDMI output. Faster graphics and enhanced battery life (10 hours) also allow the user to game to their hearts content. A gyroscope also found in the iPhone 4 will ensure the oohs and aahs will ensue for any first time Apple user. Special magnetic covers have also been developed, ensuring your beautiful iPad doesn’t get ruined. And you can get it in white! If you’re into that kind of thing (hehe).

A lot of people have been downplaying the impact that the iPad 2 will have but with the prices starting at $499 (around R3500), I reckon sales will continue to soar. Shipping and sales commence on March 11.

Tech it or leave it 😛
