Being an Apple Fanboy I am always looking for the latest and greatest Apple products and I typically buy them the day that they come out. Today the Apple iPad 2 event started at 10am PST and I’ve been watching the whole thing. Here is everything that Apple has announced thus far.
Apple sold 15 million iPads in 2010 and gained nearly 90% of the total market share in the tablet market. Apple took the next step in gaining more market share today with the latest iPad, the iPad 2, is now official. The new Apple tablet has a A5 processor that is 2x faster CPU speed and 9x faster graphics speed then the previous generation iPad. All this extra computing power and graphics abilities with the same 10 hours of battery life.
The new Apple iPad 2 has a front and back camera as well as a built-in gyroscope. It 1/3 thinner than the previous generation iPad. Its specifics are .8 mm thick, down from 13 mm in the original. For those of you like me who have no clue how thick .8 thick is… it’s thinner than the iPhone 4 or a little more than 1/4 an inch. It comes in white (will ship from the start in white) and will be available on Verizon and AT&T’s cellular networks. The new iPad 2 starts at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model and goes up in price just like the late model.
Jobs said during his presentation today when confronted about the cost:
“When we introduced the iPad, we said it was our most advanced technology in a magical and revolutionary device. People laughed at us for calling it magical — but it’s turned out to be magical. People didn’t necessarily agree with the price — but ask our competitors now”
The new models will cost the same as the old, starting at $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only model.
