It’s 33% thinner and 15% lighter than the original iPad, but the screen size remains the same.
Apple says the battery life will be unchanged – up to 10 hours.
It will feature a dual-core A5 processor.
The iPad 2 will have two cameras. The front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime and a rear-facing camera that will capture 720p HD video.
The new device will come in 2 colors. Oh yes. The mythical white iPad will be available on the first day of sales, says Jobs.
The iPad 2 will run on both AT&T and Verizon’s 3G networks.
It includes a new Smart Cover that offers screen protection and doubles as a stand.
A built-in gyro.
HDMI video mirroring, which will let you mirror your iPad screen on an HDTV.
The Operating System
Faster Safari mobile browsing performance.
iTunes Home Sharing (finally).
The choice to use the side switch as either a mute button or to lock the screen rotation.
A personal hotspot to share an iPhone 4’s data connection over Wi-Fi (provided it’s supported by your carrier, of course).
Apple introduced two new apps for iPad too: iMovie and GarageBand. Both will cost $4.99 and will bring the movie and music editing capabilities to the mobile device.
