For those of you who passed on the first generation of tablets in hopes of owning an iPad 2, your wait is over come March 11th. Apple has just officially released details on the device that is likely to become the benchmark to which all other tablets of 2011 are compared. Features include:
- an all new design that is 15% lighter and 33% thinner than the original iPad (making it even thinner than an iPhone 4)
- available in two colors – black or white
- new dual-core processor (A5 chip), with graphics that are up to 9 times faster
- rear and front facing cameras with “FaceTime” and “Photo Booth” software
- iOS 4.3
- HDMI out
Oh and don’t worry, Apple is releasing models that work with both AT&T and Verizon. “The year of the tablet” or “the year of the iPad 2″… you decide.
