The iPad 2 announcement was widely anticipated, as were many of the features revealed. In fact, the biggest surprise was that Steve Jobs himself was up on stage unveiling this giant iPhone 4 new tablet. But what are they key features?
And when will it go on sale? Well, launch date is 11th March 2011 in the USA and 25th March everywhere else.
And how much will it set you back? Well, the prices are staying exactly the same as the current iPad.
It all seems a little “˜rushed.’ A summer launch was widely anticipated but in actual fact it’s to be in the shops in the US in little over a week and internationally 2 weeks later. It doesn’t offer anything (except snazzy “˜smart cases’ which accessories companies won’t be thankful to Apple for) than the iPhone 4 doesn’t really.
So it does seem a little like a “˜big iPhone 4.’ Except it’s not bigger in every way. It’s thinner. As far as tablets go, though, on paper it’s streets ahead of any other device on the market. So if you’re a tablet user, you won’t find a better one.
There’s no denying that Apple have enjoyed great success with the current iPad and Apple fanatics are sure to be queuing up outside shops ahead of its launch.
