Apple Releases iPad2
John Borkowski, March 11, 2011
So what’s so great about the iPad 2? First off, it’s 33% thinner and 15% lighter than the 1st generation. Apple continues to prove to us how they can take the most sophisticated devices and make then thinner and higher performing (the MacBook Air comes to mind). The most important feature (we feel) is the addition of a front-facing and back-facing HD camera. This allows for FaceTime, a new feature that was released exclusively on the iPhone 4 last year. A faster processor (Apple dual-core A5 chip) allows for faster web-surfing, improved graphics, smoother apps and an overall better experience.
Many businesses bought the 1st iPad and for them, it’s a valuable asset. “There is a huge and growing acceptance of the iPad into enterprise IT, that, when combined with its popularity, iPad price point, market-leading innovations and a first-in advantage of hundreds of thousands of Apps will propel the iPad 2 deep into business culture”, says Michael Stricker, Social Media Strategist at WebiMax.
So with all the new features and it’s release date 11 months after the original, we want to know how many people are going to be in line at 5:00pm this evening?
