Apple Announces iPad 2
Today, Apple is looking to build upon the success of its first generation tablet now that the competition is finally catching up (see Motorola Xoom) and none other than Steve Jobs was on hand to announce the iPad 2.

The iPad 2 doesn't deviate very far from the original formula, but it does add a few notable advancements over its predecessor including:

* Dual-core A5 processor which is supposedly 2x faster than the previous generation A4 while keeping the same power profile
* Graphics performance is up to 9x faster than the first generation iPad

* 33 percent slimmer profile (13.4mm cut down to 8.8mm) with tapered edges and a flat back
* Weight is down to 1.3 pounds from 1.5 pounds
* Dual cameras (rear and front-facing)
* Built-in gyroscope
* Battery life stays the same at 10 hours
* It will be available in both black and white
* Screen resolution stays the same at 1024x768
