iPad 2 pictures

After nearly a full year of rumor and speculation, Apple unveiled the second-generation of the iPad tablet today during a press event. The iPad 2 will feature a new design that is 33-percent thinner, a touch lighter, and will be available in both black and white. A new dual-core A5 chip should boost its speed dramatically, and front- and rear-facing cameras open up the iPad up to video conferencing with FaceTime. The latest iPad will keep the same pricing structure as the first generation, starting at $499 for the 16 GB Wi-Fi model and topping out at $829 for the 64GB 3G model and will go on sale March 11.
