Apple Unveils iPad 2, with Steve Jobs on Stage :)

A Great News Today !!! iPad 2...........
iPad was hot.... and while still the heat was ON, they threw wine on the fire !!! :) this one looks sleeker and features look better. As we see on the Apple site they claim it to be faster, reliable and in sync with the social media of today, even content creation is there. iPad is my favorite hand-held device as of millions of you.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs returned from his medical leave to announce the iPad 2 at a San Francisco event yesterday. The new iPad is thinner than an iPhone 4, boasts faster processing speeds, and sports two cameras for Apple’s FaceTime feature.

“While others have been scrambling to copy the first generation iPad, we’re launching iPad 2, which moves the bar far ahead of the competition and will likely cause them to go back to the drawing boards yet again,” Jobs said in a statement.
The iPad 2 also comes in both black and white versions, and will be available in the US from 11 March. Prices start at US$499 for a WiFi-only model. There are a total of nine different iPad 2 models, with Verizon and AT&T having their own distinct 3G versions.

Apple has also taken strides in making the iPad 2 more than just a device for consuming media, as its predecessor was. With the announcement of tablet versions of its Garageband and iMovie apps, the Cupertino company is hoping the new iPad will be used as a content-creation device.

In addition, Apple has also designed its own case for the iPad 2, called Smart Cover. The case (below) uses a magnetic hinge, folds into a stand for typing, and will wake or put to sleep the tablet when opened or closed, respectively.
Along with the iPad 2, Jobs also announced an update to iOS. Version 4.3 includes a faster Safari, enhancements to AirPlay and the Personal Hotspot feature. The latter will allow users to share their iPhone 4 cellular data connection over WiFi with up to five devices.
