The iPad 2 updates the original iPad with dual-cameras, a faster processor and slimmer profile. Announced on March 2, 2011 and launched in the US on March 11, 2011, the iPad 2 was also designed specifically to work with Apple's magnetic Smart Cover. Apple offers the iPad 2 with a black or white bezel, and 3G models are now available for AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
After what seemed like an eternity of endless speculation, Apple and Steve Jobs announced the iPad on January 26, 2010. In sleek and shiny form factor, the iPad will come to market as by far the most polished tablet PC released to date. Built by Apple to fill the gap between the iPhone and the notebook computer, the iPad comes with numerous innovations, software developed specifically to take advantage of its interface and size, and is available in a number of configurations.
