Today Show: iPad 2
Spoke with Karl this morning about the release of the iPad 2, which I believe is going to have a bigger impact that the original iteration of the slate.
It should be around a similar price point, but will be almost a third thinner, supposedly a lot faster, and will have dual cameras for video conferencing. It will arrive on our shores on March 25.
After a plethora of slates were released last year – some arguably with more/better features than the iPad, it was inevitable that they were going to meet the challenge head on, and it looks like they have.
I would be a little annoyed if I just bought my brand new iPad around Christmas, and then this one comes out, although Apple has said it is sending out a software update soon. However, this does not mean it will make up for the extra features the new slate will have onboard.
