During a special media event Steve Jobs today announced the new iPad 2 which will be available on the online and retail stores on March 11th. The second gen iPad has all-new-design, 1GHz dual core A5 processor, front and back facing camera and new apps developed exclusively for the tablet.
iPad 2 comes in two color options; black and white, the price and capacity of the models remains the same as the original iPad.
Photo Booth, iMovie, GarageBand and FaceTime extend iPad’s functionality and Steve Jobs was particularly very excited about these apps coming to the tablet computer.
The new design is stunning and Apple also introduces ‘smart cover’ for iPad which protect the display by simply latching onto the device.
Steve Jobs also discussed iOS 4.3 which will be available on the same date when iPad officially goes on sale.
