As you probably know Apple announced the iPad 2 today. As expected this was just an evolutionary upgrade, and you won’t need to make any changes to your apps. Really looks like they added features that will be more than enough to keep the competitors away for some time. I really can’t see why a consumer would get any competitors tablet.
Here’s a summary of what apple announced at the event that is somewhat significant:
- A gyroscope was added
- iPad is now thinner, with a slick magnetic cover that doubles as a stand
- The iPad contains an A5 chip that gives somewhat greater performance (up to 2x) and significantly greater graphic performance (up to 9x)
- An HDMI cable
- Two cameras, front and back
Nothing major in there, but likely more than enough added to significantly trounce the competition, and the iPad is now am even more phenomenal gaming device.
What’s really worth noting is the new iMovie, and Garage Band software — only bad side is that the $4.99 price sets the price bar kind of low.
