Apple makes iPad 2 official!

In a recently concluded event by Apple, Steve Jobs announced the second generation tablet they simply called the iPad 2.

WiFi 802.11 b/g/n
Bluetooth 2.1 with EDR
720p Back Camera @ 30fps video recording
VGA front-facing camera

It’s only 8.6mm thin, much thinner than the 9.3mm iPhone 4. The older iPad is about 13.4mm thick (so the new one is about 1/3 thinner). The 2 built-in cameras now allow for the iPad to run FaceTime. Same 10 hours of battery life on a single full charge.

The prices of the new iPad 2 will follow the previous SRP of the first generation Apple tablets, as follows.

iPad 2 Prices

16GB WiFi – Php23,990
32GB WiFi – Php28,990
64GB WiFi – Php33,990

16GB 3G+WiFi – Php30,990
32GB 3G+WiFi – Php35,990
64GB 3G+WiFi – Php40,990

There might be some discrepancies with the final price due to fluctuations in the forex rates.

The iPad 2 will be released in the US on March 11 with additional 25 more countries by March 25. Unfortunately, the Philippines is not among them (are we waiting another 9 months to see it being released in the country again, just like the first one?).
