Apple will launch the Ipad 2 today | Mana Blog... for all
Mar 11, 2011

Apple will launch the second model of its successful tablet computer, the Ipad 2 today.
The Ipad 2 will be available in all 236 Apple stores in the US from 5:00pm today. It will also be available at the Apple web store.

Apple is offering a free personal setup service for Ipad 2 customers in its retail stores, which will help with customisation of email, apps, and other things consumers want to do with their new drinks tray that can surf the Internet.

The Ipad 2 boasts some improvements over the original, such as being 33 per cent thinner and 15 per cent lighter. It has a dual core A5 processor, which is a step in the right direction to compete with dual core Android alternatives. It also features a second camera and Facetime, two long-expected features.

Everything else is pretty much the same, however, and consumers will need to think long and hard about whether or not this is a sufficient enough upgrade for the price.
It carries a suggested retail price of $499 for the 16GB model, $599 for the 32GB version, and $699 for the 64GB flavour, the same pricing as the original Ipad. The 3G option will be a little bit more expensive, with a price tag ranging from $629 to $829, ensuring that fanbois will be out of pocket until the Ipad 3 arrives.
