After months of speculations and rumors, Apple finally unveiled the iPad 2 today. Almost surprisingly, Steve Jobs was here to lead the presentation. As usual the event started with some big numbers: 100,000,000 iPhones in the world, 15,000,000 iPads sold, representing a 90% market share which generated $9.5 billion in revenue for Apple.

Apple’s message today was pretty clear, the iPad is not a tablet, it’s a post-PC device. An indeed it is.

Here is a quick summary of everything worth noting about the iPad 2:

Apparently, you are not able to pre-order the iPad 2, which is kind of unusual. I sure hope Apple will let us do that prior to March 11 as I don’t feel like standing in line for hours.

 

  • When is it coming in.. let’s say Sweden?!

  • Wonder how many original iPads will be on eBay tomorrow morning…

  • I must admit, that it does look amazing, as all things Apple do. 2 core proc and 2 cameras cool but *yawn* really not a shocker.

    All in all great appeal but just a catching up refreshment of the line. Having said that still the best in the market at the moment. Shame I cant stand Apples closed model and will have to wait till Samsung makes something thin and light.

    I’m torn, not sure whether to get this or wait for the HP tablet

    which sounds like it has some pretty cool features.
