iPad 2 Starts Shipping March 11

Apple iPad 2

The new Apple iPad 2 has two cameras, it’s two times faster than the original iPad thanks to the dual-core Apple A5 processor, and is now a third slimmer and a bit lighter than its predecessor.

iPad 2’s two cameras will not excite photographers, but they’re there in case you need to take a picture: the one in front is for video chat while the other one at the back can capture 720p HD videos.

The new iPad 2 sports the same 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen and delivers up to 10 hours of battery life just like the first one. iPad 2 with Wi-Fi will begin shipping on March 11: $500 for the 16GB model, $600 for the 32GB model, and $700 for the 64GB version.
