Apple Unveils Second Generation iPad

| Product News

Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the second generation iPad during a special media event on Wednesday. The new iPad is a “complete redesign,” according to Mr. Jobs, and sports a new dual core A5 processor and is twice as fast as the original model.

The second generation iPad includes a nine times improvement in graphics performance, is a third thinner than the original model, according to media outlets at the event, weighs less than the original model by a few ounces, and will be available in black or white versions. Since the new iPad sports a metal back, the black or white option applies to the front bezel.

The new iPad includes AT&T and Verizon support built-in, which means it includes GSM and CDMA wireless data support in the same unit. It also include both front and rear-facing digital cameras.

Apple’s media event is still underway, so be sure to check back with The Mac Observer for additional details.
