On March 2nd, Apple announced the iPad 2. This new iPad included a FaceTime camera, a faster processor, thinner design, and a choice between a black or white colored iPad. Apple has decided to drop the iPad case they designed by replacing it with a cover that magnetically attaches to the device. The cover comes in many colors, and can be used to cover the screen when not in use and as a stand, by folding to the back . The new iPad can also mirror whatever is on the display through either HDMI, VGA, composite, and component cables. It is also compatible with the wireless Apple keyboard. Apps that come with the iPad and that can be purchased include FaceTime for video calling to friends on another iPad 2, iPod Touch 4th generation, iPhone 4, and on a Mac. The iWork suite of office applications can be downloaded as well as iMovie, Garageband and iBooks. If you have other iOS devices or an Apple TV, you can enable AirPlay which will have all content you have on your iOS device be shared on another iOS device or Apple TV. The new iPad will be released on March 11th in stores and online, and will sell starting at $499 for the Wifi 16 GB and $629 for the 3G model with 16 GB of storage for the AT&T; and Verizon networks.
