If you were under a rock this morning you probably didn’t hear that Apple announced the much hyped iPad 2.
There were no major shocks to the update, smaller, faster, higher resolution, cameras, etc. That said I’ll be buying the new iPad as I can already see many benefits to having the front and rear facing cameras in the device, and particularly from a work perspective too.
The iPad 2 will be released in the States on March 11th, we get it here in Australia on the 25th. Oh and I’ll be getting either the 32gb or 64gb wifi + 3G version, and I’m going to stick with the silver/black as it looks more business-y compared to the white one and seeing as I use my iPad a lot for / with / at work I definitely need to keep it looking professional.
And in other news there’s still no competitor to the iPad, there’s plenty of pretenders, there’s plenty of potential (assuming they can ever ship a device), but there’s no actual competition to the iPad.
Apple’s market lead is getting big, unsurmountable even.
Good luck RIM, good luck HP, good luck Motorola.
