Apple announces iPad 2 with dual colours, dual cameras and dual cores

As expected, Apple today announced the iPad 2, featuring a new dual-core A5 chip boasting 2x CPU and 9x GPU power, front- and back-facing cameras, a ‘Smart Cover’ system, iOS 4.3, and available in black and white “from day one”.

As was rumoured yesterday, Steve Jobs did indeed make an appearance – in fact, he led the presentation as if he wasn’t off sick at all.

In fact, most of the rumours regarding the iPad I listed this morning have come to pass.

The iPad 2 is due for release in the UK on March 25. It’ll hit the US first, on March 11. There is no word yet on how we in the UK can go about buying one but there is currently no preorders available for US customers.

Full details are now available on Apple’s website.

Oh yes, and if you don’t think the improvements in the iPad 2 are worth it, Apple have knocked about £70 off of the prices of the first generation iPad, and you may also be able to get better deals elsewhere.
