Apple Unveils Faster, Slimmer iPad 2

PCWorld: Apple Unveils Faster, Slimmer iPad 2

The increased processing power with the iPad 2’s 1 GHz dual-core chip helps support two video cameras that can be used simultaneously. Yet battery life remains the same as with the first-generation iPad at 10 hours.

“At a special event in San Francisco Wednesday, Apple unveiled the iPad 2, the follow-up to the original iPad it released last April. The iPad 2 features an all-new design along with new features including built-in cameras and a new gyroscope.

At the heart of the iPad 2 is a 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 processor, which should provide a boost over the 1GHz single-core Apple A4 in the first iPad. Apple says the A5 is two times faster than the previous processor, while graphics performance is nine times faster–welcome news for everything from games to video-editing apps like the soon-to-be-released iPad-optimized version of iMovie.”
