For The iStans: Apple Announces The New iPad 2!

- By Bossip Staff

Here we go Apple Stan’s get your credit cards ready!

Apple CEO Steve Jobs briefly emerged from his medical leave and walked on stage to standing ovation Wednesday to unveil the second generation of the popular iPad, which will go on sale March 11 in the U.S.

Jobs looked frail as he appeared in his signature black mock turtleneck, blue jeans and wire-rimmed glasses.

“We’ve been working on this product for a while, and I just didn’t want to miss today,” Jobs said. “Thank you for having me.”

The next-generation tablet computer has a faster processor than the original iPad’s. As expected, it comes with two cameras for taking photos and video chatting. The battery life will be the same as the original — about 10 hours of usage and a month on standby.

The iPad 2 is also thinner — 8.8 millimeters instead of the current 13.4 millimeters.

“The new iPad 2 is actually thinner than your iPhone 4,” Jobs said.

The original iPad, which burst onto the scene last April, was more popular than analysts imagined. Apple sold 15 million in nine months.

The iPad was used for checking e-mail, surfing the Web, watching online video and other personal media tasks, but as the number of small applications designed just for iPad grew, the tablet made itself at home in offices, shops, restaurants and countless other professional and hobbyist settings.

“The hits just keep on coming.”, “The rich get richer.”, etc, etc…

    Steve Jobs should change the name of his company from Apple to Apple Jacks, because that’s exactly what they do with their reiteration of products that introduce features that the last model should of had. And they also ensure me that P. Diddy didn’t event the remix. Apple did…They rehash the same old stuff, make it slimmer and slap on a “new and improved” label and people gobble it up like bread when it first introduced slices.
