Rob Galbraith: Apple unveils iPad 2, shipments to commence March 11 in U.S.
At an event in San Francisco today, Apple unveiled the iPad 2, an update of the company's popular tablet device (and a key part of our own location workflow). Both 33% thinner and 0.2lb lighter than its predecessor, the iPad 2 features a new dual-core A5 processor, promised faster graphics and possibly more RAM, which should give the device a welcome speed boost when juggling larger digital SLR files. Plus, full mirroring of the internal screen to an external HDMI-connected display, front and rear facing video cameras, an internal gyroscope, the same 10-hour battery life rating as before but no built-in memory card slot or USB port.
