iPad 2 Hands-On Videos + Some Thoughts

As we all know, Apple has launched the iPad 2 few hours ago and we can get all the photos, specs, info from Apple.com itself.

What I like about the iPad 2:
– The new A5 chip: 2x faster than the previous iPad + 9x graphics performance. Not to say the iPad 1 is slow, but it’s always better to have a faster processor.
– Thinner & lighter
– Dual cameras. I wont see myself taking photos or video holding up the iPad 2… but I think the front camera will be more useful for self portraits (hehe) and facetime. Older folks would actually dig this cos of the bigger screen. They can get to see faces of their kids and relatives clearly now.
– WHITE! How awesome it is to be holding a white tablet? 😀

To be honest, I think that the Smart Covers that Apple introduced for the iPad 2… is more revolutionary than the device itself.

Smart Cover doubles as the perfect movie-watching, game-playing, web-surfing, do-it-all companion. It folds in all the right places so you can quickly create a stand that holds iPad upright. Or one that lets you tilt iPad into a comfortable typing position. If you prefer to hold iPad, the Smart Cover flips back and out of the way like a page in a magazine. And if you want to shoot some HD video on the fly, the Smart Cover folds in half to expose the back-facing camera. Now that’s something to smile about.

Ok here are some hands-on videos from the web.
