Apple iPad 2 Hits Canada March 25

March 7, 2011 by
Last Wednesday Apple’s chief executive Steven Jobs interrupted his medical leave to introduce the much-anticipated new Apple iPad 2 - a thinner, faster and lighter version of the original, which will sell for the same price.

The iPad 2, available in black or white, features front and rear facing cameras, a dual-core A5 chip - making it twice as fast as its predecessor - an improved graphics performance (up to 9 times faster), and a thinner, lighter design. The new version also boosts Smart Covers - thin protective covers with magnetic technology allowing your iPad to fall asleep and wake up upon closing or opening - available in 10 bright colours (including 5 in aniline-dyed Italian leather).

The Apple iPad 2 will be supported by Rogers, Bell and Telus Mobility.
