Apple iPad 2

Steve Jobs made a surprise appearance today to introduce us to the iPad 2 ($500-$829). About 33% thinner than the current iPad (which makes it thinner than the iPhone 4), the all-new iPad features Apple's new dual-core A5 processor for faster everything, as well as a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime, and a rear-facing camera that captures 720p HD video. It's also got a built-in gyroscope, HDMI video output at 1080p HD ($39 cable required), 10 hours of battery life, and the same 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen. Choose from black or white in 16GB ($500), 32GB ($600), 64GB ($700) sizes. If you want built-in 3G, you'll have to pay a little more — 16GB ($629), 32GB ($729), 64GB ($829). Also announced were iMovie ($5) and GarageBand ($5) for iPad, and a new magnetic Smart Cover ($39-$69).
