Smart Covers for the iPad 2

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad" @ 04:00 AM

"Now here's something that really made me say - "wow!" I'm pretty sure most iPad fans also felt the same way. Together with the announcement of the iPad 2, Apple has also introduced the iPad 2 Smart Covers."

These covers are really slick, but you don't appreciate them until you watch this video that Apple has posted. They will also be available on March 11th, and come in a variety of colors and can either be polyurethane for $39.00 USD or in leather for $69.00 USD.


Thoughts on the iPad 2

"Reactions are mixed on Apple's iPad 2 announcement. Although the new iPad held some surprises, what most caught the eye of analysts we talked with was that CEO Steve Jobs, out on medical leave, showed up to unveil the next-generation tablet. The announcement "started as an A+ for Steve Jobs presenting and the testosterone contained within the presentation," Giles Nugent, instructor at the SAE Institute, said by e-mail."

I watched the keynote as well (you can too right here at Apple's site), and it was nice to see Jobs up there on stage right where he belongs. But, unlike some analyst's opinions, mine is that the iPad 2 is quite an upgrade from the current version and well worth purchasing. Coming in at 1/3 thinner with twice the processing power, it features a front VGA camera as well as a rear facing camera capable of capturing HD video and 5x zoom for still shots. You can also purchase it with 3G to work with either Verizon or AT&T. And they have done all of this yet can still keep the efficiency of the iPad version 1 as the iPad 2 will offer up to 10 hours of battery life, as well as the month of standby power. And in addition it supports HDMI output and compatibility with iMovie and GarageBand. Lots of improvements and it will sell at the same pricing points as the original iPad. Seems like a winner to me, what are your thoughts?


Tablets: Head-to-Head With the iPad 2

"You might recall we ran this comparison about a month back when HP's TouchPad was announced, but now we're back with a full set of 2011 devices as Apple's brand new iPad 2 has joined the fray."

By now, many of the questions about the iPad 2 have been answered (except memory), and the head-to-head comparisons have some real data to allow you, the reader, to decide who will be legitimate challengers to the original iPad. Funny, but I like certain features from each of these tablets, but I can't afford all four (when they finally are able to be purchased). For me, the iPad is a known quantity, and has only gotten better, but I'm still fascinated by the competition, especially the PlayBook, with QNX, and its smaller form factor. I think that I might like something that fits in a (large) pocket, but has a bigger screen than my iPhone.

Apple Media Event Tomorrow, Any Ideas?

"Apple is holding a media event on March 2nd, and it's about the iPad 2 for sure. Get news and analysis as it happens by tuning in to the Hardware 2.0 live coverage event."

I think it's pretty likely the iPad 2 announcement will be part of this event tomorrow, but what else do you think will be announced? Any thoughts?

iPad 2 on March 2nd?

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Events" @ 08:00 AM

"Apple began sending out invitations to a media event on March 2nd, an invitation that more than hints it will be the expected iPad 2 announcement. The invitation features a iCal-like calendar page with March and "2," along with a tear-away that shows the corner of an iPad underneath."

A not so subtle hint, with the iPad peeking around the corner. The event will be held in San Francisco at 10am Pacific time. And hopefully today we hear about a new lineup of MacBook Pros. Or do you think they will combine it with this event?

An Amusing iPad 2 Spoof "Review"

Posted by Jason Dunn in "Apple Talk" @ 10:00 AM

It goes off the deep end after the 4 minute 30 second mark, but overall this is quite clever and funny - I'm amazed the things this guy was willing to do with his expensive 27" iMac!
