iPad 2 was finally introduced by Steve Jobs on Mar 2, which still maintains 9.7-inch 1024×768 high resolution multi-touch screen, 10 hours of battery life, the same capacity, pricing as the original iPad, but it is thinner, lighter, faster and owns new front and rear cameras for capturing 720p HD video. "With more than 15 million iPads sold, the iPad has defined an entirely new category of mobile devices," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO. "While others have been scrambling to copy the first generation iPad, we're launching iPad 2, which moves the bar far ahead of the competition and will likely cause them to go back to the drawing boards yet again." It seems that Jobs is quite confident with iPad 2.
