Video - Apple iPad 2 detailed Advertisement and specifications!

Well first of all there will almost certainly be a tonne of marketing bulls**t from Apple centered around the iPad 2 and I'm willing to bet you will be hearing the word 'magical' a lot in the coming couple of weeks. That aside you are probably also going to be hearing and seeing a lot about how thin the device is and to be fair it is very thing, just 8.8mm thick. It's also lighter than its predecessor, weighing in at 1.3 pounds instead of the hernia inducing 1.5 pounds of the original iPad,
But what about the actual hardware? Well on that front we have a new chip powering the whole thing, the A5. It's a dual cored job, which Apple are saying is twice as fast as the chip in the original iPad and with nine times better graphics performance. In other words it's pretty sweet. Hit read more for details and the video!
What else is there? Well there are now two cameras, one on the back and one on the front. FaceTime is supported of course and you can make video calls between iPad 2 users, iPhone 4 users and Mac users. The iPad 2 also includes the gyroscope already seeing service in the iPhone and iPod Touch. HDMI support is there, and you can buy yourself a matching cable for that very purpose.
There is a white version shipping from day one and memory and price will remain the same.
All in all a pretty weak update really, it's definitely looking more like a stop gap measure until the next iteration of the iPad, much like the 3GS was to the 3G, rather than a new product that will really break boundaries.
