At a special event today in San Francisco featuring a surprise appearance by Steve Jobs (the audience gave him a standing ovation), Apple announced the new iPad 2 with a completely new design that is 33% thinner and 15% lighter.
It features a faster CPU, front and rear facing cameras, a gyroscope and HDMI output.
It is available in black and white on both AT&T and Verizon in the USA.
Apple is also introducing a new ‘smart‘ magnetic cover for the iPad 2.
