The second generation of Apple's venerable tablet - iPad 2 - improves on its predecessor in both design and hardware. The iconic tablet is now thinner than even the iPhone 4 at 0.34" (8.8mm), and weighs just 1.35 pounds (613 grams). The big changes on the inside are a 1 GHz dual-core Apple A5 chipset, which provides 6x the CPU and 9x the GPU performance of its predecessor. All the while it keeps the same 10 hours of battery life. Dressed entirely in black or white this time, the iPad 2 also sports HDMI output via a separate cable, as well as rear and front-facing cams, plus a bunch of new cool accessories.
