I'm eyeing to have this.....En Habi??

Apple released the first iPad in April 2010, and sold 3 million of the devices in 80 days. During 2010, Apple sold 14.8 million iPads worldwide, representing 75 percent of tablet PC sales at the end of 2010. By the release of the iPad 2 in March 2011, more than 15 million iPads had been sold — more than all other tablet PCs combined. In 2011, it is expected to take 83 percent of the tablet computing market share in the United States.

Apple Inc. CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the iPad 2, the second generation of the device, at a March 2, 2011, press conference, despite being on medical leave at the time. About 33% thinner than its predecessor, the iPad 2 has a better processor, a dual core Apple A5 that Apple says is twice as fast as its predecessor for CPU operations and up to nine times as fast for GPU operations. It includes front and back cameras that support FaceTime, as well as a three-axis gyroscope. It retains the original's 10-hour battery life and has a similar pricing scheme. While prices were kept the same in the United States, the iPad 2 sold for less in other countries, such as the United Kingdom.

The iPad 2 has been available for purchase, depending on stock availability, since March 11, 2011, at Apple retail stores in the United States, as well as to United States customers shopping online at Apple's retail website. The iPad 2 was released internationally in 25 other countries on March 25, 2011, including Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Japan, Mexico and the United Kingdom, but not Japan as originally scheduled due to the earthquake and tsunami. iPad owners who bought a first-generation iPad directly from Apple within two weeks before the announcement are eligible for a $100 reimbursement from Apple.

Apple reduced the size of the iPad 2 by 33% compared to its predecessor by eliminating the stamped sheet metal frame from the display, integrating new thinner glass technology for the touch screen overlay, and slightly reducing the space between the display and battery. The iPad 2's screen is thinner, lighter, and yet stronger than the original iPad's.

The original iPad had no camera. The iPad 2 has front VGA camera and a rear-facing 720p camera, both capable of still images and 30fps video. The rear facing camera has a 5x digital zoom for still images only. Both shoot photo and video in a 4:3 fullscreen aspect ratio, unlike the iPhone 4, which shoots in a 16:9 widescreen aspect ratio. It also lacks the iPhone's tap to focus feature. The cameras allow FaceTime video messaging with iPhone 4, iPod Touch 4, and Snow Leopard Macs.

The iPad 2 battery is 2.5 mm thick, 59% smaller than the original and has three cells instead of two, allowing the injection-molded plastic support frame to be omitted.
