Apple reveals iPad 2, coming March 11

Surprising literally no one on the entire planet (and that includes remote African tribes that lack running water, to say nothing of decent Wi-Fi access) Apple just announced the iPad 2.

The system features rear and front-facing cameras, a dual core processor -- the A5 chip -- and is 33 percent thinner than its predecessor; thinner even than the iPhone 4. There will be models for both AT&T and Verizon, and you can expect 10 hours of battery life from a single charge.

The pricing, however has not changed. The iPad 2 will run from $629 to $829 for units with 3G and $499 to $699 for those without, just like "iPad Prime."

The good news? It'll be here sooner than you think: March 11 in the US and in 26 other countries by March 25.
