Macworld review: The Apple iPad 2

The iPad 2 will go on sale on 5pm on Friday with prices beginning at £399 for a 16GB Wi-Fi only model - lower than first anticipated.

"While competitors are still struggling to catch up with our first iPad, we've changed the game again with iPad 2," said Steve Jobs, Apple's CEO.

"We're experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and customers around the world have told us they can't wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone's patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."

Pricing will be as follows: £399.00 inc VAT for the 16GB model, £479.00 inc VAT for the 32GB model, £559.00 inc VAT for the 64GB model.

The iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G will be available for a suggested retail price of £499.00 inc VAT for the 16GB model, £579.00 inc VAT for the 32GB model and £659.00 inc VAT for the 64GB model.

The prices are lower than those of the original iPad when it first launched - the 16GB Wi-Fi only model was £429.

The iPad 2 is smaller and lighter than its predecessor, and faster, too, as Macworld's tests show. It comes in a choice of two colours - black or white.
