New Zealand among first countries to get iPad 2

New Zealand among first countries to get iPad 2

Apple ended months of speculation today by announcing the release of the iPad 2, and New Zealand will be among the first countries in the world where it will go on sale.

The iPad 2 is 33 per cent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter than the original iPad. It features Apple’s new dual-core A5 processor for faster performance, and it contains two cameras – a front-facing VGA camera that enables video calling and a rear-facing camera that captures HD video

The device will go on sale in New Zealand on 25 March, with pricing yet to be announced. Computerworld understands Ingram Micro, one of two official Apple distributors here, expects to carry the product from the official launch date.

“With more than 15 million iPads sold, iPad has defined an entirely new category of mobile devices,” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO in the media release. “While others have been scrambling to copy the first generation iPad, we’re launching iPad 2, which moves the bar far ahead of the competition and will likely cause them to go back to the drawing boards yet again.”
