Today saw the earlier than expected (and we can only speculate as to the real reason why, but the tanking share price due to Steve Jobs illness was probably the reason) launch of the ipad 2. I guess it managed to be a little better than the rumours were suggesting – I don’t think anyone hoped that it was going to be quite so thin, or have so much more power than the old model (or that it would be launched by Jobs himself), although they did correctly predict the cameras. But perhaps the neatest new feature is the magnetic smart cover. So, the big question is – will I get one? Well probably not… but I am sure that there will be a tablet around the house soon enough.
