iPad 2 Available by the end of March

Earlier today, we told you that AllThingsD heard from reliable sources that the iPad 2 will be announced on March 2nd.

According to a new report from 9to5mac, the second generation iPad is actually expected to be available for purchase within weeks after the announcement, and should therefore hit store shelves by the end of next month.

The iPad 2 is expected to come with several improvements over the first generation iPad, such as a thinner design, a rear camera for taking pictures, a front camera to allow the iPad 2 to be compatible with FaceTime, as well as a larger, more powerful speaker.

While the device is expected to sport more memory, the iPad 2’s CPU should be very similar to the one found in the first generation iPad, albeit clocked at a higher speed.

The device should also come with a better quality screen, but its resolution will be the same as the one offered by  the first generation iPad display, 1024×768.

    Last year they announced the iPad a lot earlier. I wonder what was taking them so long lol. Apple better come up with something that we will consider “magic” or something that will “change everything” again when compared to these other tablets on the market.
