On March 2, 2011, Apple unveals the new iPad 2. In this device Apple is adding front and back-facing cameras and a gyroscope to the iPad 2. The new device will be dramatically faster with a A5 dual-core processor, Mr Jobs said, and will be 33 per cent thinner at 8.8mm - slimmer than the iPhone 4. It will also drop in weight from 1.5 pounds to 1.3 pounds. Despite the slimmed-down design, the battery life will be unchanged from the original model.
