So Apple’s announced their new iPad today during their press conference and it’s looking like apple is ready to blow away the ‘copycats’ as they call them.

The iPad2 is going to be the first dual core tablet to ship in volume. The tablet will be running on Apple’s new A5 processor and according to Apple be twice as powerful and consume the same power as the current iPad's CPU. Apple is saying that the A5 will be 9X faster at graphics processing than the current A4, have the same 10 hour battery life and as an added bonus be lighter.

It will also have a rear and front facing camera, it will also have the same built in gyroscopic functions that are in the new iPhone and iPod touches. It will ship in both black and white from lunch, and be available on Verizon and AT&T at the same price as the original.

Another big inclusion is HDMI out with the ability to mirror images in 1080p. It will work with all apps according to Apple, they will be selling a $39 attachment that charges your iPad2 as well as outputting video.
