Giant iPod touch
iPad 2 was released earlier today and it looks almost exactly like the leaked photos. I was one of the few people that thought the leaked iPad 2 photos were real, since it follows closely Apple's recent design paradigm: no more round backs. The iPad 2 looks almost exactly like the fourth generation iPod touch, which I really like.
But what I like most about the iPad 2 is that it's much lighter! I've had the iPad 3G for a few months and I no longer really notice the weight, but whenever I pick up iPads without 3G I notice how much lighter they are. The iPad 2 with or without 3G are both lighter than the original iPad. But I probably won't upgrade unless I can get one for free. Besides, my iPad is jailbroken.
