Enterprise Mobility: Apple iPad 2 Wish List: 10 Essential Features
Fewer products have received more attention so early on in 2011 as Apple's second-generation iPad, also known as the iPad 2. The first iPad, launched in April 2010, sold some 15 million units and set the bar for the design of all other tablet computers to come. While Motorola is preparing to launch what appears to be the stiffest iPad challenge yet in its Android 3.0-based Xoom tablet, the iPad 2 is expected to raise the stakes higher by including front- and rear-facing cameras and some other new features. The cameras, which sources told eWEEK were purposely left out of the original device to give consumers a reason to buy the second-generation machine, will enable video chats. There are more features we will want to see in the iPad 2 when it arrives. And it could be sooner than you think. The latest rumor, per Apple Insider, is that the device will be unveiled later this month and launched in March. Meanwhile, the wishing and hoping continues for these potential perks.
