On the iPad 2

Well, unfortunately not on it as in using it, that’ll have to wait until March 11th (if possible, otherwise March 25th). I do have some thought about the iPad 2 though, based on the Stevenote (welcome back Steve) two days ago.

  • It’s thinner, lighter, and faster. Love it.
  • It’s beautiful.
  • Android tablet makers are even further behind now.

Seriously, Motorola & co must be frustrated right now, they just can’t keep up with Apple. They have yet to produce a tablet matching the original iPad, and now Apple ups the ante again. It’s never fun to be a follower all the time, and it is definitely not good for business.

And while the competition is playing catch-up, Apple is busy preparing iPad 3.

Go figure.
