iPad 2 event roundup

Steve Jobs once again put sneaker to stage and introduced us to the all new Apple iPad 2 today... and that's not all. From iBooks to iTunes, iOS 4.3 AirPlay to Home Sharing, HDMI out to Smart Cover ups, iMovie to GarageBand Apple tried hard to tell us why 2011 would again be the year of the iPad. Did they succeed? Frankly we're too exhausted to even think about it -- so you tell us!

iPad 2 Videos: 'A Blockbuster Post-PC Device" and Smart Cover

Apple has posted up a video touting the features of the iPad 2 - from it's insane thinness and weight, the front-and-rear-facing cameras, the SmartCover accessory, to PhotoBooth, to HDMI video mirroring, to the powerful A5 chip, to the 9x faster graphics, to the fact that the battery life is still 10 hours after all that.

Apple has also posted a video that explains better than words how the Smart Cover works. It's a magnetic cover for the screen that can be folded back and around itself to turn into a stand to hold the iPad either in a typing position or in a video-watching position.

Check them out after the break!

It's not like Verizon owners will miss personal hotspot, but if it does take longer we'll miss Apple's previously rock-solid record of delivering updates to all devices, all at once.

Again, maybe we're over reacting so more as this develops...
