TiPb Answers: Why isn't iPad 2 dual-mode GSM+CMDA?

TiPb Answers: Why isn't iPad 2 dual-mode GSM+CMDA?

Instead of releasing separate iPad 2 models for AT&T/GSM and Verizon/CDMA, why doesn't Apple just use that new Qualcomm dual-mode chipset and support both GSM and CDMA on one device? That way users could not only swap microSIMs and move between different GSM/HSPA networks when they travel abroad, they could switch between AT&T and Verizon's CDMA/EVDO networks when at home. (For an explanation of what all those terms mean see TiPb's data and wireless networking glossary.)

Great artists ship

Great artists ship

When Steve Jobs announced iPad 2 on Wednesday he listed a lot of great features and numbers but perhaps none as impressive as the release date -- March 11, 2011 in the US. That's less than 2 weeks between announcement and release.

Last year it took longer. The Original iPad was announced in January and released in early and late April (Wi-Fi and 3G respectively). As a new product and category Apple needed to give developers time to create apps, and they responded with roughly 5000 ready at launch. This year Apple doesn't need that runway. There are already 65000 iPad-optimized apps in the iTunes App Store. This year Apple just ships.

That might not sound impressive until you consider Apple is poised to deliver iPad 2 -- their second tablet -- before almost all of their competitors have shipped even a single one.

Conan O'Brien plays life-sized Angry Birds and pokes fun at iPad 2 [Friday fun videos]

Conan O'Brien plays life-sized Angry Birds and pokes fun at iPad 2 [Friday fun videos]

Last night, Conan O'Brian had a fun, life-sized game of Angry Birds on stage and teased Apple for getting cocky about the iPad 2 with a mock promo video that is based off the following slogan:

iPad 2. You'll buy it no matter what we say.

To make the Angry Birds game more exciting, Conan had the pigs hiding under IKEA furniture because Finland's arch rival is Sweden (Angry Birds was developed in Finland, and IKEA is based out of Swedan).

For some good laughs, check out the videos after the break!
