We're back from flu enforced hiatus with an all new episode of TiPb TV featuring Apple's all new iPad 2! There's so much to cover we're going to be breaking it up over several shows and fair warning -- we're going to be having fun with it. (If you want a more traditional look, go read our iPad 2 review.)

This time around Rene and I take a look at iPad 2's Apple A5 chipset and iOS 4.3's JavaScript Nitro engine to see just how fast games like Infinity Blade can launch and websites like TiPb.com can render. Then we take FaceTime and the iPad 2's "cameras" on the road for a full on tourist test at the local mall. And oh man your eyes may never recover!

(In case you're curious, we used iPhone 4's Wi-Fi personal hotspot to connect iPad 2 to FaceTime over 3G which makes no sense but worked well.)

Watch along with us above and then let us know what you think -- is the web and app speed worth the upgrade? Are the cameras good enough to use in a pinch?
