Apple will be hosting an event on March 2nd to announce its new iPad 2. Apple launched the first iPad last April and intends to launch the second generation version almost exactly a year later. With the competition launching their first generation tablets, Apple is way ahead launching its second generation tablet. It would be difficult for Apple to match the sales figures from the first iPad. (How many individuals will actually replaced their one year old iPad?)
Nonetheless, the second generation iPad will lighter, have a faster processor, include a camera and more memory.
