We just returned from our friendly local Apple store and waded through the chaos to grab a pair of iPad 2 models to share with you — one white and one black. Our initial impressions? Apple has really evolved the tablet category it pioneered, and in almost every way possible. The iPad 2 is thinner, lighter and faster than the first-generation model it replaces. The end result is that the iPad 2 feels like something you want to use more and more, even more so than the first unit. Apps launch instantly, Web browsing is much faster and Photo Booth is ridiculously cool, if not completely useless except for those rare occasions. We obviously haven’t had enough time to go in-depth with things like the cameras or battery yet, but that’s all coming soon. For now, check out some photos of both models after the break in our gallery.
