Steve Jobs swoops in for i-Pad 2 launch

Picture from The Guardian

Newspaper publisher rejoice! The i-pad 2 is here. Sleeker, lighter and faster than it’s older brother, this upgrade model also now comes in white. Steve Jobs, was the surprise host as many expected him to stay away after taking indefinite medical leave last month.

As rumoured, i-Pad 2 comes armed with two cameras. The one in front allows for video recording, whilst the back facing camera is for taking photos. It will be available to buy in the UK on March 25 and two weeks earlier in America. It will be interesting to see how strong sales are for this new model. The more people that buy it is good news not just for Apple, but also for newspapers and magazines. The idea being that many will use tablets to access their news.  And with other tablets challenging the mighty i-pad, it may very well prove to be a rebirth for print jounralism.
