At Wednesday’s iPad 2 event Apple CEO Steve Jobs took the wraps off of its second-generation tablet, officially dubbed “iPad 2,” with a completely new, thinner design, a faster dual-core A5 processor, and two video cameras, shipping on March 11 in the U.S. Check the full guide here.
The company moved nearly 15 million first-generation iPad units in 2010. Moreover, Apple absolutely dominates the emerging tablet space, holding 90% of the market. However, with iPad 2, things are a bit different. Apple no longer has the luxury of being the only game in town as competitors from across the consumer electronics space prepare to take on the incumbent.
Knowing the specs, price and release date for the iPad 2, Mashable decided to create infographic, with the help Kelli Shaver, to see how the new device stacks up against not just the original iPad, but also some of its competitors. Some of these competing devices — like the Motorola Xoom — are shipping. Others, like the HP TouchPad, won’t be available for a few more months. [via Mashable]
