Coco Pans iPad 2

The iPad 2, unveiled last week by Steve Jobs, seems to have inspired a horde of criticism. Available for pre-order this Friday, it is slightly thinner, a bit faster, has two cameras and comes in both black and white. Priced at $499.00, Apple has already lowered the price of the first gen iPad $100 and offered to give recent customers a refund so they can buy the new one. It remains to be seen if the temptation works, but until then we give props to Conan for his take on the device.
