Though it appears that the screen resolution of our favourite iOS device won’t change, the horsepower behind the screen sure will.
According to the images presented by Steve Jobs in today’s iPad2 announcement, the unit will feature:
- Dual-core processors
- Up to 2x faster CPU
- Up to 9x faster graphics
- New A5 chip
- Same low power as A4 chip
- First dual core tablet to ship in volume
As well, it’ll be thinner, lighter, and available in white. Oh, and it has cameras. 2 of them. No excuse for missing that shot if you have your iPad2 with you then.
What this means for many iPad Darkroom apps and users is that whatever apps you use in your digital darkroom, expect them to get enhancements soon to take advantage of the new horsepower in the new hardware. Not sure how this will impact upgraded apps on iPad1 hardware. Time will tell.
