The iPad 2 is now available for purchase on Apple’s US online store. With new features like a faster A5 processor, front and rear-facing cameras, and a thinner enclosure, the device improves upon the iPad’s already iconic design.
Eighteen different versions of the iPad 2 are available in Apple’s store, starting at US$499. They include Wi-Fi only versions with 16, 32, or 64 GB of storage; Wi-Fi + 3G models that will work on AT&T’s network; and Wi-Fi + 3G models that work with Verizon. All models come in your choice of black or white.
Apple is offering free shipping on all models, and several new accessories are available for the iPad 2, including Apple’s innovative Smart Covers. The iPad 2 will not be available for sale in physical stores until later today, and stocks are likely to be limited… so if you’d rather not stand in line (perhaps futilely), your best bet is to order an iPad 2 online.
