Added features make iPad 2 worth a look

The iPad 2 is being release on March 11, and I’m not going to lie to you here: I really want one. Yeah, I know that many of you think of the iPad as the Jar Jar Binks of the tech world, and I can respect that. But there are some added features that I believe make the iPad 2 worth a look.

  • Front and back cameras.
  • The ability to run iMovie and Garageband.
  • Flash!

Of course, these are added goodies to what iPad 1 could already do. The main feature for me is that it doubles as an e-reader.

So what do you think? There are a few good reviews out there, including ones from TechCrunch and engadget. Are you planning on getting one? Do you already have an iPad? Do you think they are constructed of pure evil? Let me know!
