I admit it, I held off but I am now on the bandwagon!

I really didn’t think I would get excited about the new iPad 2. Frankly I was getting a little tired of the non-stop noise postulating from every conceivable forum about what it will do or won’t, what will be new or stay the same, why Apple should wait and why they shouldn’t, yada, yada, yada Sheen, Qaddafi, Gaddafi, Kadaffi whatever, and iPad2 all day, all the time.

But, nonetheless, as I sat here writing an Article for iBusiness’s next issue I was watching the blog feed by Joshua Topolsky live from the event at The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts in CA. Slowly but surely my full attention went to the auto refresh of my second monitor as young Joshua did an outstanding job of giving the play-by-play of the presentation by Steve Jobs and friends. I found myself not waiting for the auto refresh but click manually on the refresh button to get the news quicker, faster, I was totally sucked in!

I will not go on about every aspect of what this, thinner, faster, sleeker, double camera, super fantastic device will do. You can read and see for yourself here:

Suffice it to say that my iPad v. 1 is being handed off to a colleague as soon as I get my hands on the v.2. Really, since we are iPad app developers we have to have all of the model types, right?
