I may be stating the obvious here but soooo much went unaddressed at yesterday’s iPad 2 event. Too much is percolating to be left that way for long.
First and foremost is iOS 5. Nary a mention. History points to a preview coming some time in the next 4 – 5 weeks. Apple’s been busy of late so I wouldn’t be surprised if it came slightly later this year. Call it Tuesday April 12.
Second is MobileMe. Nothing. Zilch. And in a way that makes me even more optimistic that the coming overhaul is both massive and tightly integrated into iOS (and OSX…) File system (or app) FTW? Here’s hoping. I’m not going to overhaul my own personal workflow until that’s addressed, or not, by Apple.
Anyway, as I’ve stated in prior posts, I’m definitely trading up to the iPad 2. The added horsepower alone makes it a no brainer for me. The thinner, lighter form factor is just gravy as are the cameras.
Oh, and wasn’t it great to see SJ there? I knew he loved the iPad at least as much as he does President Obama
