We’ve just posted an iPad 2 hands-on interface video (new: HD version) on Vimeo so that you can check out the new camera features, settings, and other neat features of the second-generation iPad, as well as a hands-on iPad Smart Cover installation video showing how the magnetic clasp system and auto-lock/unlock features work.

1) is the speaker quality improved????

There is a sence of irony when you can’t watch a video about a new iDevice on a website about iDevices when viewing said website on an iDevice.

Oh my God, I cannot agree more with Andy in London.  It is exactly what I was going to say.  It is absolutely ridiculous.

Ridiculous is iMovie + YouTube failing to process the same file that Vimeo handled in a heartbeat. Sorry if it’s that much of a problem for you.

To be honest the lack of Flash support is one of only two or three reasons as to why I haven’t gone out and bought an iPad already.

Can you fold the Smart Cover flat against the back of the iPad?  All the photos show it being used as a stand, and I think it’ll become annoying having to remove the cover if I want to just hold the iPad and read a book/surf the internet/do something else.

Hmmmmmmm….. Ditto to ALL comments b4 mine.

• Magnetic cover: pointless if it doesn’t fit flat on back
• FLASH!!!: I mean really, Apple! Get w/it! Had all 4 iPhones, no iPad,
        but EXCEPT 4 Apple mobile products, FLASH is frikkin’ universal!    Just get over urselves and u’d sell another 100 million faster than the first!!!
• Face Time: Can we VERY loyal customers STILL only use it if both users
R on WiFi?!?! Basically, THAT sucks as bad as not having FLASH!

Just Sayin’.....NONE of the millions of users comments and suggestions EVER get addressed anyway!!!!! Sort of like our clean-cut Louisiana politics! :(
