Apple has a sound history of making great products. The iPad 2 is expected to continue that tradition.

The iPad 2 is an updated iPad with a faster processor speed and memory. However, other than slightly improved performance, most of the iPad 2′s changes are cosmetic.

It still doesn’t play flash or offer more multi-tasking.

I love my iPad, I can see that the BlackBerry is trying to make a good product but I can’t imagine it will be able to compete with the iPad. The iPad has the market.
