I have been searching for a case to protect the back of my iPad 2 and it must work with Apple’s Smart Cover. I chanced upon this thread, Smart Cover Compatible Cases List, in MacRumors which came in handy.
I did some research myself and the availability of those covers in Singapore and I came to a conclusion that the SwitchEasy CoverBuddy is the most value for money and it will definitely be available in Singapore.
Got the Bluelounge Nest for S$19.90 (Member’s Price: S$17.91) from Challenger. I think Challenger or the agent in Singapore only brought in the Black and White variant as I can’t seem to find the rest of the colors (Blue / Green / Orange / Pink) at Challenger but I saw it at EpiCentre@Ion Orchard.
Got my iPad 2 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G thanks to my friend/neighbour who went to queue up at 6am at Infinite at VivoCity and on the way got it for me! If you are reading this, Thanks Pei Jun!
Similar to iPad 1 launch, 1 person is entitled to buy 2 iPad 2 only. The stocks are extremely limited especially white! My friend was 5th in the queue and the white 32GB iPad 2 WiFi + 3G was already sold out. So I am guessing the previous 4 person got like 2x white each.
CUPERTINO, California – March 22, 2011 – Apple today announced that iPad 2, the second-generation of its third post-PC device, will go on sale in 25 additional countries this Friday, March 25. iPad 2 will be available at Apple retail stores and select Apple Authorized Resellers at 5 p.m. local time, and online through the Apple Store (www.apple.com) beginning at 1 a.m. Apple today also announced that all models of iPad 2 will be available in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and additional countries in April.
Apple announces iPad 2 at yesterday iPad event. I was too tired to catch the event live via live blogging, so I only checked it this morning. It seems that most if not all the rumors are true, Facetime, dual camera, Photobooth, Dual Core A5 and available in white.
The hardware difference between iPad 2 and iPad is the upgrade to dual-core Apple A5, back and front camera, three-axis gyro and of course the support for CDMA network. In terms of physical design, it is about 100 grams lighter but 50% thinner. iPad 2 is now available in white as well, looks like they solve the problem of painting in white. iPad 2 prices is the same as the iPad, Apple did not make it cheaper this time.
