Apple iPad 2 Arrives in Manila, Unboxing Photos and First Impression

Finally, the Apple iPad 2 I ordered from the U.S. Apple Online Store the first day it became available arrived. Thanks to a high school friend who volunteered to bring my iPad 2 from the U.S. to Manila free of charge. That saved me around Php 3000 in shipping charges if I went through the Johnny Air Cargo process. (Thanks Jun Bautista!).

Anyway, what was my first impressions of the iPad 2? Two things – the iPad 2 is thinner and faster than the previous iPad. From its form factor, overall design, and weight – Apple definitely did its homework and tried to make as much changes as it can to the original iPad. So, the iPad 2 looks better, weighs better, and performs better than the original iPad.

Will post a full review at iPad News Hub once I get to play around with this baby in a couple of days. In the meantime, have a feast on the unboxing photo gallery below.
