I don't think there has been a lot of stuff taking advantage of the faster processor, or improved graphics yet, but it does seem a little snappier! I think that time will show it to be a lot faster than the original iPad when apps are made/remade to take full advantage of the upgrades!
Yes I do have my iPad already! As I think I said on Facebook, my mom was very nice to go get mine for me on release night!! :-) :-) She first went to the Walmart she works at, but they only got 7 Wi-Fi only models. Next she tried a couple AT&T stores, but they didn't get any iPad 2's. Finally she went to our only Best Buy, and stood in line for over 2 hours. I wanted a 64 GB Black AT&T Wi-FI + 3G, but ended up getting a 64 GB White Verizon Wi-FI + 3G! I'm happy with the Verizon service, all though I did have to call Verizon, and do a hard reset (hold down the home & sleep buttons till it shuts off, then comes back on w/ the Apple Logo) to get it working right. I take it almost every wear with me. It goes to work, and rests in my locker till breaks/lunch. I take it to my grandparents house, to Hardee's for late night thick burger runs with my mom, and has already been to one photo shoot with me! I got the camera connection kit to upload photos, and it works great!!
I'm including a link here to my RetroMacCast blog post I did giving my first review about the iPad 2. I took great pride in the fact that I wrote it entirely on my iPad 2!! Part of it was written while at my Grandparents house in the conurty on Verizon 3G, and part at my home on Wi_Fi. I hope everyone likes it!
Sorry - A little late with this... got my iPad (Air) 2 a month ago!
