It's been less than a year since Apple introduced the iPad, and it's already reinvented the device. With 15 million tablets already sold, the tech titan released a 33% thinner and 0.2 pound lighter  iPad 2 that features a dual-core processor as well as front- and rear-facing cameras. The rear camera offers 720p video shooting.

Meet the new iPad 2.
