Apple CEO Steve Jobs briefly emerged from his medical leave and walked on stage to standing ovation Wednesday to unveil the second-generation of the popular iPad, which will go on sale March 11 in the U.S.
Jobs looked frail and wore his signature black mock turtleneck, blue jeans and wire-rimmed glasses.
"We've been working on this product for a while, and I just didn't want to miss today," Jobs said at the San Francisco event. "Thank you for having me."
The next-generation tablet computer has a faster processor than the original iPad's. As expected, it comes with two cameras for taking photos and video chatting. The battery life will be the same as the original - about 10 hours of "on" time and a month on standby.
The iPad 2 is also thinner - 8.8 millimeters instead of the current 13.4 millimeters.
