Apple iPad 2 Unboxing Photos

On February 23, 2011 Steve Jobs unveiled the second generation of the iPad, the iPad 2. About two weeks later on Friday March 11, 2011 it went on sale and I was once again one of the first people to buy one.

Since I already experienced the iPad 1 launch event in person, this time I ordered it online at apple.com. In order to ensure I got one, I set my alarm for 4 a.m. on March 11, 2011 and proceeded to order an iPad 2 Wi-Fi with 32 GB of memory and a Gray iPad Smart Cover. In contrast to my iPad 1 I opted for the 32 GB version this time around. I had learned very quickly that 16 GB of memory was simply not enough to fully enjoy the iPad.

Five long days after ordering the iPad 2 it finally arrived on Wednesday March 16, 2011. Given that it came all the way from China that’s super fast. Without further ado, let’s get to the unboxing of the iPad 2:

An unopened box only means one thing: Time for some iPad 2 unboxing.

Here’s everything that came in the iPad 2 box: The iPad 2, a USB charger, a wall charger, and the usual envelope with instructions and stickers.

Here’s a look at the back of the iPad 2. Much rounder than the back of the iPad 1.
