Apple’s Jobs Reappears to Unveil IPad 2 as Rivals Circle

Apple Inc. Chief Executive Officer Steve Jobs emerged from medical leave to introduce a new version of the iPad, aiming to stay ahead of a stampede of tablet-computer rivals.

The iPad 2 features a faster chip and front and rear cameras, which allow for videoconferencing. It’s also 33 percent thinner than its predecessor, released in April. The product will ship in the U.S. on March 11 and internationally on March 25, at the same $499 starting price as the previous model.
