Pictures: Apple iPad 2 unboxing

What joys lie inside Apple's famous packaging

We open up our Apple iPad 2 and take a look inside.

As ever, PC Advisor's sister title Macworld UK was amongst the first to get a new Apple iPad 2 by importing one directly from the US to the UK. And lucky we were too as it looks like there is now a three to four week waiting list.

Our iPad has just landed in the office, a few days after being flown in direct from San Francisco (before we go any further: thanks to Jim Galbraith from Macworld.com for picking one up for us from the Apple Store, and Jason Snell for helping out with organising it.)

Come with us as we unbox the iPad 2.

1. The Box. Smaller and thinner than the original Apple iPad box, but still with the minimalist markings that come to signify an Apple product. Doesn't even say iPad on the front, just has an image of the device taken from the side (to show how thin it is).

2.The rear. Nothing but a few specs and the barcode.

3.Off with the lid. Inside is the iPad 2 inside a plastic wrapping.

4. Below the iPad. Underneath the iPad 2 sits the charger and cable, plus a few leaflets.
