The long anticipated BBC iPlayer iPad and Android apps have finally arrived earlier today. Response has so far been subdued, with most complaining that the apps don’t bring anything new to the table. Nevertheless, we checked out the iPad version and were quite impressed.

iPad2 in production – BBC hints at HD display

The iPad2 is in production and should be appearing in shops “the next couple of months”, according to The Wall Street Journal. The new iPad is expected to have front, and possibly a rear, facing camera, a faster processor than its predecessor and rumours also suggest that the iPad2 will be thinner and lighter than version one. Although, the price shouldn't be any more than version one- with prices ranging from $500 to just over $800.
