Apple just announced it's new iPad - seriously - it's called the New iPad. Increased resolution, better camera, HD video recording, retina display, 4G.... I could go on.
Price point the same as the previous version with 16GB wifi starting at $499. I could see some pretty nice benefits in the classroom with an increase in the photo abilities - that's always been my biggest complaint about my iPad2. Word is the cost of the iPad2 will drop by $100. You can get more info here: Mashable Live Event Blog.
Also announced: iPhoto for the iPad Released today for $4.99
