Hi guys. So I got my hands on one of these things today. While mine hasn't arrived yet, the tests I was able to run on my friends' told me all I needed to know. The performance boost is beyond noticeable. Likely due to less RAM swapping, and the GPU upgrade, my app ran fast as he'll in comparison to the 1st gen iPad. I'm very pleased and can't wait to do more tests and update my app to handle the new features of the device such as the cameras and and dual core capability. It's gonna be a fun ride developing for this thing. It's like having a PS3 in your hands that you can code for.
