So...did anyone notice the iPad 2 is actually smaller/narrower/less bezel?

    I was watching this video on YouTube (around the 2:15 mark) where they have an iPad 2 and iPad 1 next to each other and though..."Hmm...the iPad 2 looks noticeably narrower all around."

    Then it sort of clicked...the iPad 2 is all glass + bezel where the iPad 1 is glass + bezel + silver surround. It's a small difference but visually it makes a big impact. I then checked the specs and sure enough...

    iPad 2
    Width: 7.31"
    Height: 9.50"

    iPad 1
    Width: 7.47"
    Height: 9.56"

    Yes, I noticed when I looked at the spec page. I didn't think a 0.6% reduction in height and 2% reduction in width was significant.
