A couple of weeks ago I bit the bullet and decided to order a new iPad 2.
Advertised as shipping in 1-2 weeks on the Apple website, it arrived in 10 days, shipped from China.
I got the 64GB 3G model in whiten with the red leather smart cover.
I can see what Leo Laporte and others have been saying- the white unit does look smaller than the black. When you place it next to a black unit, the screen is identical in size.
The iPad 2 is certainly noticeably lighter and appreciably smaller than the older unit. It’s also faster.
Haven’t really played around with the other new features (cameras, gyro, etc) yet, but looking forward to playing.
So far really impressed with the new iPad 2.
