The new iPad 2 has a better processor, longer battery life

Apple has intrigued people with its naming scheme for the new third generation iPad, but that's nothing compared to the new iPad 2. It's being called the iPad 2,4 , interestingly enough.
Moreover, the processor is an upgraded one as well. The older iPad 2 had a 45 nm processor, and gave a user 10 hours of battery life on WiFi. The iPad 2,4 goes a step beyond that already impressive figure, thanks to its efficient 32 nm processor (a la the new Apple TV). Anandtech got anywhere between 1.6 to even a whopping three extra hours out of the battery of the iPad 2,4 compared to the iPad 2.
The iPad 2,4 isn't particularly easy to find in the market though. The folks at Anandtech got it from BestBuy, but apparently most Apple Stores still have stock with the old 45 nm processors.
