The ground shook, Hell froze over and Chip bought an iPad 2. He gives his impressions, including the overall zippiness of the device, the crapitude of the onboard cameras, and the awesomeness that is Flipboard.
We also covered new versions of Infinity Blade and Dead Space for iOS, the arty Sword and Sworcery (due in a week), and gave our impressions of iOS 4.3.

At least according to one developer at GDC.
