iPad 2 hands-on demo: jQuery gallery Javascript test (VIDEO)

Boing Boing's Dean Putney covered Apple's unveiling of the new iPad today in San Francisco, and shot video at the event of hands-on tests he performed with the updated device. About the video in this post, Dean explains:

Testing Javascript on the iPad 2. This went pretty smoothly. I worked on a Javascript-intensive site for the original iPad, but when I tested it on the device it didn't work nearly at all. Animations were slow and jerky.

On the iPad 2, this issue seems to be resolved. The animations went pretty smoothly and it was pretty responsive. I couldn't think of something more complex to test at the time, but I think this shows improvement at least.
