Ailing Apple CEO given standing ovation during roll-out of new tablet.

The rollout of the updated Apple iPad may have been upstaged by who showed up to present it.

Apple CEO Steve Jobs walked out on stage to a standing ovation.

He has been on an indefinite medical leave, but said he didn't want to miss today's event.

Apple's iPad 2 is the successor to the wildly popular iPad tablet computer that has sold 15 million copies in nine months.

The iPad 2 comes in black and white, is thinner, lighter and faster than the original and has two cameras for video conferencing.

Jobs said the iPad has inspired a lot of copycats, but Apple is still ahead of the competition.
