Asking “will it blend?” is a tech cliché by now, but we still can’t help but watch agog as Blendtec do their usual with the new iPad 2. The new Apple tablet may be so rare that online orders aren’t shipping for 4-5 weeks and queues outside stores trail round the block, but that hasn’t stopped Blendtec’s Tom Dickson from snapping a brand new white iPad 2 in half and then jamming it in his industrial-strength blender.

Unsurprisingly, once suitably bent in half to fit the blender’s jug, the poor iPad 2 is no match for the vicious spinning blades. It quickly goes from 9.7-inch super-tablet to $499+ of electronics dust, much to the chagrin of the unconvincing Steve Jobs lookalike Blendtec has employed for its skit.
Frankly, we can think of better things to do with an iPad 2, but then we don’t have blenders to sell. If you’d like to know more about the tablet’s more regular abilities, check out the full SlashGear review.
