Conclusion: Nevertheless the iPad 2's upgraded dual-core A5 processor and the PowerVR GPU are a true force to be reckoned with. In addition to the new hardware under the hood, Apple was able to slim the iPad 2 by a third, a very noticeable improvement when holding the device and carrying it around. The redesigned aluminum back sits more flush against a flat surface than last year’s model and the curved sides feel more natural in your hand.
Excerpt: Apple's new iPad 2 is currently so popular that it's difficult to buy. Along with its impressive hardware however, there are a few weak spots and a couple rough edges in its current software release.
Pros: Strong, clean, attractive design now thinner and lighter, Natural touch interface is simple and elegant to use, More than 65,000 iPad apps and games now available, Makes a great mobile tool that works with your computer, Fast 802.11n wireless networking, 3G data options, exceptional battery life, Reasonably priced hardware and 3G service with no contracts, Supports FaceTime video conferencing
Conclusion: But with an LCD bleed like this it should be alot cheaper, like $200 cheaper unless Apple plans to fix it. I’m really looking forward to what Motorola and RIM have to show us. Filmed with the Flip Ultra HD , edited on iMovie.
Conclusion: The new Apple iPad 2 is a positive step forward in the evolution of tablet computers. The addition of cameras, RAM, and a dual core processor certainly adds to the long term viability of your investment. Applications, video streaming and games will increase in size and scope as developers can pack more pixels, NPCS and code to be able to provide better quality games with the added hardware.
Summary: At an MRP ranging from Rs. 29,500 for the 16 GB model, to 46,900 for the 64 GB model with 3G support, the iPad 2 is only slightly costlier than its predecessor, but more expensive than any other tablet on the market. However, its leagues ahead of the mob too, and makes a great, (if expensive), addition to your gadget collection.
Excerpt: Last Friday, I bought an iPad 2 and hopped a flight to Guatemala . I'm going to go ahead and declare my well-travelled little tablet the first iPad 2 in the developing world. It's probably also the first iPad to make it to the top of an active volcano- but more on that later. There's a lot of reviewing to do first.
Conclusion: Despite its failings, we love the Apple iPad 2. The sheer quality and usability of Apples tablet makes it the choice of the field, with other products still lagging when it comes to apps, battery life or even build quality.
Pros: Without a doubt, the most impressive thing about the Apple iPad 2 is its build quality. Constructed out of a solid piece of aluminium, with a bright and vivid glass display, it's every bit the premium gadget. We also love the operating system on the Apple iPad 2. Unlike rival tablets, there are loads of apps that take full advantage of the iPad's form factor, helping to turn the Apple into a genuinely useful device. The iPad 2 is also a perfect all-rounder when it com...
Cons: The biggest problem with the Apple iPad 2 is its lack of ports. It's a shame that there's no USB port – making it impossible to easily hook up other devices without buying peripherals, and the need to use iTunes to copy your music across is also frustrating.
