Conclusion: Apple has done a great job of taking what was already a compelling product and making it even more enticing in its second generation version. If you skipped the original iPad, the iPad 2 is a great place to get in on the tablet action.
Pros: Better performance and graphics, thinner, more comfortable to hold, video mirroring.
Cons: Poor camera quality, tapered edges make ports and buttons difficult to use.
Summary: Verdict: If you already own the original iPad there’s little reason to splurge on the latest. While the cameras bring new functionality, the results as far as the rear camera is concerned, are basic.
Pros: More horsepower under the hood, slightly lighter, looks and feels great, battery life is still brilliant.
Summary: Successor to the Throne. About one year ago, Apple laid the foundation for the iPad, a groundbreaking new tablet series. Apples iPad 2 comes with new hardware: dual-core CPUs and front and rear cameras.
Pros: High quality case, Good performance, Quiet and low heat emissions, Good battery life, Extensive package (Appstore, Bookstore, iTunes...), the improvement of the iPad.
Cons: Still no cursor keys on the virtual keyboard, Limited connectivity, Camera module has bad quality, The Apple System (both soft- and hardware) are completely closed off
Conclusion: In some ways, this new edition of the iPad is a subtle refinement, in other ways a drastic expansion of its functionality and its very intent, allowing us to create and communicate with technology which simply was not available in the initial effort.
Pros: Sleeker than ever, Enhanced feature set including two (!) new cameras, Blazing-fast processor
Cons: Still no Flash video support, Charging still slow, still can't be performed via connection to computer
Excerpt: The Good Much faster in some areas. Thinner and lighter. Huge, intuitive app library. Smart Covers are slick. iMovie and GarageBand are killer apps. Dual cameras add functionality. Still excellent battery life. Tough-to-beat price. The Bad Not night-and-day better for some iPad owners.
Pros: Much faster in some areas., Thinner and lighter., Huge, intuitive app library., Smart Covers are slick., iMovie and GarageBand are killer apps., Dual cameras add functionality., Still excellent battery life., Tough-to-beat price.
Cons: Not night-and-day better for some iPad owners., Cameras are sub-par by Apple standards., Android sometimes more powerful and open., Smart Cover doesn't guard the back., Still the same 1024x768 display.
Conclusion: As much as Apple touts its wonderfully new slimmer design, which we openly agree as being eye catching, one of the most alluring things about the iPad 2 is its spot on pricing. At $500 for the entry-level model, you’re presented with a fantastic looking tablet that’s filled with plenty of goodies to...
Pros: Impressive thin profile, Fast performance with its A5 processor, Enabled for video chat, Solid price point
Cons: Shoots terrible photos, Same old iOS experience
Conclusion: With properly calibrated expectations--think minor refresh, rather than next generation--the iPad 2 continues Apple’s reign as the king of tablets. If you haven’t bought one yet, the iPad 2 is a stellar device that still feels like a little slice of science fiction come true.
Pros: New A5 chip and RAM significantly improve overall performance, and gaming in particular. Dual cameras work fine for video calls. Thinner, lighter unibody looks slick and makes the iPad more comfortable to use. Video mirroring adds “teaching and presentation tool” to the iPad’s list of many useful...
Cons: No transformative new features. Display is unchanged, so it still isn’t usable in bright sunlight and attracts lots of smudgy fingerprints. Cameras yield poor, low-res photos. Using cameras is often difficult and requires awkward grip. No support for 4G cellular data. Still no expansion ports.
Summary: The camera quality isn't great, and there's no 4G data or mobile hotspot feature. At the same time, Android 3.0 tablets such as the Motorola Xoom do a better job with multitasking and notifications.
Summary: Introduction The Apple iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G is available in various 3G flavors. As cocky as it might be, after the demise of Steve Jobs, there are lot of changes that we have seen in the products.
Pros: Great Screen , HD video looks is brilliant , App experience is fantastic , Great User Interface
Cons: Expensive , Not convinced about the keyboard , Expensive
