Apple iPad 2

ITP.net
9 June 2011
  • 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. If you own another first generation tablet however and you’re unsatisfied with it, Apple’s latest is worth a look.
  • Pros: More horsepower under the hood, slightly lighter, looks and feels great, battery life is still brilliant.
  • Cons: Rear-facing camera offers basic results.

Apple iPad 2 Review

3 May 2011
  • 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. And so with a healthy dash of innovations big and small, without any compromise, the iPad 2 is a sequel worth waiting in line for.
  • 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. 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.
  • 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.

The iPad 2 Review

Maclife
14 March 2011
  • 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. But if you already own an iPad 1, there’s no real need to upgrade unless you’re a hardcore gamer who wants premium performance.
  • 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 functions. Magnet-based Smart Cover is an ingenious, valuable accessory. Same pricing as first iPad.
  • 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.

Apple iPad 2 (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
9 March 2011
  • Summary: Apple didn't need to do a lot to stay in the tablet lead, but it has certainly done enough to create more distance between itself and the rest of the field. The thinner, lighter iPad 2 raises the bar for design. And while the new dual-core processor didn't blow us away, it provides a noticeable performance boost while making resource-hungry apps such as iMovie feel buttery smooth.

  • 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. Though we cant match for the original Apple introduce by the Steve, still we are slightly convinced with the latest Apple iPad 2 Wi-Fi + 3G. This device is thinner than the original iPad that comes with a faster processor, Face Time video chat and dual cameras.
  • Pros: Great Screen , HD video looks is brilliant , App experience is fantastic , Great User Interface
  • Cons: Expensive , Not convinced about the keyboard , Expensive

  • Summary: The iPad 2 is faster, thinner and lighter than its predecessor, but it inherits most of the original models flaws. If you liked the original iPad, you'll love the iPad 2, but for current iPad owners the second generation iPad isn't a necessary upgrade, and it has poor quality cameras.
  • Pros: Excellent design, Slick user experience, Improved performance
  • Cons: Poor quality cameras, No memory card slot, No Flash support
