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.
Conclusion: The original iPad was the best tablet available a year ago. Now, the iPad 2 is the best tablet available, though it really hasn't diverted from the original formula. We’re still waiting for a proper Android-powered riva l to appear, a year on.
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
Excerpt: Seamless hardware and interface design, plus an unparalleled ecosystem of apps, keep the iPad 2 a step ahead of the emerging tablet pack. You'll want to be aware of some important factors, though, before picking a data carrier.
Pros: Fast performance, Super-thin design, Support for FaceTime, Superb media-sharing, browsing improvements in new iOS, Choice in data carriers
Cons: Poor camera quality, Still lacking Flash support, USB port, HDMI, SD-card adapters cost extra, Won't run on 4G network
Summary: The magic is back for a second act, baby, and it doesn't play for the Lakers (that's the Magic). The magic we're talking about plays for team , and while the competition tries to come up with a so-called "iPad killer," Apple may have beat them to the punch. How's that for irony?
Pros: Dual-core processor results in snappier performance, Twice as much RAM as the iPad 1, More comfortable to hold, Color options (black and white), Price
Cons: Built-in cameras sub-par, Still no USB port, microSD card slot, or Flash support, Needs to be even lighter for one-handed use
Excerpt: The iconic iPad is now thinner, faster, and just plain better. Seamless hardware and interface design, plus an unparalleled ecosystem of apps, keep the iPad 2 a step ahead of the emerging tablet pack.
Pros: Fast performance, Super-thin design, Support for FaceTime, Superb media-sharing, browsing improvements in new iOS
Cons: Poor camera quality, Still lacking Flash support, USB port, HDMI, SD-card adapters cost extra
Excerpt: Everybody wishes the iPad 2 had a higher-resolution display like the iPhone 4, but Apple didn’t even have to go there yet. All Apple did was put the iPad on a treadmill. The tablet shed some weight and gained some speed to become the iPad 2 , and it’s incredible what a difference that makes.
Pros: Skinnier profile shows mercy to your joints. Big performance boost makes apps, games and web browsing more zippy. Same 0 starting price and 10-hour battery life.
Cons: Mediocre cameras make still photos look slimy. Thinner body makes physical buttons on the side a little harder to press.
Excerpt: The Apple iPad 2 Wi-Fi is the same product as the 3G-enabled version except for the fact that your access to the internet is limited to areas with Wi-Fi. If you can live without the wider coverage offered by 3G and limit tasks that require internet connectivity to hotspots, this is the one to get.
Conclusion: Apple has done a fine job with the iPad 2, sure it doesn’t have removable storage, or 1080p video cameras in the front and back that do 24p in 16x9 or 22x9 format, or 4G or Wi-MAX, etc but it does a great job for what it is.
Summary: Apple's new tablet is the best of its kind, but is it really good enough?
Pros: Fantastic design, Better ergonomics, Good battery life, iOS 4.3 brings improvements, Facetime chats, Smudge-resistant screen, Still the slimmest (well almost, apart from the Toshiba AT200 ), sexiest, most desirable tablet on the market, the iPad 2 is a well-balanced combination of sleek, inspirin...
Cons: Where's the innovation?, No retina screen, Still no Flash, Negligable performance boost, While consumer demand and requirement has seen inbuilt cameras on tablets become a slightly overzealous necessity, those found attached to the iPad 2 do little to inspire the doubters who say tablet cameras a...
