Apple Ipad2 – The King of Tablets

What is Apple iPad 2?

After creating a product that spawned an entire generation of mediocre clones, a second coming was expected. However, for the moment, let’s bask in the warm afterglow of an enjoyable product that is elegantly designed and effortlessly usable. The iPad 2 is slightly slimmer and lighter than its predecessor is but sports the same display, resolution and the brushed aluminum unibody. Buttons and the keys on the body have seen minor adjustments, probably based on feedback. Under the hood, however, things could not be more similar. IPad 2 sports a dual core processor clocked at 1 GHz and a new graphic solution that Apple claims is at least 3 times more powerful.What you can do with iPad 2

Physically, because of the slimmer profile, the iPad 2 feels sturdier, and you will like the perforations in the body that serve as the loudspeaker vent. The iPad 2 has two cameras, a front-facing one for Face time and a rear one that boasts of HD video recording. Unfortunately, the resolution of rear camera is not more for still images and the quality is quite basic. Even the HDMI out accessory and its video quality was a bit disappointing. The keypad on the iPad 2 is very sensitive and usable. The only problem is that it is too big to be used like a PDA and a bit too compact to be used as a notebook keypad.

What specifications does iPad 2 hold?

Apart from the accelerometer, the iPad 2 introduces a 3-direction gyro sensor that allows sensing of lateral and vertical movement like panning the tablet around. There will be quite a few games that could utilize this extra bit of control. Regarding the music playback, iPad 2 is a little less than the original iPad. It has a 9.7 inches display, 1024×768 pixels, Soc: Apple A5 dual core 1 GHz and a storage of 64GB and weighing at 613 grams.

How much it differs from original iPad?

Criticism against iPad 2 is scarce, other than a couple of nits. It is a great product, albeit not as revolutionary as its predecessor is. Other than the hardware and some minor cosmetic changes, very little has changed.

Cost of iPad 2

IPad 2 starts at $499, a bit costlier than its predecessor but more expensive than any other tablet on the market. However, it is leagues ahead of the mob too and makes a great addition to your gadget collection.
