Two year ago nobody had an iPad. The size difference between the first iPad and the iPad 2 may seem slight, but it is only because we are dealing with these products to start small. The iPad 2 is also 0.16 cm thick, 0.06 inch shorter, and 0.16 inches thinner than the original iPad.
Take an iPad 2 after handling an original iPad, and you'll immediately notice the difference. The original iPad came in six different variants of Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi/3G, each available with 16GB, 32GB, 64GB or storage. The good news is that costs only iPad 2, what the original iPad. Although it is thinner and lighter, the iPad 2, a look, much like the original iPad. The aluminum frame outside of the scope of the original iPad has been reduced to a thin edge, almost invisible in the second iPad The iPad 2 Microphone has stalled at the top of the unit, it was next to the headphone jack on the iPad original.
Apple is generally cautious about technical specifications for products like the iPhone and the iPad, but after all, the A5 is a dual-core version of the A4 1 GHz chip that powers the iPhone and the iPad 4 of origin. The iPad 2 also has 512 MB RAM, double the original iPad and a speed of 200 MHz bus, is also twice as high as the original.
Despite increases in processing power, Apple claims that the iPad 2, the same ten hours of battery life than the original model. The iPad all day battery life, perhaps its killer feature, remains intact.
The original iPad debuted just before Apple embraced video chat with FaceTime's software and added a forward facing camera on the iPhone. With iPad 2, the company has two cameras, to put all its mobile devices IOS. Size iPad, but it's a bit awkward as FaceTime device. It is difficult to have a long conversation while you are in the hands of the iPad. This means that the iPad 2 owners can choose between AT & T (usually faster) 3G network, and Verizon (usually reliable) 3G network. The iPad 2 to connect to AT & T network has been updated from the original models iPad. A final wrinkle in the purchase decision 3G: Only 3G iPad models come with GPS capabilities.
With the release of the Apple iPad 2 is also releasing several accessories related to the iPad 2 A Smart Cover magnetically adheres to the side of the iPad 2 and protects the front, locking and unlocking the iPad when you open and close the lid. There is also a new $ 29 iPad 2 Dock, which I was not able to test. As the original iPad Dock, you can configure your iPhone upright in portrait orientation and charge, sync, or even play audio or video-out. Now the bad news: The iPad 2 and the original iPad dock connector are different enough that accessories that match closely with the hardware is not compatible with the new model, so you probably will not be able to reuse a lot of your iPad accessories if you buy a second iPad Even Apple seems to have ended the iPad Keyboard Dock to have completed. The Apple Digital AV Adapter gives the iPad 2 the ability to produce HD video and mirror its own screen. One of the pleasant surprise of the iPad 2 features improved support for HDTV and HD video. On the entertainment side, you can with the new Apple Digital AV adapter, the iPad 2 spreads its wings. I played several HD video files on an HDTV via the iPad 2 different adapter and HDMI, and the video quality is excellent.
Exclusively for the iPad 2, the performance of educators, entertainers and everyone who has ever wished their iPad screen to a large crowd to be applauded: video mirroring. The iPad 2 makes it possible. In mirror mode, the interface is clear iPad. The stakes grow even wider if you set the iPad in portrait orientation, but the image of an iPad 2 in portrait mode is still beautiful, though small on an HDTV. The iPad 2 comes with a new version of operating system that powers the iPhone, iPad, iPod touch. With the new version of operating system, Apple is setting up two applications in the launch iPad 2. The other, GarageBand is an entirely new application for the iPad. Both applications are excellent, showing off the power of the iPad, IOS, and especially the iPad 2 It is interesting to note that for the original iPad launch, Apple introduced iWork $ 10 three applications: Keynote, Numbers and Pages. The ecosystem iPad application began and continued to rise sharply, making it one of the biggest advantages over the competition iPad tablet.
This time, Apple has launched its new iPad with a pair of $ 5 creative applications. In the case of iMovie, it is clearly related to the existence of cameras iPad. Apple also has a video workflow that starts with video shot on an iPhone 4 is activated, then lands on an iPad 2 for the treatment of transfer. GarageBand for iPad is a performance almost breathtaking. For more information, check out my first look at GarageBand for iPad. Now there's a new iPad. Although iPad 2 is an improvement over the original iPad in many ways, it is still an evolutionary product, not a revolutionary. If you have invested in accessories iPad as a dock or case, keep in mind that you probably will not be able to use it with the new iPad. Of course, if someone in your family, the iPad was a loud voice, could spend time with an iPad 2 and hand down to the old model for them or, if you're really nice to give his new iPad purchase as you soldier on the classical model.
If you are a presenter-toting iPad, it will be worth the investment.
