Apple iPad 2 Price, Features, Specification – iPad2, Improved Tablet, but Not Revolutionary

Posted on: June 1, 2011

The iPad 2 is here and without saying much more, I could just tell you that it is fabulous. With a lower weight, faster processing speeds, useful and addictive apps, and a simple beauty that nothing else can compare to, you can expect the iPad2 to dominate not only the tablet market, but also the PC, netbook, and notebook markets. It’s the best thing out there, but it hasn’t brought anything revolutionary to the market, just made a few improvements and lowered the price to a very reasonable £399 at the launch.

Unlike the first iPad, this is not a revolution in terms of changing the way people use their electronic computing devices. Instead, the iPad2 is more of a fine tuning. It’s like a beautiful Harley Davidson that comes out of the custom shop and has become legendary. The main adjustments have been made in terms of size, functionality, and the innovation of adding cameras into the new version. At nearly a third the thickness of the original iPad and having changed the hard edges to a softer, more comfortable tapered design, the iPad2 doesn’t feel like it can possibly have so much power locked inside it’s attractive shell which, by the way, weighs in at 1.33 pounds.

As a multicore computer, the iPad really shines. With the latest of stable operating systems, the iOS 4.3 the iPad2 has increased speed over it’s predecessor. You can noticeably tell that apps launch faster, run more efficiently, and even for gaming, the iPad2 feels like the best of the tablets. One definite negative is the decision by Apple to not support Flash with the iPad’s built in Safari browser. So much of the web runs on flash that for us, this is a definite negative mark. Android tablets do play flash and as such, in terms of browsing, they get higher marks than the iPad2.
