What Can You Expect From The iPad 2?
Should You Change To The iPad 2?
The iPad 2 has been in the news, so almost of us know that it has been released. Apple launches constantly produce a lot of buzz. Apple fans could be the cause of this or is it truly that their product releases are so good? I would say it could be one or the other, talking as an unbiased onlooker in this. Twelve months separate the launch dates of the iPad and now the iPad 2. So, if you got the initial model, I will now offer my opinion on if you should consider switching to the iPad 2.



The iPad 2 is a lot smaller than the first iPad model. The size of the screen has remained the same at a nice 9.7 inches; nonetheless, the thickness of the second iPad has been reduced by one third of the original size, which of course is a nice thing. The weight of the iPad 2 has likewise seen a decrease with it now weighing in on the scales at a mere 600 grams. Light by any standards. I’ve had both an iPad and an iPad 2 and I should say there is a noticeable divergence in its feel. It would be a wrong presumption to think that this slimmer, lighter version does not function as well.

Comparing to the original iPad, the iPad 2 is speedier. For one, Apple brags that its graphics processor is nine times speedier than the initial iPad. This is a significant improvement if we believe that as read. The reason for this improvement is for demanding games and the camera, which we’ll come onto before long. In addition, the switch from an A4 to an A5 chip implies that Apple has a better processor inside. The newly released iPad’s A5 dual core processor is what makes it faster than the previous model. I surely found it was faster, even with several programs working in the background. If I use several media on the first model and then the latest iPad, the better load speed time is evident.

Now, onto the new addition of the cameras; not just one, but two cameras are on the iPad 2. One is on the front side and the other camera is on the rear. The initial iPad didn’t come with cameras at all, so this is a big feature if you’re bothered about having a camera on your device. A slightly better capability of one of the cameras is the ability to photograph in 720p HD. The iPad 2 decided to add FaceTime and Photobooth, giving you the ability to video call and shoot all sorts of pics. The back camera, when using FaceTime on the iPad, shows where you are as opposed to the front camera that lets you see each other.



If you have money and desire the new speedier processing times then upgrading from the first iPad to iPad 2 probably makes sense. If we disregard the cameras, then the alterations are not groundbreaking but do make it a better model.
