iPad 2

The iPad was a huge development for Apple, and now they are offering the iPad 2. So how exactly is the iPad 2 different from the original? For $100 extra, it’s worth finding out. The thickness has gone from 13.4mm to 8.8mm for starters, and the radios and processors have been updated. The iPad 2 also offers a front and rear camera, and gyroscope. The display, storage and resolution however, remain the same. Visit http://www.apple.com/ipad/ for more specifics on the iPad 2.

Apple’s Ipad Release

I am sure you have heard all the buzz about the new Ipad that Apple has released. The iPad has a 9.7-inch touch screen, is a half-inch thick, weighs 1.5 pounds and comes with 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash memory storage. It comes with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity built in.

It seems to be the next generation of iphone. I give kudos to apple for introducing the iphone and ipod first, getting consumers accustom to using the interactive touch functionality. It now only makes sense to come out with a hybrid like the ipad. If you don’t like to lug around a bulky laptop or hate using a small device like the iphone, the ipad is just the ticket. This device not only has the functionality of a phone, laptop and computer but as also can be used by all walks of life including professionals, students and the general public.
