iPad 2 has come out! Review
The much awaited iPad 2 launch date was finally over. On March 2, 2011 the iPad 2 launch took place. The iPad 2 is much lighter and thinner than its predecessor. The iPad 2 has front-facing VGA camera which takes 720p video, just like the iPhone 4’s rear snapper. The iPad 2 battery life remains the same 10 hour battery life as before and the standby time is 1 month. The iPad 2 display is exactly the same, which is 9.7-inch display. iPad 2 goes dual-core based on the new processor called the Apple A5 and is based on ARM’s Cortex-A9 design and is probably clocked at 1GHz again. iPad 2 graphics will be awesome, as according to Steve Jobs, something like 9x that of the current iPad. The graphics will still be a version of Imagination Technologies’ PowerVR SGX graphics technology. iPad 2 has iOS 4.3, faster Safari browsing performance, iTunes Home Sharing and an enhancement to AirPlay. The stupid switch problem on the side, which locked the orientation has been fixed. HDMI Video Mirroring lets you mirror your iPad screen on an HDTV. The iPad 2 also supports HSUPA support, which means faster uploads over 3G. It’s only available on the iPad 2 Wi-Fi+3G. The iPad 2 UK release date has been set to 25 March. Though, Steve Jobs says that “we’re launching iPad 2, which moves the bar far ahead of the competition”, unfortunately though, it’s just not true. The latest Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablets are a match for the new iPad.
The iPad 2 ship dates have been set as follows:
iPad 2 Shipping Date for USA: March 11
iPad 2 International Shipping Date: March 25 – for Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Ireland, Hungary, Japan, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, UK
The remaining countries will get the iPad in the coming weeks and months.
