    As a review of specs, I’d like to update the features which Apple made to iPad 2.

    The iPad 2 has front and rear cameras for photos, video, and facetime. Initially reviews say the cameras are very weak, but should be good enough for Face Time chat and basic photo shoot features. The iPad 2 features the Apple’s A5 dual core processor, which will help graphics run up 9x faster while maintaining the same 10 hour battery life as the original iPad. It has a gyroscope, which is perfect for gaming. The iPad 2 is 33% thinner than it predecessor at 0.34 inches and weighs only 1.33 pounds. The iPad 2 supports 3G service from Verizon, in addition to AT&T. The plans at Verizon start from $20 per month for 1 GB of data. With an $40 adapter, you can hook up your iPad 2 to any TV with an HDMI port and display apps, websites, videos etc on the big screen. The iPad 2’s smart cover received as many reviews as the iPad itself. The smart cover snaps on with magnets and puts the iPad to sleep when you close it.

      I don’t think I’m going to put the iPad 2 down once I get my own. Can’t wait to test out the DISH Remote Access from DISH Network, watching live TV or recorded content where I may be is brilliant. If I’m stuck at the airport or in a hotel room out of town for work at DISH I still have the ability to keep up with all my favorite shows live. The other week in California I was able to watch my local Denver programs. Only DISH is able to offer this.
