Apple iPad 2 vs iPad: what's new

0. phoneArena 02 Mar 2011, 14:34 posted on

The iPad 2 is finally here in its full glory! But is it nearly as good as it looks like? We quickly summed up the main novelties that the new iPad offers and compared them to the original one. It all starts from the design – Apple outshines itself with an even thinner tablet…

Yea, exactly...what kind of RAM?? And mp of cameras?? Why were those not mentioned?? Not very hard to improve the first stripped down version, right??

Go to JFK airport and you will find all the ipads there, waiting to take your order as you wait in the terminal to catch your plane. It looks like ipad heaven :)

If they specified the RAM and the camera megapixels, would you buy it? Probably not. So why ask? Oh yes, because you're just hating :)

yea you're only spending 600 bucks- why should you need to know the specs?

Because that's how Apple rolls. Most consumers have no idea what they're getting or why and they don't really care. Besides MP and RAM type are useless information. A camera with higher MP doesn't mean it's a better camera, if you want know quality, they should put what lens type they use. And memory is never the bottleneck of a system, so it's not really significant.

The HDMI adapter works on the iPad and other iOS devices as well.

1. Using all caps is annoying and stupid.
2. Just because you don't use it doesn't mean it's useless.

The most news breaking thing about the iPad 2 is that it offers options now.
BLACK OR WHITE!

If that's the only worthy feature that you saw with the ipad2, I suggest you stay away from tech sites :)

90%?? 08 to 09 maybe. Thankfully, people are finally realizing that making your smartphone decision based simply on what your friend has, isn't the best way to go at it.

I have android phone i love it. I wouldnt trade it for an iphone because i like what i can do with it. Yes, they do the same things. But you cannot say apple is a bad company. Honestly you just sound like idiot. Look a Verizon's sales now. Everything they release is normally a great product.

I agree, keep phonearena for phones only. Tablets are cool, but unless it can make phone calls then it shouldn't be on a phone website. Oh, and stop voting people down just because they tell the truth.

Dude I might agree with your assessment that tablets are not "technically" phones, but really, give it a break. it's getting old!

I like to read tablet news just as much as phone news, and I don't want to go to ANOTHER website to read just the tab news!

now, will you rest already!

Well seeing as how it's being sold by a phone company and uses a phone company data plan, it should be allowed to be mention on a phone website. I would like to know about all the offerings from Verizon.

ATT sells TV service too. Lets just make the site ET or TMZ just because a phone company is involed. Idiot.

And now the commencing of the "everyone kicking their own a$$ for not waiting to get the ipad 3" can begin. Followed shortly by "everyone punching themselves in the face for not waiting to get the ipad 4". What a vicious cycle of eventual self-loathing apple has created.

And how often android tablets will get released this year again? Much more than the ipad.

Another iFail that will sell to a million idiots who already bought the first one. Cuz ya know, its worth another 600 out of pocket to add on a VGA camera and another core. lol. Well, at least apple is sticking to their mantra of "over priced devices recieving minor upgrades every year so idiots will keep buying them".


no thanks. if i ever need a tablet, ill get an android. ya know, the tablets with real options, not just a one size fits none mentality.

You're just as bad as remixfa. Why do people have such loyalty to stupid pieces of hardware.

Haha it must suck being an android fan boy. Always wanting sooo badly for android to win out and yet it never happens. Android always finishes second and the fan boys desperately try to explain why it's better. A vicious cycle lol.
