Apple's first CDMA tablet is a version of the iPad 2 for Verizon, and it shares all its specs, save for the 1.34 pounds (607 g) of weight. The iPad 2 improves on its predecessor in both desing and hardware, since the renowned tablet is now thinner even than the iPhone 4 at 0.34" (8.8mm). It is powered by a 1GHz dual-core Apple A5 chipset, which provides 2x the CPU and 9x the GPU performance of its predecessor. All that while keeping the same 10 hours of battery life. Dressed entirely in black or white this time, the iPad 2 sports HDMI output via a separate cable, as well as rear and front-facing cameras - the first supports HD video recording, and the second FaceTime for video chat with other iDevices.

  • Technology:

    Technology - There are two main screen technologies currently used in phones and tablets: LCD and AMOLED. The former usually features a light source and liquid crystals, while the latter is based on organic light-emitting diodes. Newer LCD variations like IPS-LCD and Super-LCD allow for very accurate color reproduction and very wide viewing angles, where no significant image quality loss is observed. Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
