iPad 2: Full Specifications and Review

Listen to this article

This device is packed with a dual-core processor in the body of the new A5 Chip CPU which is twice faster, 9x faster GPU but it still maintains a low power just like the A4 chip. It’s also worth mentioning that the iPad 2 is the first dual-core device of Apple for tablets and mobile category.
Aside from the new front-facing camera, which has been predicted and wished since the moment of conception with the first iPad, a new application would also be included after you upgrade with iOS 4.3. Featuring Photobooth and Facetime, in which the former is an application for distorting your pictures on the go, like the liquify on Adobe Photoshop, although this one is happening live as you stream if from your iPad supporting different effects. While Facetime call brings you the same Facetime experience on iPhone / iPod Touch whereas you can use this for iPad to iPad — iPhone — even to Mac conversations.

Gyroscope – for an accurate gameplay and applications that needs precise movement (the same experience from iPhone 4 / iPod Touch 4G)

10 hour battery life – the same with the iPad 1, although this one has twice the CPU power.

HDMI video-out – works with all apps, full 1080p support, no setup configuration, charge it while using, available for 39 USD.

iPad Smart Cover – A “magical” blue foldable flap protecting the screen of the device which could be converted as a stand (tripod) as well – pretty amazing! In addition to that, it has a magnetic grasp with auto-align, and it cleans the screen with its micro-fiber line. Plus, it automatically wakes the iPad from sleep when you remove it (sleep on close). Price is tagged at 39 USD for polycarbonate case and 69 for the leather one. With 10 different colors to choose from!
