After all the round of rumors and leaked stuff iPad 2 has finally made an official public appearance at the Yerba Beuna Center of Arts, yesterday. Where Apple CEO Steve Jobs flaunted off to the audience.
The original iPad revolutionize the tablet industry and set a never matching standard, but it didn’t stop there because the iPad 2 even knocked off its predecessor.
The iPad 2 has got a whole new sleek and stylish design, which is almost 22% thinner than the original iPad, quoting exactly it is 8.8 mm which is even thinner than the iPhone 4. It is built off a whole unibody aluminum that will be available in two colors Black and White right from the day one unlike the White iPhone 4 that didn’t ever shown up.
The iPad 2 has got a powerful processor upgrade, which comes with a Dual-core A5 chip, which would speed up your usage experience to almost twice as fast.
iPad has never been considered as a just an eBook reader but it is a lot more than that, it let’s your surf internet, check mails, play games – oh! That reminds me of its next upgrade that makes iPad 2’s graphics performance up to 9x faster than its forerunner that means you can play games more smoothly with much better graphics than ever.
The only thing that the rival tablets had but iPad was missing, the camera! iPad 2 has got a rear camera with the ability to record 720p HD Videos along with a front facing VGA camera for video calling through FaceTime. You can do Face Time with the other iPad 2, iPhone 4 & iPod Touch and your Mac.
iPad 2 comes with a 360 degree gyroscope sensor for more precise handling which would know your twist, turn and tilt. That will definitely rise the gaming experience on another level.
10 hours Battery Life
With all these great features Apple has managed to sustain the battery life of 10 hours with the same 1-month of standby time.
iPad 2 will be tagging the same price label as the original iPad, starting from $499 and goes all the way to $829 and comes in three different storage size; 16, 32 & 64GB – and two types of connectivity models; WiFi & WiFi+3G.
