Apple iPad 2 Wi-Fi 16 GB ... Two cameras for FaceTime and HD video recording. The dual-core A5 chip. The same battery life. All in a thinner, lighter design. Now iPad is even more amazing. And even less like anything else!
Once you pick up iPad 2, it'll be hard to put down. That's the idea behind the all-new design. It's 33 percent thinner and up to 15 percent lighter, so it feels even more comfortable in your hands. And it makes surfing the web, checking email, watching movies, and reading books so natural, you might forget there's incredible technology under your fingers.
With up to nine times the graphics performance, gameplay on iPad 2 is even smoother and more realistic. And faster graphics help apps perform better - especially those with video. You'll see it when you're scrolling through your photo library, editing video with iMovie, and viewing animations in Keynote.
iPad is one big, beautiful display - 9.7 inches of high-resolution photos, movies, web pages, books, and more. LED backlighting makes everything you see remarkably crisp, vivid, and bright. Even in places with low light, like an airplane. And there's no wrong way to hold iPad. It's designed to show off everything in portrait and landscape, so with every turn (even upside down), the display adjusts to fit. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178° viewing angle. Hold it up to someone across the room, or share it with someone sitting next to you, and everyone gets a brilliant view.
Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural, almost like there's no technology at all. That's Multi-Touch on iPad. You use your fingers to do everything, so everything you do - surfing the web, typing email, reading books, and swiping through photos - is easier and a lot more fun. How does it work? When your fingers touch the display, it senses them using electrical fields. Then it instantly transforms your taps, swipes, pinches, and flicks into lifelike actions. Just like that.
With the built-in accelerometer, you can rotate iPad to portrait or landscape, or even upside down, and whatever you're watching, reading, or seeing adjusts to fit the display. And now the accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope, and compass all work together. They sense which direction iPad is heading and how it's moving. So games, maps, and other apps know your every twist, turn, tilt, and 360. It's an epic win for gaming. And it's just the beginning of better-than-ever iPad apps.
iPad is built with advanced 802.11n wireless technology. It automatically finds Wi-Fi networks, which you can join with a few taps. iPad with Wi-Fi is ideal if you have a wireless high- speed Internet router in your home, or if you'll be using your iPad near a wireless hotspot - in a café or a school library, for example.

As a mature student, I've been lugging a huge laptop to and from uni for two years and debating whether to shell out for an iPad to save me from shoulder pain and serious lack of 'cool'. Finally, in my third year, I've been given one as a Christmas present! The iPad 2 is now the 'basic' iPad model available from apple. The later versions have been replaced with the new, lovely looking iPad Air, however this '2' is absolutely fine for a first model, and still feels novel and exciting. Its a good size, compared to the mini version its much better for watching films, playing games, and the bigger screen means that you can actually use it for some ... Read the complete review

Before I received my iPad 2 as a present the Christmas before last, I really, really wanted an iPad. I was attracted by the very portable nature of the device , the fact that I could connect to the Wi-Fi and access the internet from wherever I was in the house (on the sofa, in the kitchen, even in bed) and, of course, the fact that it was a shiny new gadget that I didn't actually own. We had (and still have) a desktop PC which has appeared to be on its last legs for the last couple of years and takes an age to go from being switched on to actually allowing you to surf the net, so the instant connectivity offered by the iPad was a big selling point for me. After all, who . Read the complete review

I bought this iPad when it was first released from HMV for £399, but it has since gone down in price. I bought it as an upgrade from the original iPad 1. I saw there was a lot of hype about it so I wanted to see if it would be any better than the first iPad. And it was! The 9.7" screen is brilliant and the resolution of it is really brilliant, viewing photos and videos is amazing. The iPad has been dropped a few times but it has proven to be hard wearing, although it is quite easy to scratch the back. The screen has gained a small crack but that was from leaving it on the floor and someone stepped on it... oops... The battery life is very ... Read the complete review

Apple redefined tablet PC's with the 1st generation iPad. The 2nd generation was a continuation of this and since its release it has only been bettered by its successor, the ipad 3! If you are reading this review I can only assume you know what I am iPad is. In short its a device for storing/listening to music and videos, accessing the internet and downloading and using a multitude of various applications. As with most Apple products you get value for money. Although compared to some other tablet PC's on the market it may seem a little steep in price, the comparison in performance is astounding. The iPad 2, even now, is still markedly ahead of a ... Read the complete review

For quite a few years, my family has coped quite well with just having the one PC. It sits in the living room and most of the time, someone is on it, either working, playing games or searching the internet. However, now my son is 11 and due to start secondary school, he expressed a desire for his own computer. A lot of the homework at secondary school is done online and I also thought that it would be a nice gift to celebrate the fact he was making such a major transition. At first, we were happy considering laptops, but when my friend suggested an iPad, my son was convinced that this was the perfect computer for him, largely due to the coolness ...
