Advantages: fast, fun and easy to use
Disadvantages: not cheap, its around 440 pounds
After the huge success of the Ipad1, Ipad2 came out quickly. When you once have the iPad 2 in your hands, you do not stop playing with it. iPad2 is 33 percent thinner and 15 percent lighter, making it more pleasant to hold. Furthermore, Internet, email, watching movies and reading books feel so natural that you almost forget you're hodling a highly sophisticated device in your hands.
The reason why I have chosen the 16gb is because I am convinced that 16 gb is more than enough storage. I can save some 100 pictures and I have enough apps installed and then there's plenty of room for other things. So why should I pay more for more storage if I do know I have enough with 16gb.
The ipad2 has a very light weight of about 600g, it is very thin and therefore easily hold in your hand. The corners are finished with beautiful curves which gives it a even more beautiful design. The iPad is available in two colors black and white, only the front edge has your desired color. The back of is silver with the Apple logo. There are also very few buttons around and on the iPad, first there is a button that you use to return to the main menu but fits perfectly with the design and on the side you have the on / off button and volume button.
What Apple has said is that the Ipad 2 would be much faster than the first but I can not make the comparison because I am not in possession of a ipad 1. But I can say that the Ipad 2 is very smooth. You do not have to wait when using the menu and program and only when you install an app you have to wait about 30 sec.
The screen of the ipad2 is fine, everything is sharp and the video it will look fine too. The iPad has a resolution of 1024x768 and the screen is 9.7 inches, which I find a good size. Touching the screem is more than smooth, with each touch the ipad reacts super fast. The disadvantage is that you quickly fingerprints on the screen but with a soft cloth, these look so again.
The sound is fine and he can go quite loud and the sound remains pure, the only drawback I can think of is that the speakers sit at the back which may have interference from the sleeve if you have one.
The ipad2 is even equipped with two cameras! The front camera is for video chat and camera on the back is to just take pictures. But unfortunately I find the result shocking, the image is blurry unless take a picture in bright light. You have a calendar, address book, picture folder, mail, and many more gadgets, but these are the five main ones.
The battery of the iPhone last very long, I can go 3 nights using it about 3.5 hours in a row intensively, watching movies, internet and games.
My conclusion is that I am very happy with my iPad and I would recommend him to anyone. The iPad responds super fast and if you want to completely replace a laptop you better check what programs you use. It simply can't replace all of them.
