Let's kick this review of with prices!
Some people would argue the iPad is too expensive for what it is. But they're wrong! For the price you get a fast, easy to use, fun, entertaining and simply amazing tablet.
I have been using the iPad 2 Wi-Fi 16GB for just under a year and have not been let down once by it.
You have 2 cameras on the iPad 2. A front facing camera, making it easier for you to take pictures of yourself, or whatever is in front of the screen. You also have the usual rear facing camera, used to take the usual pictures.
When you first get the iPad, as usual with Apple products, packaging is kept too the minimum. Containing the iPad, charger, USB sync cable and even a small Apple logo sticker. Cool, huh?!
The iPad usually comes with a bit of charge, Apple obviously know that when you first get a gadget you want to get straight on it, and not wait for it to charge.
As with a lot of Apple products, the iPad is very easy to use! Things such as connecting to the internet are just so easy! Put your password in, hit OK, and your pretty much sorted!
Also, as mentioned in my iPhone review, you have the great, humungous App Store! With dozens and dozens of iPad apps, ready and waiting for you to download. Oh, not to forget, you can even download iPhone apps on an iPad, it just displays them in a smaller, iPhone size window.
You can freely arrange the layout of your apps, put them into categories and put them on the pages you wish. Simply by holding in on an app, at which point they all start shaking, and dragging the app. This is the same if you wish to delete them.
Graphics on the iPad 2 are awesome too! A lot of games I have tried have had amazingly sharp, HD graphics. Making your playing experience even better! (Graphics on the iPad 3 are even better again, purely down to the fact Apple upgraded the display).
A lot of people have been let down by the fact iPads don't play Flash movies. In my opinion, that's too be expected. Maybe in the future Apple will incorporate Flash into it's products.
Summary: Great tablet. Definitely wouldn't choose any other.
