iPAD 2 – A great tablet gets even thinner and faster

As you know,the year 2010 was the year for tablets. The ‘war’ began when APPLE launched the iPad in April of 2010.All the other tech giants choose to fight against iPad when the started to introduce Xoom,TouchPad,Playbook etc.,let alone those cheaper pads. But the new weapon pointed by Apple strikes, when leave seeded Steve Jobs strikes with ( 02th March 2011) the iPad 2 in the same price with more efficiency and higher performances. Now,why you can choose iPad 2?

The iPad really needs no introduction, it quickly became the world’s favorite slate tablet. Of course, that wasn’t hard since consumer slate tablets were a rarity at the time and most of them ran full Windows, an OS not really optimized for touch-only input. Fast forward 11 months and Apple owns approximately 73% of the market (they’d had a higher percentage for several months but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7” Android tablet came out in November 2010 and grabbed some market share). Additional Android competitors are just now letting loose with their offerings, some of which boast better specs than the original iPad.

The iPad 2 ships with the latest version of iOS: 4.3. You can also upgrade a first gen iPad to this OS, along with late model iPhones and iPod Touch handhelds. The new OS adds AirPlay enhancements, iTunes Home Sharing and a much faster Javascript engine that cuts in half page rendering times when loading Javascript-laden pages.

Enter the iPad 2, an evolutionary product that keeps the specs competitive with a 1GHz dual core A5 CPU, double the RAM of the original iPad and supports 3G version that accompanies the GSM and CDMA as well. Though it still doesn’t boast the highest specs, specs aren’t everything. The iPad runs the popular, intuitive and familiar iOS for a user experience that’s hard to beat, at least for non-techie types. If you can use an iPhone or iPod Touch, you can use the iPad 2. There are 65,000 tablet-optimized apps on iTunes, so you’ll never go hungry for software. The base price for a WiFi-only 16 gig model remains at $499, making it price competitive with other tablets. In fact, this is one of the few times Apple’s product is actually less expensive than the competition’s.

Like the original iPad, the iPad 2 is sold without cellular contract, even if you buy one with a Verizon or AT&T 3G radio inside. You’ll pay month by month for data (if you want it), and all iPad 2 models have WiFi 802.11b/g/n. They’re available in 16, 32 and 64 gig models, and the top-of-the-line 64 gig WiFi + 3G model sells for $829 regardless of carrier.
