THE iPad 2!
THE iPad 2 has been released today! There are many new feature to enjoy. It is available for sale on March 11. It is truly, a new type of device. It has been totally remastered. And better, Steve Jobs is back!!!!!
Some of the new feature consist of:
- Black or White
- Twice as fast (dual-core A5 chip)
- 9 times faster graphics
- 10 hours of battery life
- Rear-Facing HD Camera
- Another Camera (which makes 2)
- 33% Thinner
- 15% Lighter
One of the new differences between iPad 1 and iPad 2 is the design. In the second edition the top & bottom are slanted. Some more differences are that has a camera and the other obviously doesn’t. They included PhotoBooth on the iPad which is interesting in a good way.
Another large difference that Apple has included is something called the ‘Smart Cover’. This is a brand new idea. Of course you are wondering what this is. Keep reading. It is simply a cover for the top of the very thin iPad 2. But, there is much more to it than that. It is magnetic, so that your iPad Smart Cover can simply magnetize it self to the iPad. But, once again there is a big BUT, there is even more to that; it is designed to be folded, if you will. It is made to fold into a triangular prism type shape which is specially designed to make typing easier on the iPad. It can then be flipped the other way to enjoy videos. This I think is a wonderful feature that they should have included in the first iPad. Another great thing is that it comes in almost every color you could ever want .What I think is cool is that the iPad knows when the cover is opened/closed. And when it detects it being opened; it wakes it from sleep. And when you are done and put the cover back on it, it goes back to sleep
There is one add-on that is amazing. It is called video mirroring. What it does is it simply takes what you are doing on the iPad itself and does it on a monitor. Which is great for education. You just connect an adapter and plug it in to your TV and do some other stuff and your ready to go.

As Apple said on their home page “Thinner. Lighter. Faster. FaceTime. Smart Cover. 10-hour battery.” It really is a great device.
