The iPad 2 is finally here in its full glory! But is it nearly as good as it looks like? We quickly summed
up the main novelties that the new iPad offers and
compared them to the main features of the original
one. It all starts from the design – Apple outshines itself with an even thinner tablet. Actually, the new
iPad is even thinner than the iPhone 4 and while
you might not want to cut cake with it, you certainly
could. One of the few rumors that Cupertino didn't fulfil was the higher resolution expected by some. But in all honesty, we're pretty happy with
the tablet's current pixel density. A peek under the hood reveals amazing dual-core
works in the face of an all-new A5 chipset with the processor clocked at 1GHz. It promises to deliver a
lot more than the A4 chip on the first iPad with 9
times the graphical oomph. We only wish we knew
the exact amount of RAM memory on the iPad 2
and the megapixel count of the rear facing camera
(cough, Apple). We'll take Cupertino's word for the productivity boost, though, at least until we get the
iPad 2 for a detailed review. The wait shouldn't take
long – the tablet will hit shelves on March 11, but in the meantime take a look at our breakdown of the
specs of the iPad 2 on the left and the original iPad
on the right!
