The long awaited iPad 2 has arrived, after much speculation the gadget was unveiled in the usual Apple style. After unveiling version one of the iPad in April last year the company has been thinking about bigger and better ways to improve the revolutionary gadget. Steve Jobs was back and the world waited with baited breath. The reviews so far indicate that the tablet is better than ever.
As many of you may know the iPad 2 is lighter and quicker than its predecessor. The device weighs just 100 grams and the technology giant has managed to make the gadget even slimmer. They have also created a cover for the iPad which holds the iPad in place with magnets.
This is the second time that the company have launched their own holder, indicating that they will move into this field in the future. Previously cases for Apple products were designed and sold by other companies, which still happens. However, Apple now seems to have designs on that slice of the pie as well.
The smart cover doubles up as a keyboard stand; you can also fold it back to tilt iPad into a comfortable writing position. It automatically wakes and sleeps your iPad and its microfiber lining keeps your screen clean. The cover is designed in a way that only Apple can engineer, smart, practical and stylish.
The technology giant is not only taking over its own accessory design, the new iPad moves towards the phone market and the digital camera field.
The latest product offers FaceTime and calls to other iPhone users seem to be incredibly successful. The new iPad is also powered by a revolutionary new 'A5' chip, which offers dual-core processors. The iPad 2 is twice as fast as its predecessor and the tablet’s graphics are nine times better.
The ability of Apple to dominate the market is only furthered by the new product. There are now just over a quarter of a million apps and it seems unrealistic that other companies will be able to catch up any time soon.
The gadget has a ten hour battery life, which equates to a long-haul flight and the device also has the ability to connect to other technology and even TV screens. This is done by attaching the Apple Digital AV Adapter. There is also a dock for our charger in the new adapter, so you don’t have to worry about running out of battery half way through your presentation.
Prices start at £399 for the basic model (16GB and Wi-Fi-only) and £579 for the 32GB model with Wi-Fi and 3G. To buy the new iPad 2 click here.
