iPad 2 iPad 2
Following up on the wildly successful, market-defining tablet, Apple launched the iPad 2 this year. Its latest iteration is nearly identical to its first generation in its software and hardware. It is powered by a 1 GHz dual-core processor and boasts front and back facing cameras which bring to this tablet, Apple's unique face chat feature 'Facetime'. It is sleeker and lighter than its predecessor as the thickness has been scaled down to 8.8mm from 13.4mm and the weight has been reduced to 601g from 730g. In design, the iPad 2 leads from the front and offers stiff competition to competitors. It is an incredibly handsome and svelte package; the thin profile is thoughtfully crafted by combining tapered edges. A wide array of apps - like iMovie, Face Time, GarageBand - synced with the iPad 2 make it desirable. Despite nonstop playback, the gadget has an astonishing 10.5 hours battery life. A great accessory is Apple's Smart Covers, a screen protector in flap design. The protector's wellplaced magnets attach to the iPad's edges to keep the screen clean and put the gadget to sleep.
