iPad 2

 

Slimmer and faster than the original, and sporting a camera, the iPad 2 is the best tablet on the market.

Fast dual-core CPU ; Lighter and Slimmer than previous iPad ; iOS best tablet operating system available

Somewhat low screen resolution ; 3G model is expensive ; Doesn't serve any specific function

The problem for these iPad-rivals is that Apple wasn't sitting idle during the year-long head start it had over the competition. And so while the likes of the Xoom and PlayBook have been designed to best the iPad (and looked set to easily do so had...

Apple iPad 2 review

 

The Apple iPad 2, arguably the best tablet computer on the planet, has just received a stylish makeover. The brainchild of former Apple CEO Steve Jobs, it sports the latest high-tech specs and features

Admittedly, the iPad 2 is more of an evolutionary step for Apple, akin to the jump from iPhone 3 to 3GS. If you already own an iPad then you’re not missing out too much by waiting for the next iteration before you upgrade. If you held off from buying...

Second iteration of the Apple iPad looks similar, but it's faster, lighter and slimmer

Unrivalled usability ; tons of apps and content ; AirPlay ; svelte design

Closed shop for content ; no Flash ; more features elsewhere

Best tablet, Awards 2011. The marriage of content, functionality and performance remains unsurpassed

Apple iPad 2 Vs Motorola Xoom

 

Comparison: It's tablet war as Apple takes on Android

Expert review by : Paul Lamkin (pocket-lint.com)

Apple iPad 2

 

The Apple iPad 2 is finally here. It's a device that has been a year in the making. We've pretty much been picturing what the iPad 2 would and would not include ever since Steve Jobs donned his famous turtleneck to announce the prequel back on 27...

An awesome tablet which improves on an already successful platform

No display resolution bump, trouble with backlight bleeding

Those grumbles shouldn't take away from the fact that the iPad 2 is a great device. A superb tablet that builds on the strengths of the original and packs a heftier punch with a much slimmer waistline. The iPad 2 is the Manny Pacquiao of the tablet...

Apple iPad 2 review

 

Flatter, faster and photographier, can Apple's 2nd-gen iPad keep the wolf in Android clothing from the door?

Lighter ; Faster ; Better

Terrible camera ; Kindle's screen is better for ebooks

Still the smoothest tablet experience, even if Apple is no longer the only game in town

iPad 2 review

 

Apple's new tablet is the best of its kind, but is it really good enough?

Fantastic design ; Better ergonomics ; Good battery life ; iOS 4.3 brings improvements ; Facetime chats ; Smudge-resistant screen

Where's the innovation ; No retina screen ; Still no Flash ; Negligable performance boost
