Review: Apple's New iPad 2

So, i finally got my ipad 2.

Time for a review.

specs:

1GHz dual-core Apple A5 custom-designed high-performance, low-power processor, can you imagine so much power inside a computer that small?

* 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit glossy widescreen Multi-Touch display with IPS technology
* 1024-by-768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch (ppi)
* Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating
* Support for display of multiple languages and characters simultaneously

Anyways, i got myself the WIFI version since i'm still saving up for the mac pro.
To be honest, i was a little dissapointed with it because i didn't see much change in the system from the iPad 1.

What i did notice was that it had softer animations than the ipad 1, and was more confortable on the hand than the first ipad.

the first ipad didn't have round edges and that gave it a horrible feel to the hands, the new one though, has very nice round ones much like the first generation iphone, i love it. speakers were loud and clear but unfortionately the camera was a little jerky in areas that have low lighting, i expected it to have some sort of flash atleast on the back camera much like the iphone 4, which was released before.

My iPad 3 expectations, (hey, it aint too early.)

-Retina Display for higher res.
-A flash at least on the back camera, c'mon its so simple and cheap.
-Make White models RARE. (This is because i had to buy a horrible white one because they only had those at the store!)
-Fix the jiggly Smart cover locking, if you put the smart cover on and move it abit you will hear the lock on sound over and over since you are moving the magnet off the place when it moves, this is a problem indicating that the smart cover is slightly loose, i dont know if this would mess up the ipad, because its as if i kept hitting the sleep/wake button randomly non stop.

-iPad 2 Buyers Tips
-Get a 3g, it may be more expensive but its worth it
-Only get a wifi if you're gonna use it for watching videos at night like i do
-Get a black one, the white ones are horrible man.
-Only get a 32gb-64gb if you have alot of movies or music, its like an ipod geez, you dont need that much.

Buy it from apple, not ebay. ebay sells them for twice the price.

Cheers.

pics comming soon.

Stay tuned and follow+

  10. I remember going to Best Buy and messing around with one. It had Bebot on it, and I couldn't stop laughing. My siblings had to drag me away, haha.

  11. Hahaha, as Stephen Colbert says... It can "not run Flash 9 times faster"

    But it's still a pretty awesome piece of machine. I wouldn't mind getting my hands on one! Oh, it would make taking notes at classes so much easier.
