Updated on October 21, 2011

iPad 2 Features

After all the hype of the iPad, the iPad 2 is soon to take its place as the new tablet with even more features that make tech-savvy enthusiasts drool. Now that the iPad 2 features have been released, people seem anxious to check it out. The iPad was a very successful product for Apple, and as a result you will see that the iPad 2 has a very similar design to the iPad that Steve Jobbs introduced. Except the the iPad 2 is 30% slimmer than the original iPad.

That's right, the new iPad 2 will be 30% slimmer than the ipad, and it will be about 13% lighter than the original iPad. In addition to that, it will be twice as fast as it is equipped with a dual core A5 chip. The graphics capability is dramatically better and its much more noticeable when your playing games. As if that wasn't enough, the battery will still last as long as the original iPad at about 10 hours of use per charge. Of course this would be much longer when your iPad is in sleep mode.

Other Ipad 2 Features To Mention

It Has a Protective Screen Cover

The iPad 2 will have a polyurethane or leather cover that you can use to protect the screen of the iPad 2, but it comes as an option and the leather cover will be more expensive than the polyurethane cover. The screen cover will fold in a few parts so that you can also use it as a stand. In fact, this feature is so advanced that the iPad 2 will turn on automatically when you open the cover. The inside of the cover is said to have microfiber that helps to keep the screen clean.

It Has a Camera That Does HD Video

You guessed it, the iPad 2 will have a camera on both sides and will allow you to use new apps like Photobooth, a mac software for taking pictures. The rear facing camera will even shoot HD video, which is very exciting for people that want to use the iPad 2 for video and pictures. You will also have the ability to edit movies with iMovie.

Connect Your iPad 2 To Your HD TV

You now have the ability to hook your iPad 2 to your HD TV, and you can get full 1080p quality video. This can be a great tool for showing video, slide shows, presentations, or watching movies.

The Original iPad Is Dropping In Price

Indeed, now that all the hype is focused on the new iPad.  Many iPad owners are trying to sell the original iPad in hopes of getting money to buy the new iPad 2.  As a result, the price of the original iPad has already dropped and people that are buying them now are getting amazing deals on Amazon and other sites.  If you don't believe me, check it out yourself below. 

People that waited until now to buy the iPad are getting amazing deals because people are willing to sell used iPads for record low prices.  Furthermore, Apple lowered the price of the original iPad.  But if you want to see some impressive prices for the iPad be sure to check out Amazon, which has used iPads selling at super low prices.

      By Anonymous 2010 年 03 月 09 日 - 19:51:31Hi Johnny,Thanks for the posting. It's true,I beveile that iPad should have had already exists in the road map of Apple before the birth of iPhone. Rather than being a modified and improved" iPhone, iPad actually is the original goal and target of Jobs and Apple. iPhone is just the precursor and prepare the real thing. To use an analogy without any disrespect, we can say that iPhone is John the Baptist; iPad is Jesus Christ Himself"

      I just thought I would mention that the new iPad 2 doesn't come with the Apple Smart Cover that you mention in your hub. Yes, iPad 2 owners have a choice between the polyurethane Smart Cover and the leather Smart cover, but they must purchase it separately. The poly cover is $39 and the leather is $59! Just thought I would make that a little more clear! Great hub! Keep up the good work!
