A sneak peek at the the Apple iPad 2

Apple iPad 2 AppsThe iPad 2 reigned supreme as the king of tablets and brought much interest in the world of tablets which were starting to go out of fashion. The iPad 2 is a piece of sleek technology but Apple has decided to go one step ahead and launch it’s next version which promises to cover the flaws of the first iPad. So here is a look at the technical specs of the new iPad 2.

Body Design

First things frist, the new iPad 2 is 33% slimmer than the old one and at 8.8 mm is thinner than even the iPhone4. It weighs less than 600 grams which should be quite an improvement over the current one, this makes it more useful as an ebook reader and could give the king of ebook reader ‘The Kindle’ a run for its money.

The feel of the iPad 2 has also got a makeover, it now feels more like a slim pad piece of paper compared to the old one that felt like a slab. The build quality is impressive as any other Apple product. The new version is set to roll out in a black and white version as well which ofcourse will cost slightly lesser than the colour one, now every one can get a piece of the iPad. The iPad 2 also comes with an HDMI adapter.

ipad 2 Smart Cover

This a an Apple first, the new feature simply called the Apple Smart Cover is a new replacement for the current iPad case and Apple stressed the fact that it is not a case but has several uses. The Smart Cover has two metal hinges that attach themselves to the magnets built into the iPad 2 and will cover the screen. The iPad 2 goes into sleep mode when covered ( a good battery saving feature) by the Smart Cover.

Though the Smart Cover is another innovative design from Apple, many may prefer the traditional case. For those of you who would like a little colour in your life, the Smart Cover comes in a range of colours and finishes to suit your taste.

OS and Apps

The iPad 2 will sport the new iOS4.3 that will also also be available for the iPhone,iPod Touch and the current iPad. Two new apps were developed just for the purpose of serving the new iPad: iMovie and Garage Band, they will be available for purchase in the App Store. The new apps promise to provide the same looks and functionality as their desktop versions.

The new OS allows iPhone 4 users to share 3G connections with an iPad via wi-fi.

First ipad 2 Impressions

The iPad 2 continues from where it’s predecessor left off. Apple hasn’t gone all out on the new version but it brought in much needed upgrades to the new version. The best part is the PC-like functionality which is sure to make it a more useful device.

Nothing can be said more of the iPad 2 until it’s release and a thorough review of the device is done. Until then, all we can do is to drool over the videos on YouTube.
