Hands On: The Insider Report on the iPad 2

The recent reveal of the iPad 2 at an Apple convention is a big news story. This is causing many people to want to learn more about what is going on with the device and to see a variety of different kinds of features that come with it. A few prototypes have been made available to the media. Here are a few of the best things to see about this device.

Great benefits

I have been looking into seeing just what is going on with this device as a means of taking a look at the different ways how this is going to be compared with the original iPad. One thing that I have noticed is that it has a different design that is slightly smaller in size. This is useful because it is easy to control without worrying about lugging something that might be too difficult to deal with.

The processor on the tablet is also improved. This is used to help create easy to handle processes that will not lag easily. There is also a great deal of memory. The iPad 2 will come with either 16 or 64 GB of memory depending on the option a user gets.

There is also the fact that this is at the same price as the original iPad. This is a feature that I especially like because it makes the iPad 2 more accessible to more people.

Any problems?

Of course, there are a few problems that come with the iPad 2. For example, the device does not have cameras that are in high resolution. This is problematic even for the video messaging system. Also, the iPad 2 does not support Flash and it cannot handle any SD cards. This is especially difficult for those who want to use the iPad 2 like a digital camera.

What to expect

I feel that the iPad 2 definitely has a number of great benefits that make this useful and valuable. However, the problems that do come from the iPad 2 are ones that I feel that competitors are going to try and target. The rise of the Android system has made it so Apple will have to deal with a great deal of competition. This does not mean that there is not going to be any real reason to not buy the iPad 2. This will still be a useful tool for anyone who needs a tablet to get.
