Being “thinner, lighter, faster, better”, the iPad 2 is born to catch the world’s attention. Though it may not break much new ground, yet still, the new tablet by Apple is standing far ahead of its counterparts. So why don’t we take a closer look to see if the device do make a difference.Inside the box you can find: an Apple iPad 2, of course, a Dock Connector to USB Cable, a 10W USB Power Adapter, and a documentation.
The front of the tablet is all screen like the predecessor with a home button at the bottom of the display. What’s new is a camera located opposite from the button at the top of the device. Adding of such small dot certainly makes FaceTime a even better experience.
At the back you can find the familiar (yet slightly smoother) aluminum of the Apple iPad. The flat back and the gentle taper on both sides form a neat and minimalistic design.
The camera at the back allows HD video recording. The portable size of the tablet makes it convenient for an immediate roll of camera during multi- tasking.
At the left you can find the screen lock/mute button and volume rocker. The new locations make them easier to use. Since many are expecting to have a mute button on iPad like that on the iPhone, Apple is friendly enough to allow users to choose if you want the button an orientation lock or a mute button.
Apple has relocated the single speaker of iPad to the back of the tablet. The sound seems somewhat clearer and quieter than the old setting.
On the top left harbours a 3.5mm headphone jack. All in all, though there’s may not be much advancement brought by the new model, yet the iPad 2 presented by Apple by far still take the lead in quality of both hardwadr and software. It certainly worths the deal.
