The iPad 2 is already one of the most popular products of 2011, and it hasn’t even been released yet. The new device will feature a 1 GHz dual core A5 chip and cameras that were not included on the original version of the iPad 2. The CPU, all in all, will be up to two times as fast as the hardware from the original and Apple has claimed that the graphics performance will beup to nine times better than it was on the original iPad and iphone 4 unlocked, giving users access to play more advanced games on their tablet device.
Power requirements for the device have also remained the same. Your battery life will be just as long as it previously, which is good news because the battery life of the original iPad was one of the best selling points.
The device will start at $499 for 16 GB Wi-Fi only, and will go all the way up to $829 for the WiFi that comes complete with 3G connections and 64 GB of storage. One of the biggest features of the new iPad is the inclusion of an HDMI output that is capable of delivering images up to 1080p, which is a feature that many users were hoping would be included in the second version of the popular tablet device.
The new iOS 4.3 will be better suited for use on tablet devices, and many new apps will be made available during the launch including the heavily promoted iMovie and GarageBand, which should give users audio and video editing controls that have never before been available on the iPad, unlocked iphone 4 and other tablet devices.
The iPad 2 is highly anticipated, and so far it looks as though the iPad 2 will be living up to the hype based on what has been shown so far. Look for Apple to have another trick or two up their sleeves for the official launch, as they usually do.
