Well the iPad 2 has been out for just over a month now, so I thought it was high time for an article comparing the first iPad to the iPad 2, and helping you to see why you should get one yourself.Let’s start with the most obvious feature of both the iPads, the screen, both of the iPads have the same 9.7″ LED-backlit IPS LCD screen, so no difference there, with both of them having the same resolution.Next, the processor, now this is different, the first iPad has a 1GHz Apple A4 processor where as the iPad 2 has a 1 GHz ‘Dual-core’ Apple A5 processor, which means the speed will be noticeable different, giving you faster load times and being able to deliver better graphics (that’s 9x better graphics!) then on the original iPad, so you will be able to play games without any compromise. The iPad has 256MB of DDR RAM, where as the iPad comes with 512MB of DDR2 RAM, which is only going to help improve your speed and experience of the iPad 2There won’t be any change in the storage sizes of the iPads, both of them will still have (the standard) 16GB, 32GB and 64GB versions, more than enough space when you are on the go.There are a few more features which are the same on both iPads, such as both of them have Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g and n, EDGE plus triband (iPad 2 has quad band) HSPA and Bluetooth 2.1. The last feature that both of the iPads share is the 3-axis accelerometer, and that’s where the similarities end.Now for the new features that the iPad 2 has, the main new feature that the iPad 2 has that the iPad didn’t have, is the 3-axis gyroscope.As well as this, the iPad 2 has two cameras, one front facing and one rear, the front facing camera is VGA, and the rear camera is 720p, which means that you can now take photos and record videos on the go, the iPad 2 also now supports Face Time, so you can chat to your nearest and dearest on the go.The thickness of the iPad 2 is just 8.8mm, where as the iPad was 13.4mm, that means that apple managed to shave of a third of the thickness, as well as that, the iPad 2 is lighter, at just 601g, compared to the 680g for the iPad, whilst shaving the weight, Apple have managed to keep the same amazing battery life that the iPad had.To finish this new iPad 2 launch off, Apple also created a Smart Cover, which was designed alongside the iPad, to make them a perfect match for each other. The iPad smart cover comes in 10 bright colours, including give which are in rich aniline-dyed Italian leather.That’s everything that you need to know about the iPad 2, if that hasn’t made you want to buy one, then it may not be for you, but you will be missing out.
