Reviews for the Apple iPad 2

90% Review Apple iPad 2 Tablet/MID | Notebookcheck
Successor to the Throne. About one year ago, Apple laid the foundation for the iPad, a groundbreaking new tablet series. Apples iPad 2 comes with new hardware: dual-core CPUs and front and rear cameras. These upgrades are just in time, because the iPads first worthy opponent is about to be released: the Android 3.0 tablet.
Apple iPad 2 vs iPad 3 comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
Overall the iPad 3 is a decent upgrade from the iPad 2 in a number of key areas. The retina quality display is the most impressive and there’s a faster processor and better cameras. 4G connectivity is handy if you want that feature. All this for roughly the same price refurbished makes this a no brainer.

Google Nexus 10 vs Apple iPad 2 comparison review
Source: PC Advisor English
That the Nexus 10 is only £10 more than the iPad 2 is, on the face of it, outrageously good value. The Nexus is brand new, has an unsurpassed display, and offers the best all-round performance of any tablet around. The iPad 2 remains on sale to give Apple fans a lower-priced alternative to the full-specced iPad. But there are reasons for this situation. The Nexus 10 is heavily subsidised by Google as a means of getting people to use Android and - critically - buy apps and media from Google Play. Were Samsung to make and sell it on its own terms its likely the price would be nearer that of the Galaxy Note 10.1 - nearly twice as much. That doesn't stop it being a good deal of course. That said the iPad 2 remains a good deal. The combination of Nexus 10 and Android 4.2 alone offer a similarly high quality experience as Apple's iPad. So for those who just have to have Apple tech, but cannot afford the iPad 4, the iPad 2 is a decent point of entry.

Tablet Face-Off: Budget Models From Acer and Asus vs. Apple's iPad 2
Source: PC World English
If you’re buying a tablet because you’re looking for nifty software and want to keep your costs down, you’re still better off with iPad 2. But the Android platform has its advantages, also, and the Transformer Pad TF300 remains the best value choice today—especially if you opt for the 32GB version at $400. Not only will you get a lot of bang for your buck at that price, but the Transformer Pad’s Tegra 3-optimized graphics are capable of some impressive tricks over the iPad 2, if the handful of games optimized for the platform appeal to you.

Source: V3.co.uk English
The Transformer Prime triumphs over the iPad 2 in almost all areas, but the Apple device is still an excellent tablet in its own right. Business users may still be tempted by the Apple ecosystem, which is embraced by IT admins. Android is still viewed with caution when it comes to security, but the Prime is a jack-of-all trades in terms of usability. The ability to use the device as a tablet or netbook is something that proves hugely valuable and its multimedia capabilities are unmatched by Apple at this time.

Apple MacBook Air 11in vs iPad 2 head-to-head review
Source: V3.co.uk English
Although it's technically a draw, the MacBook Air wins out in key areas of performance, interface and connectivity. The laptop is definitely the better option for productivity on the move, and can be used in an office because it has excellent specifications. Those who just want to browse the internet on the move would be better suited to the iPad 2. We recommend buying a Wi-Fi-only iPad 2 and using the extra money to invest in a mobile phone contract with a generous data allowance. The tablet can be tethered to the smartphone when Wi-Fi is not available, and this will save on having to pay two separate contracts. Given the choice, V3 definitely opts for the laptop over the tablet, as it is so much more useful and is definitely worth the extra investment. WINNER- MacBook Air.

Overall, though, the iPad 2 experience is overwhelmingly positive. We wish the cameras were better, and that Apple would open up its closed system just a bit; but in all it’s a resounding success in a market where Apple’s every competitor has so far fallen short of greatness. If you’re in the market for a tablet, you’d be mad not to put the iPad 2 at the top of your list.

The new iPad 2 is lighter, faster, slimmer and a lot more feature-laden than the original iPad. This is not merely a midterm upgrade designed to bridge the original iPad with the future iPad 3 – this is a significant upgrade to the iPad and worthwhile in its own right. The iPad 2 will maintain Apple’s huge lead in the tablet market.

The iPad 2 is a wonderful device that’s easy to use, fun, and runs some excellent applications—a good number which are business related. It’s not versatile enough to replace your laptop, and it certainly can’t match a Windows 7 tablet for power, but the iPad 2 is a different type of product.

So my recommendation is, if you are already hooked into the Apple economy and iTunes then the iPad 2 will fit right in with the rest of your stuff. However, if you have been resisting the temptation to jump in, then you may want to wait a little longer. The Android platform is much more open and flexible, and with a pluthera of Android tablets on the horizon, prices will be dropping. As for me I will hang onto this tablet for a while so I can compare it against some new Android tablets, but in the end I will sell it because it is not a fit for me.

If we had to name a second-place contender, the only device nearing the slickness of operation and natural hardware/software integration is – last year’s iPad.

Without the majority of the tablet competition yet available it's hard to definitively call the iPad 2 the best of this generation. However, it's here, it's good and it's well priced, all of which gives the competition even more to live up to when they finally arrive. The iPad 2 is still just a toy - we can't believe that anyone could need an iPad - but that's okay; if you can afford a shiny expensive extravagance, why not buy the best available?

Apple iPad 2: The TechSpot Review
Source: Techspot English
Apple set out to reinvent the tablet user experience and judging by the overwhelming success of the iPad, I would say they have succeeded. As incredible as today's tablets are, the truth is that we are only at the infancy of tablet computing. So where does the form factor go from here? Aside from the obvious answers of thinner, lighter and more powerful, it's anyone's guess really. We will continue to see various display sizes and connectivity options. If 3D display technology really takes off in the coming years, we could possibly see that implemented into future tablets. On the business side of things, I think something like Microsoft's Courier, a failed dual screen tablet prototype, could really spice things up. And of course, let's not forget the software, the future is all about the software.

If you fell in love with the original iPad, the iPad 2 is a significant upgrade. You get much faster hardware, a much more ergonomic device and the ability to FaceTime with your friends. If it weren't for the fact that the iPad 3 is likely 12 months away with another set of similarly impressive upgrades I'd recommend all iPad users upgrade to the 2nd generation model.

In summary, the iPad 2 is most impressive from an engineering standpoint. Slashing thickness and weight, adding a dual core processor, while still maintaining 10 hours of battery life is a frankly staggering feat. In the way Apple dominates battery life in notebooks, the company continues this tradition with tablets. iOS offers a sizable library of apps customized for the iPad, not simply scaled apps to fit the larger display.

For all the negatives, for now we think the iPad 2 is still the best tablet around. It is much better for consuming media, has more compelling apps (especially for the larger tablet size), has a better app store ecosystem, and is light and useable. Maybe the Xoom or some other Android 3.0 tablet can keep up…or maybe not.

As for which iPad 2 you should buy, it really depends on your needs. For most people, we’d recommend at least the 32-GB model ($600), which should come in handy if you plan to use the iPad for gaming, watching video or creating media. If you already own a smartphone with tethering or hotspot options (which all iPhones have now), you won’t need to plunk down extra money on an iPad 2 with 3G, so go with a Wi-Fi-only model. Those who plan to use lightweight applications — reading, web surfing and e-mail — will be fine with the 16-GB base model for $500.

Apple has built the iPad 2 by making everything that was good about the first iPad, better. If it wasn’t for the poor optics quality, I would say that this is a perfect product upgrade. Anyhow, in the current tablet context, it’s fair to say that iPad 2 is an “excellent” product. As long as you understand what it can -and cannot- do, you should be happy to own one.

Admittedly, the iPad 2 is more of an evolutionary step for Apple, akin to the jump from iPhone 3 to 3GS. If you already own an iPad then you’re not missing out too much by waiting for the next iteration before you upgrade. If you held off from buying over the last 12 months, then the iPad 2 is a brilliant reward for your patience. Get out and buy it. It's taken nearly a year since the launch of the first iPad for any manufacturers to come close to creating a tablet that can rival it. Even then, those that look promising like the Motorola Xoom run such an early OS (in Android 3.0) it will be a while before they can rival the iPad in terms of apps. With the Blackberry Playbook, HTC Flyer, LG Optimus Pad and Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 all to come, the tablet market looks really exciting over the next few months. And with its mind-blowing new build, new cameras and improvements in the engine room, coupled with the unmatched App Store/iTunes/iOS ecosystem the next-gen iPad is clearly the tablet to beat.

Should you dump your old iPad and get an Apple iPad 2? If you’re happy with your current iPad, there’s no reason to dump it just because there’s a shinier, newer one. If you’ve invested in iPad accessories such as a dock or case, you probably won’t be able to use them with the new iPad. Of course, if there’s someone in your family who has been clamouring for an iPad, now might be the time to buy an iPad 2 and hand down the old model to them. If you’ve become a major user of FaceTime or other video-chat apps, upgrading to an iPad 2 makes more sense, thanks to the cameras. People who want to bestow an iPad on an older friend or relative who is a bit reluctant to use technology can now add video chat to the mix of features that make the iPad a compelling device. Anyone who gives demonstrations of iPad apps will want to get an iPad 2 immediately just for the video-mirroring feature.

For everyone else, though, Apple has put together a superbly capable, class-shaping tablet, which can now legitimately take on not only other slates but lighter ereaders such as Amazon’s Kindle. The iPad 2 benefits from Apple’s cohesive hardware and software development together with the vast third-party developer support of the App Store, consistent and simple to use in equal measure. Apple’s vision of the post-PC world isn’t quite here yet – the iPad 2 still works best with, and at times demands, integration with a “proper” computer – but when it comes to tablets the iPad 2 maintains its position at the vanguard of the market.

An interesting optional accessory is Apple's screen covers which attach to the iPad 2 magnetically and add very little extra weight or thickness. They're designed so that the tablet automatically wakes up and goes to sleep as you flip the cover open and closed. The cover can fold back and act as a stand for use when typing on the iPad. The iPad 2 is, as we expected, a very slick and promising tablet. It's due to go on sale in the UK on March 25th, and even earlier in the US on March 11th putting pressure on rival tablet manufacturers to launch their own competing products.
