IPAD 2 - Hands on and Comparisons

submitted on March 2, 2011 by orangearrows in "Products / Gadgets"
Seems thinner and faster but the screen resolution required a bump.

* This thing is insanely fast. We're not joking -- it's blazingly fast. Everything the iPad 2 does feels like it's on turbo. We're uploading a video of the some evidence of this, you'll be appropriately stunned.
* The design feels great in your hands. Sleek, super thin -- much nicer to hold than the previous version. Definitely has more of a magazine than book feel. Everything is tight and solid. It is pretty amazing how thin they've gotten the device.
* Even software made for the first generation device feels better here. Safari is definitely sped up. Games looked great on-screen, though obviously there are no updates to the resolution of screen technology here.
* This is an evolutionary step, but we definitely don't feel like it's lacking for features. People are going to gobble these up when they see the new apps.

    Note how Apple stock rose 2.11% today and Motorola's stock went down by 5.64%

    I like Motorola's ZOOM but I think it is overpriced for what it has to offer to the end user. Android based tablet doesn't stand a chance against iPad considering the number of apps in the marketplace. ZOOM's pricing should be more aggressive

      Was expected - MOTO was acting snobbish with the XOOM. They should have flooded the market with deal for XOOM. They should have made sure whoever was out there for a tablet bought a XOOM. Instead they kept prices high and dealt with only select partners ( VZ) - now with the IPAD 2 out - they don't have a chance of selling much. XOOM will just fade away ---very soon.

    In response to psplove's comment regarding the iPad 3... I just have to share one of my favorite comics from The Oatmeal...CAUTION...the last bit of the comic has a bit of naughty language.
