The impact of iPad® 2 on the tablet market

After attaining stupendous success with iPad, a gadget that was a turning point in the field of technology, Apple recently launched its second generation iPad. In a recent poll conducted by a website on the future of iPad 2, about 46% of the respondents felt that Apple would continue to dominate the market with the new version, while about 33% felt that it would spur the other tablet makers to innovate. Around 9% felt that it changed nothing and Apple was just catching up with other players. About 8% said that a better and cheaper tablet could win it all at a later stage.

Featuring a 1GHz dual-core A5 chip and cameras on both sides of the device, iPad 2 also has a CPU twice as fast as the previous model. Its graphics performance is said to be nine times quicker, whereas power needs have been kept the same as the iPad. Battery life, along with the pricing, has been unchanged. The price starts from $499 for a 16 GB Wi-Fi only iPad 2 and goes up to $829 for Wi-Fi with 3G SKU and 64 GB of storage. The new tablet would come with a HDMI output capable of 1080p that would set you back by $39 for the necessary dongle, which is recognized as an Apple Digital AV adapter; however, there wouldn’t be any rumblings of Thunderbolt connectivity in this case. As expected, what you would get is an enlarged speaker grille on its back, and the same 1024 x 768 resolution and IPS LCD screen technology like in the original iPad.

In iPad 2, 720p video recording at 30 fps would be on tap from the rear facing camera, which could too present a 5x digital zoom if you are interested in that sort of a thing, whereas the front-facing imager would record at a VGA resolution, at 30 fps.

Compared to its predecessor, at 8.8 mm, the device is almost 33 per cent thinner, and also lighter at around 600 grams. It would be available on both Verizon and AT&T, and you would get the option of choosing between white and black. So while it is missing some features that users have grown used to by now in the original iPad, the next generation of the market defining Apple iPad is still very impressive.
