The New Apple iPad 2 is thinner than the original iPad, with a faster processor, dual cameras, and FaceTime video chat. The Wi-Fi only model for 16GB, 32GB, and for 64GB, the weight of the iPad 2 varies slightly with each model. The heaviest model by a hair is the AT&T Wi-Fi + 3G iPad, at 1.35 pounds. The 9.7-inch LED-backlit multitouch-enabled display remains unchanged from the first iPad, in terms of size and 1,024-by-768 resolution. As for controls and hardware, the front panel houses the new-to-this-model front-facing VGA-quality camera lens and the old, familiar Apple Home button, which sits, as usual, below the screen. Included with the iPad 2: a standard-issue Apple white sync cable and a charger, and that's pretty much it. The 3G radio for the iPad delivers solid speed that's in line with other Verizon 3G devices. The iPad 2 can connect to 802.11b/g/n wireless networks and integrates Bluetooth 2.1 + EDR. You can easily connect a wireless keyboard to the iPad, but wireless mice aren't supported this was also the case with the original iPad. Apple made no such promises at the launch for the iPad 2.
The iPad 2 runs iOS 4.3, an incrementally updated version of Apple's mobile operating system. For example, you can now shoot video on your iPad and immediately send it to your Apple TV to view on an HDTV. If you go to Vimeo's site and play a video on your iPad, tapping the AirPlay icon superimposed on the video will immediately start streaming it to your Apple TV on the same Wi-Fi network. It's pretty seamless integration between not only your iPad and Apple TV, if you have one, but also Safari, third-party sites, and AirPlay.
The new apple iPad 2 ships with the usual suspects: Calendar, Contacts, Notes, Maps, Videos, YouTube, iTunes, App Store,
