Move over Ipad, because the Ipad 2 is here now. This next generation of the popular hand-held device lets users read their favorite books or watch popular television shows and movies at the touch of a button (or in this case, icons on the screen), and you can even play all kinds of fun games just like you would on your home computer or laptop. What is better about using an Ipad or Ipad 2 for these applications is that this is an extremely portable piece of technology, even more convenient to carry around than a laptop.
Surfing the Net
If you have one of these great little hand held devices, you can do a lot of the things you would normally be doing with your regular computer. If you need to look up information on the internet, you can do it with an Ipad 2. The lithium battery can last as long as 10 hours before it needs to be recharged, and if you have an extra battery with you, you will never run out of battery time, so you can always use your Ipad, day or night, and never have to worry about running out of battery time.
Features of the This Latest Device
There are some features of this newer version of the Ipad that the original version does not have. One of these features is the ability to take photographs and videos. In fact, this newer version has two cameras, one in the front, and one in the back. There are also some new applications with the Ipad 2: iMovie and GarageBand, which for a small price, will allow you to use this device to edit videos and music without the need for a larger computer.
This new model lets users surf the internet faster than they could with the original version of the Ipad, and now offers iTunes Home Sharing, which wasn't available previously for users. You will even be able to mirror your iPad screen on an HDTV. The new Smart Cover not only protects your Ipad, but it also acts as a stand, so you use it at your desk or anywhere else you want to.
The Long Wait Is Now Over
If you have been anxiously awaiting the release of the latest version of the Ipad, you don't have to wait any longer. The Ipad 2 was unveiled to the world on March 2, 2011, and it was available for sale on March 11 in many retail stores across America, and released to 25 other countries on March 25. Apple has announced that the new Ipad 2 is going to be available in Hong Kong, South Korea and Singapore, along with many other countries, in April 2011.
