Apple has always been able to keep tablet fanatics at the edge of their chairs with its world-renowned ‘June releases’. After many months of speculations and heated rumors, the new iPad hit the market with such a force that the tablet’s contenders felt threatened.
Well, it is a great piece of its kind but the discounted iPad 2 is also a big technological beast, so to say.
People have big confusion to decide IPad Or IPad 2.
Personally, I do not have clear raw facts why I should settle for one here and not the other one because after rounding up some facts, I found their similarities and differences indistinguishable. From weight, battery life, Wi-Fi experience, display, and so forth.
A Comprehensive Raw Comparison Of The iPad And The iPad 2
Visual display – Perhaps this is the most observable difference between the two tablets. The original iPad display has been upped to significant levels with a resolution display of 2048 by 1536 that comes with 236 pixels in every inch of the screen, as compared to that of the iPad 2 that has inherited 1024 by 768-backlit LED display.
While the two tablets come with 9.7-inch displays, users can only expect better quality, clear and vivid displays from the new version.
Graphics – The two tablets incorporated the imagination-technologies power-VR SGX based chips for graphics, but this has been improved in the new iPad. T
his is also the technology in the iPhone 4 and in the latest release of smartphones, the whopping iPhone 5. Well, the graphic experience with these two is almost hard to distinguish but with the dual-core Apple A5X processor in the newer version, it only gets better.
Apple has reckoned this graphic design as being twice faster as compared to the Nvidia’s Tegra 3 and so to say, the graphic performance is fourfold. If you are that individual in the graphical field, whether for business or for studies, then you will not look for any better piece than the iPad.
Memory capability- the original version comes with the incorporation of 16 GB, 32GB, or 64GB memories that are flash storage manufactured by Toshiba. The iPad 2 is packaged with a 512MB internal memory and for this reason; users in business transactions via tablets have a good reason to settle for the original version.
Cameras’ comparison- the two tablets have a similarity here in that they come with front-facing VGA cameras, but the iSight cameras at the back differ as 5MP and 0.7 MP rear in the iPad and iPad 2 models respectively.
Again, concerning video recording, the former is much better with a 1080 p recording as compared to 720 p in the latter.
Weight and size – The two tablets possess some notable differences here. With the iPad 2 being precisely 8.8mm, one can easily notice the difference with the 13.4mm in the original model.
About The Business Features In The iPad And iPad 2
Believe it or not, most likely, the new features and applications for business that you will find in the iPad 2 should have been in the iPad from the word go.
A good piece of advice would be to see how you feel and if you can spare to fork out more money for the iPad 2, then go get it. If not, just stick with the first version of this tablet and you will still enjoy great business features.
