iPad 2, the new wonder from Apple, is really...wonderful! Featuring a dual-core 1 GHz processor, the tablet is available in 16, 32, or 64 GB of storage, contains a 9.7-inch screen and can run more apps than you can possibly imagine.
In addition, there are classic apps such as iMovie and GarageBand getting a new lease on life. iMovie is a non linear tool used to create video montages; the app makes it easy to create movies by adding audio, special effects and transitions. iMovie has been available for nearly every Apple computer for the past ten years, though it was completely redone and revitalized to coincide with the release of this tablet and the iPhone 4. With iPad 2, iMovie is really fast and easy to use; you can combine, move, and create videos on the fly using just your finger.
The new iPad has two great cameras and iMovie works perfectly on the multi-touch screen, produces beautiful 720p videos, and movies can be wirelessly uploaded to YouTube, Vimeo, or any other video-sharing service. The case (sold separately) was also custom manufactured to fit flawlessly over the tablet, protecting the internals while leaving access to all the plug-ins and cameras.
Whereas gameplay was limited on the first generation of the iPad due to the lack of processing power, the second generation iPad plays anything perfectly and seamlessly. With increased battery and more processing power, the games are fast, 3D parts are highly detailed and gaming is now one of the iPad's stronger features.
As an example, Dead Space HD boasts new and improved graphics, and on the iPad 2, it can compete with even the best console games. Real Racing 2 HD? Equally impressive, and if you use the HDMI adapter for the iPad 2, you will notice the quality of this racing game on a 1080p device.
