With iPad 2, FaceTime becomes a reality with the introduction of the dual cameras. FaceTime is a software integrated in iOS devices like iPhone 4, iPod Touch (4th Generation) and of course iPad 2. Using FaceTime on the iPad is very intuitive, as you can call a Mac or another iOS device with FaceTime active and running on a Wi-Fi network.
Utilizing both Wi-Fi and 3G networks, free video calls can be made to anyone, anywhere in the world. The sound and picture are phenomenal, even with a screen protector. Although the camera is not the best camera, it does shoot video at 1080p HD.
When the original iPad appeared, there was very little competition and Apple was able to utilize the momentum that it had built up with their music players and phones. Now, the new iPad is filled to capacity with features and impressive specs to compete with the ever-growing line of tablets that are flooding the market. This new generation of iPad has enough new options and features to position itself as one of the winners in the growing tablet competition.
