Today is the day some people have been waiting for in the UK. Apple are releasing the upgrade to the iPad, iPad 2. With Smart Covers, faster processor and (poor) cameras Apple’s upgrade is also thinner than before and prices start at £399. People have already been reportedly queuing overnight and the pre-orders on Apples site only recently went live with a expected ship date of 2-3weeks.
The iPad2 wasn’t the upgrade many were hoping however with a rather low amount of RAM, 512mb, compared to other tablets. Also the iPad only features a rear camera with a sensor resolution of just 0.7mp, yes 0.7mp isn’t a typo, meaning it is the worlds first device that captures images at a resolution lower than the devices screen! Talking of screens many wanted to see a retina update to iPad 2 but sadly it didnt achieve that and the screen is no different from iPad 1.
So will you be getting iPad 2? We certainly won’t be!
