So today is the day the ipad 2 gets it’s little event over in san francisco. Jobs is there to gloat over how little the copy cat tablets are catching up to the first ipad. And now the ipad 2 with it’s A5 1GHZ dual core processor is twice as fast on cpu performance and upto 9 times faster graphics, how’s do you like them apples! All this plus the same battery performance as the previous A4 chip.
Here in the Uk we can see a 25th march release apparently, won’t that be nice, yeah like we can afford one.
This ipad will ship with IOS4.3 which has improvements for safari and itunes home sharing features. The screen is a nice 9.7-inch (diagonal) LED-backlit Multi-Touch display with 1024×768-pixel resolution at 132 pixels per inch (ppi), an Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating. very nice. The back camera can do a sweet 30fps 720 recording, which is kinda standard minimum these days, but defo good to have 🙂
As will be shown in a future post by Dibbs Ahoy, imovie on the iphone can create some really good results, so how good can an ipad 2 version be. well at $4.99 fo 11 march our US friends can find out, but we’re expecting it to be gooood. I mean the ipad is a product for consumers, and imovie is no final cut or after effects. But imovie can do great things in the right hands, of course if the star is yours truely how could it not be good, i joke.
oh did we mention the ipad 2 is 33% thinner and a little bit lighter, not just in colour (also in white) but in weight by 0.2 pounds. Theres also hdmi for video out and some smart cover that can be adapted to prop it up, wake it up, put it to sleep and more.
