Enterprise Mobility: Apple's iPad 2 Raises the Bar on Competitors
Lighter and Thinner, for Same Price
Apples iPad 2 is substantially lighter than the original, but has similar battery life and costs the same as the first iPad, with WiFi only models starting at $499.
Smart Cover for iPad 2
The iPad 2s Smart Cover is magnetically attached to the iPad itself. The device can be configured to wake when the cover is opened or going to sleep when closed.
iPad 2's Rear Camera
This view of the iPad 2 shows off the rear-facing camera, which can capture 720p video at 30fps; for stills, its not nearly as good as the corresponding camera in the iPhone 4.
Larger Speaker Grille
The built-in speaker of the iPad 2 sits behind a grille thats substantially larger than the speaker grille of the original.
The iPad 2s SIM card tray is ejected when the SIM extraction tool is inserted into the device; at the angle shown here, the SIM card will fall out of the tray when the tray is removed.
Smart Cover Is Versatile
The iPad 2s Smart Cover can be folded to act as a low-angle support for typing, or a high-angle, easel-like support.
FaceTime Video Conferencing
The iPad 2s built-in cameras can be used for videoconferencing through Apples FaceTime service, which debuted last year with the iPhone 4.
Digital Output for iPad, iPhone
The Apple Digital AV Adapter allows output of up to 1080p from the iPad 2 to devices that support HDCP content protection.
