Apple iPad vs. iPad 2: What has changed?

The Apple iPad 2 boasts an all new design that is 33 percent thinner (from 13.4mm to 8.8mm) and is up to 15 percent lighter than its precursor, while the brilliant 9.7" LED-backlit LCD screen remained unchanged. For stunning graphics and lightning fast performance, the iPad 2 is incorporated with Apple's new dual-core A5 processor. You also have two cameras built in it, one a front facing VGA camera meant for FaceTime and Photo Booth, second backward facing camera for capturing 720p HD video and here you have the 'FaceTime' feature, perhaps for the first time. Though it is lighter, thinner, faster and power packed with new features, Apple iPad 2 still does not fail to deliver up to 10 hours of battery life and that is something you will always expect as a user. The integration of iPad 2 Smart Cover in a wide range of rich leather colours and vibrant polyurethane is another smart addition.
