PREVIEW: iPad2 – What To Expect

ipad2With rumours of the imminent launch of Apple’s iPad-2 in San Francisco gaining momentum, many potential users cannot wait to find out if their expectations of ‘the most eagerly awaited technology gadget of the year’ will be met. Since the launch of the iPad, there has been a noticeable increase in the number of rival gadgets and similar tablet computers available to consumers in the market. Thus, in order to regain its number one spot in the mind of many users, the iPad-2 is expected to differ significantly from its predecessor and indeed, other popular tablets.

So, what can consumers expect? The iPad-2 is expected to be between 7-inch and 9.7-inch in size, lighter and slimmer, with improved screen resolution and a camera each on both ends. Also, the heavier aluminium shell is expected to be replaced with a carbon fibre version thus resulting in its lighter weight. Analysts expect the iPad-2 presentation to be made by Apple’s Tim Cook as Steve Jobs is currently on medical leave. However, no official announcements have been made yet and while its price has not been fixed, one can only hope that it will be affordable for buyers in the United States, Europe and Asia when it finally goes on sale.

Talking Point

Considering the current competition in the tablet market, do you expect the iPad-2 to be as successful as its predecessor which sold almost 15 million units in 2010?

    I read today that Apple will launch iPad 2 on March 2. If this is true i don’t understand why they not made a public announcement about that. However, Apple fans will buy this product anyway.

    I am one of those people who are waiting on the release of the iPad 2. My wife has an iPad and I love using it. I too hope it is affordable for buyers in the United States because depending on how expensive it is I am going to get it as soon as it is released. Thanks for the update.

    I dont think iPad 2 is going to be successful as iPad 1 in number of sales because because there is lots of competition in the market today. But I trust Apple the new iPad 2 is going to be loaded with lots of new features. Looking forward for it.
