Apple iPad 2 boasts a 9.7” LED-backlit IPS TFT display with a resolution of 768 x 1024 pixels. The screen is brilliant. Images look sharp and colorful on it. It also has good visibility and viewing angles. The touchscreen is impressive. It allows you to navigate through menus smoothly. The multitouch support makes it more fun to use. You can also find other features that support the display such as Scratch-resistant glass, Fingerprint-resistant oleophobic coating, Accelerometer and Gyroscope.
iOS 4 is installed in this tablet, but it can be upgraded to iOS 6.1.3 or iOS 7.0.4. The operating system is easy to use and provides smart features that can ease your job. Under the hood, there is a dual-core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 processor that works along with PowerVR SGX543MP2 GPU and 512 MB of RAM. The tablet works responsively with decent speed. There is no serious lag that can stop you from having fun with it. For the storage, it offers 16/32/64 GB built-in memory (optional). But that’s all you can get since it doesn’t include memory card slot for storage expansion. There are two cameras in this tablet. The main camera on the rear panel is equipped with 5x digital zoom and HD video recording capability (720p up to 30 frames per second with audio). The front-facing camera can be used for video calling. The iPad 2 is available in different versions: Wi-Fi only, Wi-Fi + 3G, and CDMA. You can choose one that suits better with your needs.
