osman khan, 04 Mar 2011ipad 2 is a disappointment for me as no "revolutionary" change has been made to it.
... moreLol Osman then you might be interested to read that Samsung themselves said the iPad 2 will be very challenging to beat, and now have to make changes to their 10 inch tablet after seeing the iPad 2 launch.
Stop spouting rubbish.
Im not a supporter of apple products, but i always go for practicality. Other android tablets may spot cameras with HD capability but who uses a tablet for recording vids? At least, it's very affordable at 500 bucks. I only want it for casual browsing, ebooks, and reading/presentation powerpoint slides.

The competitors of Apple are all at least 24 months behind, given that Apple released the original iPad in March last year. Apple have clearly innovated this industry and all the competitors are playing catch-up.
No one is able match Apple's form factor and length of operation. Sure the iPad and iPad2 don't have the extreme bells and whistles, but at the end of the day Apple are clearly ahead of the pack.
The iPad 2 is a fail as far as I am concerned. No USB slot. No SD/microSD slot. No flash support. The rear camera is a joke. Only 0.7 mp. This device, like the Steve Jobs keynote address at the launch is a joke. Apple as usual, still behind the times and still trying to catch up. And not doing a very good job at it. Perhaps the people at Apple need to pull their finger out and come up with a better device. Also like all Apple/Mac products overpriced to hell.
you can't sell just with your name.
i was gonna buy ipad2 but it seems my expectations was very high for this..or the expectation that apple created..
don't know what to choose now..i'm between playbook and galaxy tab.any suggestions?
I have an iPad wi-fi + 3G model. I'm still hesitant to upgrade to 2nd gen. due to the following reasons:
1. still has no flash support
2. poor camera
3. still the lowest ram among other tablets (512mb vs. 1GB)
4. bluetooth capability is compatible with apple devices only
twice as fast and 9 times better graphics than iPad... that's something..here's a hands-on video http://goo.gl/fb/mKKM8
osman khan, 04 Mar 2011ipad 2 is a disappointment for me as no "revolutionary" change has been made to it. ... moreOk right but should I buy the galaxy s2 with 4.3 screen with same specification and the screen it's more than enough! Why I have to 10.1screen with samsung tab?! I bit you if samsung tab fincationl smoothly and fast like iPad2.

Optimus Pad's 3D requires glasses unlike the 3D phone...which is no special feat, any display can do 3D if glasses are worn. There are ghetto 3D camera apps for the iPhone that require glasses too.
Honestly it depends on what the other tabs will end up costing. Samsung says it will reduce the price strategy of their tablets. iPads are relatively cheap to the competition and does what it needs to quite well.
Seems like a lot of haters for this product. But let's face it normal people won't use this to take pictures so it does not matter how much megapixel you have on it.
At any rate, apple still rules this segment with a commanding 90% share.
"Tablet with no support for GSM voice communication, SMS, and MMS" but why he is there? this is not a phone lol... gsm arena?
When it comes to tablets, it's not about the specs.. It's about user experience. It's about the way we use the device and how the device fits itself to the way we want to use it.. That's why Apple products always win the consumer's heart :)
ipad 2 is a disappointment for me as no "revolutionary" change has been made to it.
rear camera with no flash no auto focus n only for video recording or used rather only 4 (useless) facetime.
If compared to samsung's tab 10.1 it has rear camera of 8mp autofocus led flash which can record n playback in 1080p n even click still photos n front camera of 2mp n 2 surround sound speakers n much more all of it with only difference of 1.5 mm in thickness.....
i think the "copycats" has done it better than the one who rediscovered this category.
well done samsung ur hardwork n advanced technology forced me to change my opinion.
