The camera is unbelievable poor, I don't want to see how it perfoms on low-light conditions... There's high noise even with such good lighting.
Also, the picture resolution is lower than the display, what will make all pictures look poor even on the iPad screen...
Even if it's a tablet, I see no reason to put such a poor camera on this thing, I would be embarassed using this camera.
tablets is still just an option. Better get those well-equipped mobile phones.

What are you.. like 12 years old or something? I think it's more like Steve Jobs is saying "take that you appleheads" and laughing all the way to the bank...
So after reading this review......
Apple has NOT "done it again"
The only thing Honeycomb is missing is the # of apps for tablets. And Apple didn't create more apps for iPad2, over iPad1. With that logic, iPad1 is better than current market tablets.
Apple didn't "do it again". --- As if the Android market will not grow.
I think Ipad and Ipad2 are great devices... But... Not everyone needs it... A year ago when Apple relesead Ipad people were against it just like people were against mobilephones. But today mobile phones are reaching tablet size (GS2) and people love that. IF you dont like Apple you can respect people who do and think again. AFter 1 year of work there is STILL no competition even thou many tried and failed to launch a competitive device...
I'm wondering..... does it have 900Mhz dual core or 1ghz dual core?
because as in here:
it stated ipad2 uses 900Mhz dual-core Cortex-A9 processor.
Its pretty much the same story and it reads like this:
The usual annual absolute minimum upgrade from Apple,not much change or innovation.
Trend/fashion followers and easily lead people gobble it coughing up their cash.
Steve jobs laughs at them and rolls around in their cash yet again.
When will this horror story end? Will people ever see the light and realise this?
Thanks god for those in awareness better alternatives are becoming available in June as gsmarena pointed out.

Good lord.. Go buy yourself a 100 dollar Chinese tablet instead..
3G model uses micro-SIM, instead of a regular size SIM
iPhone apps designed for HVGA resolution squander screen real estate or look pretty bad uspcaled
Ipad2 / GsmArena = Makes no sense...
I thought this was a mobile phone site...?
Soon they will be reviewing MacBook as well and comparing it to 100 dollar Nokia phones...
What happened to GSMarena.. used to be an objective mobile phone site.. has now turned into Apples right hand...
I want my freaking ipad2 it's sold out every where, even if they have it it get sold also immediately.

"Apple that seems to be a step ahead of the competition so far. Like it or not, Apple has done it again"
now, take that Fandroids!
I wonder if this site will become biased as the rest of the blogs around the web.
