I never really used one prior to today, so a comparison I can't make. That being said.....I Love It! I spent about an hour going through it and downloading some apps. I'll end up setting it up close to the way my phone is, as far as apps, shortcuts & bookmarks go. After using my iPhone 4 I do however wish it had a little better resolution, but it's not that big of a deal.

Engadget just posted an article about the iFixit tear down, they did confirm the 512mb of RAM.

And from personal use, I can tell you it's blazingly fast.

Tell us what you think about you're new iPad 2 here!

Did you have the original iPad? How do they compare?

How long did you have to wait in line/how far into the line were you/which model did you get



I am sooo excited to finally have it! In my own opinion, this iPad blows the original iPad out of the water. To me, it's just so much more comfortable to hold and its sooo fast! Noticeably fast!


I went to Columbus, Ohio (about 2 hours away) and I got there at 12:30pm and was about the 15th person in line. By the time 5 rolled around there was probably close to 200 people if not more in line!!!!!!!

Needless to say, I'm excited I made the decision to go there and wait for a few hours

That must have been pretty boring waiting at Target for 6 hours with only 4 other folks in line! Kinda run out of conversation real fast.

Are you saying your Target ONLY had 5 64gig WiFi's...or did they have other models as well?

Thanks,

That's the first time I have ever waited in line for everything and now I see why it is so important to be early!

Actually 2 managers & the electronics associate were BS'in with us the whole time and surprisingly the time flew by. And yes that particular Target only had 5 64GB units, NO others at all. Only 3 Targets in the Tampa area had any at all so I considered myself lucky. Back on the "review" subject, I am VERY impressed with the battery life. I used it for about an hour an a half last night, and my kids have literally been on it ALL day today. They are watching a Netflix movie so it only has a few % left, but man that's a great battery.

So I posted earlier about how great the battery is. Well it's been charging for 5 hours now and it's only at 70%. Is it normal to take so long? My iPhone charges really fast and even my MacBook Pro charges faster than that.

Yep, my local Target only had 5 as well. But I showed up after the 5p launch, so I wasn't expecting to see them there anyways.
