    No surprise its 800Mhz Dual Core like i4 is 800Mhz.
    I think that had to do more with RAM than megahertz. Just like you can't keep too many web pages without a few refreshing. It's not like there weren't 800mhz android phones.
    Username is 3GS, but theres stuff past that:

    iPhone 4
    iPad
    Macbook Pro

    Does IPad 2 and 4.3 support flash? I just sold my IPad 1 on craigslist. Most of the sites my kids use are flashed based and the IPad wasn't getting used very much...

    What are you talking about? The iPad 2 doesn't live up to my expectations at all.

    They didn't even improve batter life, or include thunderbolt or USB.

    Good point since i am interested to see if there are any problems with VLC player on the iPad 2. A lot of my videos are DIVX and they play just fine on my iphone 4. Granted Air Video will convert the files too if you use it to play stuff on your tv so I guess I don't have to worry too much. Just would be nice to know so I can upload them to my iPad 2 when I get back home.

    Doesn't play 720p mkv files yet without being completely choppy. May just need the app to be updated too though.

    I watched an iPad 2 commercial parody and it said that all we have to do is make the device a little smaller, faster, and add 2 cameras....people would go crazy over it. THEIR RIGHT!!!!!

    It's all in marketing. Apple adds more stuff to their new devices so people would want a reason to buy it.

    Yeah, I was lazy and didn't feel like explaining that VLC has been pulled from the App Store... However, it doesn't play 720p mkvs smoothly in other currently provided apps such as OPlayer HD and CineXPlayer (doesn't even attempt to play them).

    You don't like the iPad because you don't have one!

    Honestly, I couldn't care less about the numbers as long as my EXPERIENCE with using the device is smooth, and I was more than satisfied with the original iPad's performance. I never bought one, but I'm about to as soon as iPad 2 supplies are replenished at Best Buy here in AZ.

    Here is my take on the RAM business with the iPad 2. I believe, but do not have really anything to back it up other than others comments, that the iPad 2 will be just fine with 512 Mb of RAM since the operating system will be built around that and will operate well enough on how the RAM and operating system interact with each other.

    Now with the other devices with 1 Gb of RAM, IMO, they may need it due to the operating systems being different along with different UIs and each having different loads on the processor and RAM included with that device. So in that instance they may need the extra RAM to compensate for that.

    Do I wish the iPad had 1 Gb of RAM, hell yeah!!!!! But can I live with the 512 Mb, Yes!

    This is just my opinion though and is subject to any ridicual anyone would like to interject here since there is still freedom of speech in the country, or so I am told at least.
