    The camera specs are a prank. Back is only like 1MP.

    dude, Its glad to see someone wake up to apple's business practice. they ipad 2 was clearly rushed into production in response to the recent Android tablets. the ipad 2 is DOA and dont be surprised to see the ipad 3 in stores by this holiday season.

    apple intentionally withholds features from their devices to inflate sales., they release "new" firmwares that do nothing but unlock hidden features our devices are already capable of. they intentionally built the ipad without any cameras so they could dupe people into buying a "next gen" ipad 2 (similar to what they did with the 3g/3gs)

    Number of MPs is one of the most meaningless specs around. It's all about how the images are processed. A 5MP camera may very well put out 8x10 images that are visually superior to an 8MP camera, because of the processing. And if you're primarily viewing these images on a small screen, it's even less important.

    Bottom line -- you just have to see the finished product when it comes to digital photography output. At least that's been my experience.

    If by clearly rushed into production you are referring to them putting it on sale a few weeks earlier than their typical yearly refreshing calendar, then yes it was rushed.

    Bad troll.

    lol

    Think I'm just going to take a shot at writing an app.
    Why would you need MyWI? All you would need is a desktop somewhere that's connected to the internet and the rdp or vnc app from the appstore.

    Nah my iPhone 3GS can playback 1080p like a charm. Video playback requires very little ram as little as 10 mb for 1080p. Ram is more important for video generation like in gaming.

    Those who are complaining about the camera the camera is better than the 5 mp or8 mp cameras unless Ur gonna zoom the picture on a high res screen. Video quality of the iPod touch cam is at the top of the list along with the iPhone 4.
    Ps:No I don't work for apple

    iPad2 smokes the competition and to talk about the damn cameras....REALLY?? Are the people on this board so out of touch with reality that they dont understand that how many gigapixels you have on your camera means NOTHING! RAM? WTF does it matter if the iPad is super quick (which all initial reports say it is).

    This is why Steve and CO are so far ahead of the competition, they realize this nonsense about spec wars is useless and all it does is it turns the market into a battle on sheets of paper. Its all about how well the product integrates into the users life and how well the product addresses the consumers experience with the product.
    SD Slots? Megapixels? I have said it over and over again, the best way to fail at a product is to base your design on the idiotic comments on tech blogs and message boards.
    The iPad 2 is not smoking the competition. You really should crawl out from underneath that Apple you have been living in. Apple is doing what they do best right now...spoon feeding you tech as they empty your wallet. I own the Xoom and my wife owns the iPad. She is hating on me right now. The Xoom is a very clean tablet with many awesome features. Don't get me wrong, I love my i4 and she loves hers too, but she is seriously considering skipping the iPad 2 and moving over to the Xoom as well.

    so i bought a 16gb wifi ipad new for $415.
    i'm selling it for $300 and paying $500 for the same model ipad2.
    which means i'm paying $200 for an upgrade to a better processor and a video camera.

    keep in mind i don't own an iphone; i currently have a prepaid-level-of-crap phone (I'm a forgetful person)
    and i don't want to sign term contracts (i'm currently waiting out my 2 year period with at&t) to get an iphone.

    so its sensible, right?

    i mean i see a lot of you talking about how its not really worth it, but it seems you spent a lottt of money on the top models and have other smart devices.
    my ipad is like a portible laptop replacement (my mpb is now a desktop and my ipad is my new laptop lol) and an e-reader (primary reason for initial interest in purchase)

    It's all about user experience, when people see Apple products they always go "Wow". There has been hardware that was faster then macs but they ran whatever-the-latest-name-MS-gave-the-new-dress-on-dos which usually made people go "huh".

    Apple has an advantage that others don't they can coordinate the hardware with the software to create the "wow" experience.
    I don't drink kool-Aid, I don't join cults.
    This is why I break out in cold sweat going to Apple retail store.

    NO, I mean rushed as in it doesn't offer much more than the current model. rushed as in its already obsolete, rushed as in the ipad 3 will be in stores this holiday season.

    I feel bad for the guy I sold it to because you know the moment he got home he tried the iPad out by going to Apple.com and saw his mistake
