iPad2 (or iPad1, service pack 1)
So the iPad2 has been out for a while, however having an iPad1 kicking around at home I didn’t see the point.
However recently the Asus Transformer had to go back to work. I took the plunge and updated the iPad to iOS5. To be honest I didn;t really find that much difference other than the iPad now ran like a pig.
After doing some reading online I found I wasn’t the only one. I mean, it still works – but it’s just that little bit sluggish.
Then someone else at work needed an iPad – so I lost that one too.
Fast forward to yesterday afternoon, and in my hot little hands was an iPad2. Seeing as I had already played with iOS5, there wasn’t any huge surprises, however the faster processor and graphics certainly shine through on this new device. I even started trialling some games which run fantastic (go try Real Racing 2 HD!).
Media:Connect/Flex:Player also behave significantly better.
So nutshell version, it’s nothing overly exciting. Simply more of the same, but much better.
