Thinner. Lighter. Faster. FaceTime. Smart Covers. 10-hour Battery.
There's more to it. And even less of it.
Two cameras for FaceTime and HD video recording. The dual-core A5 chip. The same 10-hour battery life. All in a thinner, lighter design. Now iPad is even more amazing. And even less like anything else.
Dual-core A5 chip. It's fast, times two.
Two powerful cores in one A5 chip mean iPad can do twice the work at once. You'll notice the difference when you're surfing the web, watching movies, making FaceTime video calls, gaming, and going from app to app to app. Multitasking is smoother, apps load faster, and everything just works better.
Superfast graphics. Go, gamers, go.
With up to nine times the graphics performance, gameplay on iPad is even smoother and more realistic. And faster graphics help apps perform better - especially those with video. You'll see it when you're scrolling through your photo library, editing video with iMovie, and viewing animations in Keynote.
Battery life keeps on going. So you can, too.
Even with the new thinner and lighter design, iPad has the same amazing 10-hour battery life. That's enough juice for one flight across the ocean, or one movie-watching all-nighter, or a week's commute across town. The power-efficient A5 chip and iOS keep battery life from fading away, so you can get carried away.
Two cameras. And a big hello to FaceTime for iPad.
You'll see two cameras on iPad - one on the front and one on the back. They may be tiny, but they're a big deal. They're designed for FaceTime video calling, and they work together so you can talk to your favorite people and see them smile and laugh back at you.3 The front camera puts you and your friend face-to-face. Switch to the back camera during your video call to share where you are, who you're with, or what's going on around you. When you're not using FaceTime, let the back camera roll if you see something movie-worthy. It's HD, so whatever you shoot is a mini-masterpiece. And you can take wacky snapshots in Photo Booth. It's the most fun a face can have.
iPad Smart Cover. Designed for iPad. And vice versa.
iPad 2 and the iPad Smart Cover are made for each other. Literally. We designed the iPad Smart Cover to work side-by-side with iPad - and on top and underneath it, too. Smart magnetic technology built into each really pulls them together. The iPad Smart Cover falls perfectly into place and stays put to protect your iPad screen, yet doesn't add bulk to its thin, light design. Open the Smart Cover and your iPad wakes up instantly. Close it and your iPad goes to sleep automatically. And here's another smart part: It transforms into the perfect movie-watching, game-playing, web-surfing stand. It comes in 10 bright colors - including five in rich, aniline-dyed Italian leather. Choose your favorite, and your iPad will be smart all around.
LED-backlit display. The view is amazing.
iPad is one big, beautiful display - 9.7 inches of high-resolution photos, movies, web pages, books, and more. LED backlighting makes everything you see remarkably crisp, vivid, and bright. Even in places with low light, like an airplane. And there's no wrong way to hold iPad. It's designed to show off everything in portrait and landscape, so with every turn (even upside down), the display adjusts to fit. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178Â° viewing angle. Hold it up to someone across the room, or share it with someone sitting next to you, and everyone gets a brilliant view.
Multi-Touch. Everything's at your fingertips.
Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural, almost like there's no technology at all. That's Multi-Touch on iPad. You use your fingers to do everything, so everything you do - surfing the web, typing email, reading books, and swiping through photos - is easier and a lot more fun. How does it work? When your fingers touch the display, it senses them using electrical fields. Then it instantly transforms your taps, swipes, pinches, and flicks into lifelike actions. Just like that.

Speedy shipping 4/18/2013
Frank from Sierra Vista, AZ
Product was received faster than I have normaly received from other vendors taking account the free shipping. An excellent item at a very good price. Would buy from this vendor again.
Not previously owning an iPad I did not know what to expect purchasing the iPad 2. After using it for weeks though, I can honestly say it is perfect and has no problems that I can comment on. After purchasing a wireless keyboard, I plan on completely replacing the computer with this tablet. Netflix and other amenities are great as well. I would get black though, I see the white becoming faded and not as clean looking after a while.

Great Price, Great Product 8/30/2012
Brian from Raleigh, NC
When I saw that I could have a new iPad2 for the price of some refurbished ones - I knew I had to jump on that deal. I had tried to purchase an iPad from different vendors, but they always sent an excuse of why I wasn't going to receive my product. DSA came through and I had the iPad in my hands a very short amount of time later.
Highly recommend using this vendor.

I just got it 2 weeks ago. Apple's iPad 2 is dramatically thinner and boasts front and rear cameras, FaceTime video chat, a faster processor.

Be patient 3/1/2012
Jafu from Kingston, NY
I have one of these and I enjoy it a lot. This price drop is very small and only the beginning. If you can exhibit a little patience the price will fall like a stone over the next six months or so. But whatever you decide this tablet is a clear winner.
alex from new york
i like it ,best for my use .
Best one 2/15/2012
jay z from NY
This is best thing ever . Its just like an ipod touch but the screen is alot bigger, its faster and u could do the data plan for it . I would say if a person gets this ipad they wouldnt need to get an laptop cuz this is like a touchscreen laptop. This is better than a lapotp.
Love it! 12/1/2011
I bought the Ipad 2 as an early family christmas present. We looked at lots of other tablets and for what we wanted to use it for the ipad was our top choice. It is very easy to use and there are a ton of free apps for it. The only bad thing I can say about it is that the screen is actual glass and can break easily. The day after we recieved it, our daughter dropped it and the whole screen cracked - not covered under the warranty. We looked online and apparently breaking the screen is a common thing with these. Alot of people stated they barely dropped theirs and the screen broke. We ended up taking it to an apple store and had to pay more $$ to get a replacement ipad. Now we are very nervous about the screen breaking again.
Great quality for a good price 11/26/2011
I will admit that the cameras on the iPad 2 are not the greatest but I have to admit that the iPad 2 is so much faster and thinner than the first generation. The iPad 2 is FAST. Apps open instantaneously and it is a sleek machine. I have a hard time putting it down. I realize that the iPad 3 will probably have some major upgrades but if you have waited for the iPad 2 just get one and enjoy it. It is the best tablet out there!
Where the iPad falls short is in the area of productivity. Much discussed, and a sore point, is the lack of a USB port. In todays day and age, that is almost an unforgivable sin. I did get the hook up so I could download my pictures (it works too - and, again, it does it so fast and so effortlessly that it is a minor miracle). There is something almost childish in the decision not to include at least one USB port especially after the loud fracas that happened after the release of the first iPad. FLASH is another sore point and, frankly, one that I don't understand. There is some conflict going on with the world of APPLE and flash so we don't have it. This makes it very difficult to surf the web. Safari is quick but without flash, it misses one of its major components. Again, and this is just my feeling, this is something that could have been corrected quite easily - starting a year ago with the original. Now, the iPad 2 (and the original version, I'm sure) can still do quite an amazing amount of work without these two features but as they are considered standard, it is a puzzle as to why the iPad 2 did not have both of them installed. Also, the lack of a port decreases the iPad's place in the workforce.
Also the coupon and the 6x points made the deal even sweeter for me.

Best tablet there is! 9/17/2011
Anthony from Illinois
The iPad 2 is crazy fast and responsive, you touch something and it loads right away. There's never a time I feel the iPad is sluggish or that I'm waiting to long for something to happen, everything just works. You don't need to fiddle with settings you just plug and go. The available apps are the whole reason you would choose an iPad. If you enjoy playing games for instance it has the best games you can get out of the tablets. In terms of exclusive apps this has all of them whereas other tablets don't have any exclusive games. Even if you don't game I enjoy using Garageband to work on basic melodies while I'm out of the house. If you're thinking about getting a tablet I would highly recommend an iPad. It doesn't crash, the battery lasts 10 hours, free iCloud storage coming for your files, wireless syncing, and exclusive apps make this the easiest choice!
