Apple iPad 2 Tablet eBook Reader Review
The iPad 2 is lighter and faster than the original.
In the Box
As well as the iPad itself, you get:
* USB cable
* 10W USB power adapter
* Basic documentation
No video or other cables are included in the package.
The iPad 2 has slightly smaller dimensions than the original iPad: it weighs slightly less (1.3lbs against 1.5lbs for the original) and is a bit thinner, at 0.88 inches thick. The original iPad was 0.51 inches thick. Even with the thinner, lighter form factor, the device is still a little hard to hold with a single hand. The iPad still doesn't come with a stand, but this time around Apple is offering specialized iPad covers that can double as a stand to tilt the screen up for viewing. We expect that a slew of other cases designed to make it easier to hold will appear over the next few months.
