Why You Should Wait For iPad 2
The rumor says that APple iPad 2 will release somewhere between February – April 2011. Founder of Digg, Kevin Rose, also jumped into the rumor with his state: “I have it on good authority that Apple will be announcing the iPad 2 in the next 3-4 weeks, possibly Tuesday February 1st. The iPad 2 will feature a retina display and front/back cameras.”. Even it is still in debate, we need to know what reasons to hold to buy iPad now and wait for the next generation of this a blazing fast speed and elegance device.
Resons why you would wait for Apple iPad 2:
1. Back Camera
The first generation of iPad, there is no Camera available yet. But if you pay attention to iPhone/iPad’s SDK, there’s an interface for a camera already implemented. In the Contacts application found in the kit’s emulator, for example, you can tap the “Add Photo” button to add a picture to go along with the contact information. After doing so, a pop-up appears asking if you would like to “take photo” or “choose existing photo”. The iPhone/iPad’s SDK is ready for the camera, but the hardware is not yet.
2. Retina Display or Higher dpi Display
iPhone 4s have the latest and cutting edge display technology so called “Retina display”, so why iPad doesn’t have the same technology yet? But this is still a rumor i got from the net, so we’ll see until Apple release the official announcement.
3. Voice Chat
With Camera available, then it’s high possibilities that iPad capable with video chat or video call, like we are doing with skype or another mesenger.
4. Multitasking ability with iOS 4.2
It is high possibilities that the next generation iPad or iPad 2 will be delivered with iOS 4.2 which already support multitasking. So you can be more productive as you work, have more fun as you play, or do a little of both. Everything happens smoothly and efficiently — without slowing down the performance of the foreground app or draining the battery unnecessarily.
So with that reasons, is holding out for the next generation iPad is worthy for you? You choose.
