The memory of the public is pretty weak and that is evident each time a new device with all the new technology incorporation is released in the market. The seem to forget the predecessor almost instantaneously, no matter how long they have been fans of the same. It just becomes an obsolete piece of junk for them. Well, the creators of these devices still treasure them and they do try their best to do something for the once glorified devices that they had created, but are now being treated as old and incompetent. A clear example of this is the Apple iPad 2 that has been in the limelight till it was shown the door by its own successor, that is the New iPad, which is the third generation of the iPad. The iPad2 receives battery update and no one is really talking about it, because they are busy cheering the New iPad.
While the iPad is fading out of the minds of the people, the creators of this little wonder are doing their bit and they have actually updated this device with a new and improved battery which has clearly enhanced the efficiency of this tablet PC.
The company has slashed the prices of this tablet, in the recent past, and that was a clear indication, that there was something new that was ready to be launched.
What people did not really know was that the company had made certain amendments with respect to the hardware of the iPad2 and it is now functioning better than ever. The best part is that this little enhancement may actually make the iPad2 a much better choice that its own successor.
People have been invading shops in a bit a bid to lay their hands on the New iPad and there have been long lines of people just waiting for shops to open, the day the New iPad was made available in the markets. Also, as the prices of the iPad2 have been slashed and the WiFi version of the same with a memory capacity of 16GB is now available for Rs.24,500. In case you go in for the WiFi and 3G version of the iPad2 then you will have to dish out a sum of Rs.32900 for the 16GB model.
The iPad2 with the lower prices have been given a new epithet, not by Apple but by the online stores that are selling them and they are now called the iPad2.4 as these ones are different from the ones that were first introduced by the company and their rates have been slashed, as well.
Here is a list of the features and specification of the iPad 2.4, as it is being called by some online retail stores.
Other features remain the same, and that is good enough. You can only imagine what these 2 extra hours of power back up mean and that too for a tablet that has had its rates slashed.
Now, the question arises about the identification of this iPad 2.4. Does it look any different from the original iPad2? The answer is, no. Both the tablets have an identical appearance. In such a case, how will you differentiate between the two? Well, you will get to know that, when you actually use the tablet.
The original iPad2 is running on the iOS 5 and that is the latest operating system from the house of Apple. Well, not anymore as the iPad 2.4 actually runs on the iOS 5.1 which means that there are certain changes and enhancements, which are miniscule that have been made to the iOS. So the only way to get to know which iPad you are holding is by actually using it.
The New iPad has created waves, like all the other Apple products, and that was expected. But, what remains to be seen is whether the iPad2.4 turns out to be a better monarch than it’s younger brother. The iPad receives battery update is a clear indication that Apple will not let its products be lost in the light of the new ones that have been launched by them.
