A Tablet Designed for Business... And Entertainment
Business people will appreciate the optional HDMI Video Out cable ($39.00) that will connect the iPad 2 directly to an HD television or projector, making it extremely easy to give presentations using the tablet and the Keynote app (which is similar to PowerPoint). Plus, with the iOS 4.3 operating system, surfing the web using Safari becomes a significantly faster and more enjoyable experience.
When it comes to email, iPad 2 users will be able to download and view attachments in a wide range of popular file formats, granting users access to incoming graphic, word processing, spreadsheet, presentation and .PDF files, for example.
The new iPad 2 design is more comfortable to hold and interact with, plus iPad 2 is now the ideal portable entertainment device, allowing users to download and watch TV episodes or movies via iTunes, read eBooks (as well as digital newspapers or magazines) downloaded from Apple's iBookstore, and/or download and listen to music via iTunes. Thousands of games and entertainment apps are all readily available from the App Store.
As an eBook reader, the iPad 2 can access Apple's iBookstore, which starting immediately, has begun offering more than 17,000 book titles published by Random House, which joined 2,500 other publishers in offering downloadable eBooks and content for the iPad.
When it comes to enjoying audio and video content, or viewing digital photos, iPad 2 offers enhanced AirPlay features, allowing the tablet to stream content via a Wi-Fi connection to an Apple TV device that's connected to any television.
