Early reviews for the iPad 2 look good so far. Some of the usual suspect sort of A-list sites who got their hands on the iPad 2 early have started publishing their thoughts on it, and they are mostly favorable. As expected they are not finding the finding this to be a revolutionary step up from the original, but a welcome and substantial improvement on it nonetheless.
One of the most interesting details to emerge in review by Engadget and MacWorld is that the iPad 2 has 512MB of RAM. While I’m glad to see the RAM is double that of the original iPad, I’m a little disappointed that we didn’t get 1GB. I guess that’s another step-up that will await the iPad 3.
I was happy to see that Engagdet says the battery life is still tremendous in their testing of the iPad 2.
What do you all think of the bump-up to 512MB of RAM?
