The original iPad was a technology game changer that damaged nearly everything in its path and now that the iPad 2 possesses stronger specs and better features, it’s primed to destroy or severely hurt the following gadgets.
Portable Gaming Systems
Nintendo 3DS and Sony NGP, move aside; the iPad 2 is likely one of the most underrated gaming devices on the market. With the new gyroscope, doubled RAM and processor, cameras, and the updated graphics card – that’ll go up to 9 times faster than its predecessor – the iPad 2 will likely steal a lot of thunder from portable gaming manufacturer’s as consumers opt for a gaming system that does more than just gaming.
I thought that the original iPad killed the netbook, but several of them are still finding shelter in retail stores – that was until the iPad 2 was launched. The average netbook has half the processor and graphics power that Apple’s second generation tablet has, and they weigh more, have less battery life, and aren’t as functional as the new iPad is – and when you look at the price of Apple’s new tablet, you know that netbooks won’t be able to avoid death for too much longer.
The E-Ink eBook reader is dead, but there has been a resurgence of tablet like eBook readers that offer better screens and a few more basic functions than original eBook readers [web, calculators, book store, 3G internet, games, etc.] – and the iPad 2 will make minced meat out of them. Although modern eBook readers try their best to look like tablets, they still lack the speed and actual hardware needed to escape extinction due to the iPad 2.
Most of the Competition
The first generation iPad faced a bit of competition, but pretty much crushed every first generation tablet that tried to take the number one spot and although the iPad 2 faces stronger competition than the first version, it’ll still smash any tablet that comes close to eat. Most modern day tablets offer better specs than the iPad 2, but the new iPad is more than hardware, it combines a convenient interface, super-fast speed, and the best software on the market – that is sure to give all modern day tablets a run for their money.
