iPad 2 - full review

Engadget have published a full review of the iPad 2.

Conclusion: [edited]

"It might frustrate the competition to hear this, but the iPad 2 isn't just the best tablet on the market, it feels like the only tablet on the market. As much as we'd like to say that something like the Xoom has threatened Apple's presence in this space, it's difficult (if not impossible) to do that."

"Is the iPad 2 a perfect product? Absolutely not. The cameras are severely lacking and its operating system still has significant annoyances, like the aggravating pop-up notifications."

"There's little to argue about in the way of price, and in terms of usability, apps like GarageBand prove that we haven't even scratched the surface of what the iPad can do."

"For owners of the previous generation, we don't think Apple's put a fire under you to upgrade. You've still got a solid piece of gear that reaps plenty of the benefits of the latest OS and apps. For those of you who haven't yet made the leap, feel free to take a deep breath and dive in - the iPad 2 is as good as it gets right now. And it's really quite good."
