ipad 2nd gen

I have been waiting for this for a long time, ever since I placed an order on Apple store on the 22nd of June I have been waiting days and weeks for this to arrive in the post. I also ordered a blue smart cover to go along with the iPad 2. Will be using it later today and installing my favourite games Asphalt6 :P

  • Triple or Quad Core Chip
    • Great for games and application which uses a lot of memory and cpu usage.
  • Greater Flash Memory
    • 64GB is not enough for our gamers, especially you have games range 400-600MB. Plus music, videos and photos an estimate of 10GB or more. I would really love to see 128GB.
  • USB Port/Card Slot
    • I was hoping to see a USB port for the iPad 2. Hopefully they will consider adding one for the next generation.
  • Longer Battery Life
    • Battery goes flat after a few hours on action games, hoping to see longer battery life.

Yes! Apple will be releasing the iPad 2 on March 11th 2011. Not long now for the Americans to grab their precious Apple device. So the iPad 2 has the dual core A5 chip, faster graphics card, HDMI supported, Facetime and cameras. But still we have the 10 hour battery life, was hoping for more. Especially when playing game they run out so fast, after an hour or two on Need for Speed the battery goes down from 100% to 45%.

Apple iPad 2

More information, click the link above. I wonder what’s next for the iPad 3.

My 3 iDevices are all jailbroken and I love using Cydia to install 3rd party apps and tweaks. As for an original iDevice it cannot install 3rd party apps unless you jailbreak it. I would love to see that Apple can implement more changes to the software such as infinitie apps for categories, theme customization or maybe a queue feature for AppStore. Everytime I scrolled down to 76th app, starts downloading it and installed. Going back to AppStore, and I had to scroll all the way down again. I don’t mind doing that again, but it’s time consuming. I like the way how Cydia manage their packages, confirm the package you want to download, set it queue list and after you have managed to find what you want. Hit confirm to install all packages onto your iDevice.

Let’s hope that Apple will make changes to the software very soon.

I hope the next version of the iPad should have a selection of colours to choose from, such as white, blue, purple, green, orange. I know some websites sell coloured iPads with a higher price, and that’s only the 1st generation. Would there be a market for the coloured iPads in the future? Do Apple care about the colour of the device or the functions of the iPad?

Since the iPad is featured as a tablet PC they should add a sound button, which enable/disable the sound of the device. Most users probably want this function on their iPads, rather than pressing hardly on their volume button.

We have the amazing 1st generation iPad now and there’s a 2nd generation iPad coming out maybe next year. What do you think Apple going to add? Webcam? Flash, if Steve decided to change his mind? Additional ports? TV-Out Enabled? I’m hoping that the next generation iPad should have a built-in webcam and ports. Webcam is convenient for many users such as myself, can use it via instant messengers or take a quick snaps of ourselves. Ports added into the iPad would be a bonus, charging your portable media players or you might have mini USB gadgets. I’m not a fan of Flash so I don’t mind if they have Flash enable or not. I doubt it will happen, as Steve Jobs dislikes the software. As long the media players work fine on Safari, as you may know that some websites have media players built-in such as Windows Media and RealPlayer. It would be ideal to see it happening, for the time being all we see is a blue box with a question mark.

Earlier on I read a news article saying that the next generation iPad going to come in different sizes. This is getting interesting I wonder how much would it cost when it comes out. Not too long yet I think 6-8 months we should hear the announcement from WWDC next year.

What do you think we might have on the next generation?
