iPad: 2nd Generation

Last year, I applied leave just to queue for the iPad. I was the last person in queue to secure the iPad 16GB Wifi at BEST Denki City Square outlet. iPad was out of stock island-wide by the end of the day, only to be restocked 2 weeks later.

This year, iPad 2 will be launched in Singapore on 29 April. This time round, you can order online from 1am, or purchase from the stores directly when they open for business.

I have little reason to replace my current iPad, as the 2nd generation offers little new features (faster processor, camera, thinner and lighter) and all of the same iOS limitations – limitations that would not affect the majority of the casual users. At only S$668 for the 16GB Wifi version, the iPad 2 will easily be the top selling tablet in Singapore, and I am happy to recommend it for entertainment use and to perform some specific tasks that iPad is known to be good at.

But if you plan to use iPad 2 as a powerful multi-tasking mobile computing tool, then think again. I would recommend you think Android.
