HP released a laptop that looks exactly like the Macbook Pro. Everyone else copied the idea of iPad. Touchscreen phones were dead until the iPhone succeeded. It's pretty hypocritical...everyone criticizes the things Apple makes that don't sell well and as soon as some of their products succeed, everyone's copying it.

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2011Why GSMarena always show that they against apple and apple produ... moreHmmm, this may be just me but I don't really see that GSMarena is being against Apple and it's products. GSMarena always mentions the iPhone4 as one of the alternatives when reviewing any of the HIGH-end Touchscreen smartphones from other Brands. It's the phone to compare to. They never annouce the iPhone as being defeated. It's always a matter of opinion and needs...and budget. I find this site very unbiased. It's thier job to find the cons of a product in case someone needs to know. Nothing's perfect if you want everything but some things can be perfect for a certain lifestyle. Anyway, I digress...Love the iPad2, thanks for the info GSMarena.com.

Overall, this is a groundbreaking piece of software for tablets. It wasn't without issues -- in fact, we had some major, system-stalling crashes which required a reboot of the iPad. It's clear that there are bugs to be worked out, and that despite that A5 CPU and increased memory, a music tracking and arranging app remains a fairly heavy piece of code.

ipad 2 is no match for samsung galaxy tab 10.1

Even with a bluetooth headset, the ipad 2 can't make voice call, so why is this article in gsmarena?

most online review sites receive tremendous encouragement to view manufacture products in a favorable light. Possibly this encouragement was altered in this time frame. my pet theory is that a major player outbid the previous winner.

Its 'magic' because the only difference between it and the ipad 1 is that apple put two cheap basic cameras on it,made it a bit thinner and a bit faster and is going to get away with this by calling it ipad 2 and fanboys spending their millions on it like good drones

Anonymous, 10 Mar 2011will u get laptop this cheap like today if u buy 10 yrs ago lolNope! Ten years ago, I got my computer for $900 and it got 800 MHz, 128 MB RAM, a 20 GB hard drive, a 14 inch CRT monitor and my ISP was AOL dial-up. =P Tech has come a long way since then. Who knows what we'll have in the next ten years. Octo-core 3D tablet with 8 gigs of RAM and able to run Photoshop mobile? Maybe Apple would be led by Jon Ives. lol XD
