Apple iPad 2 16GB Wi-Fi Black (MC769B/A)
Pad 2 is thinner, lighter and faster, yet it has the same 10-hour battery life (1). With two cameras, you can make FaceTime video calls and record HD movies. And the iPad Smart Cover (2) attaches magnetically and aligns perfectly to your iPad 2.
The all-new thinner and lighter design makes iPad 2 even more comfortable to hold. It’s even more powerful with the dual-core A5 chip, yet has the same 10 hours of battery life (1). With two cameras, you can make FaceTime video calls, record HD video and put a twist on your snapshots in Photo Booth. And the iPad Smart Cover (2) attaches magnetically and wakes up, stands up and brightens up your iPad 2.

Two cameras. And a big hello to FaceTime for iPad.
You’ll see two cameras on iPad — one on the front and one on the back. They may be tiny, but they’re a big deal. They’re designed for FaceTime video calling, and they work together so you can talk to your favourite people and see them smile and laugh back at you.3 The front camera puts you and your friend face-to-face. Switch to the back camera during your video call to share where you are, who you’re with or what’s going on around you. If it’s worth filming, let the back camera roll. It’s HD, so every movie you shoot is a mini-masterpiece. And you can take wacky snapshots in Photo Booth. It’s the most fun a face can have.
LED-backlit display. The view is amazing.
iPad is one big, beautiful display — 9.7 inches of high-resolution photos, films, web pages, books and more. LED backlighting makes everything you see remarkably crisp, vivid and bright. Even in places with low light, like an airplane. And there’s no wrong way to hold iPad. It’s designed to show off everything in portrait and landscape, so with every turn (even upside down), the display adjusts to fit. Because it uses a display technology called IPS (in-plane switching), it has a wide, 178° viewing angle. Hold it up to someone across the room, or share it with someone sitting next to you, and everyone gets a brilliant view.
Multi-Touch. Everything’s at your fingertips.
Technology is at its best when it feels completely natural, almost like there’s no technology at all. That’s Multi-Touch on iPad. You use your fingers to do everything, so everything you do — surfing the web, typing email, reading books and swiping through photos — is easier and a lot more fun. How does it work? When your fingers touch the display, it senses them using electrical fields. Then it instantly transforms your taps, swipes, pinches and flicks into lifelike actions. Just like that.
iOS 4. The world’s most advanced mobile operating system.
iOS 4 is the operating system for iPad (along with iPhone and iPod touch). It lets you browse, read and see everything just by pointing your finger. It includes all the powerful, innovative and fun built-in apps you use every day, many times a day. And it’s the platform on which more than 65,000 other amazing apps have been created for iPad. It’s highly secure, stable and responsive, and it’s made to work seamlessly with the iPad hardware. iOS 4 is the reason no other device has yet come close to iPad.
Gyro, accelerometer and compass.
iPad knows your every move.
With the built-in accelerometer, you can rotate iPad to portrait or landscape, or even upside down, and whatever you’re watching, reading or seeing adjusts to fit the display. And now the accelerometer, three-axis gyroscope and compass all work together. They sense where iPad is, which direction it’s facing and how it’s moving. So games, maps and other apps know your every twist, turn, tilt and 360. It’s an epic win for gaming. And it’s just the beginning of better-than-ever iPad apps.
