As an upgrade from the original iPad, the iPad 2 is lighter, thinner, and has a front and rear-facing camera along with a faster CPU. I am very happy with the product, but disappointed that walmart.com gave me one with the older 4.3.3 iOS firmware installed instead of the latest 5.0.1. The new firmware version was released over a month ago, and as many of these units Walmart is selling, you would think they could supply them with the latest iOS installed, as Apple does if you buy directly from their online store. Although the price was $30 less at walmart.com and a free 3-piece accessory kit was thrown in, I had to spend a couple of hours of my valuable time updating the firmware as soon as I received the device.
Otherwise, I am very happy with the product itself, as I have been with all the mobile Apple devices I've recently purchased. I received the iPad 2 quickly, about three days after placing my online order.
