Apple seeded the usual suspects with its new tablet last week. A sampling of the reviews:
Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal: I’ve been testing an iPad 2 for about a week and I like it a lot. While it’s evolutionary rather than revolutionary like the first model, the changes Apple has made are generally pleasing and positive, and the device worked very well for me… It never crashed in my tests, unlike every Android tablet I’ve tested.
David Pogue, The New York Times: On paper, Apple didn’t do much. It just made the iPad one-third thinner, 15 percent lighter and twice as fast. There are no new features except two cameras and a gyroscope. I mean, yawn, right? And then you start playing with it… The iPad 2 is now 0.34 inches thick. Next to it, the brand-new Motorola Xoom — the best Android competitor so far — looks obese. (cont’d)
