Like the original iPad, the GSM/A-GPS iPad 2 (A1396) is a tablet computer designed for "browsing the web, reading and sending e-mail, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading e-books, and much more".
It is equipped with a 9.7-inch (1024x768, 132 ppi) multitouch "glossy" LED-backlit IPS display. It is powered by a custom-designed 1 GHz dual-core Apple A5 "system on a chip", front and rear mounted cameras, 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi, GSM, and A-GPS support, an accelerometer, a three-axis gyroscope, an ambient light sensor, digital compass, a speaker and a built-in mic packed in a 0.34 inch thick, 1.35 pound glass and aluminum case with a black or white front and an aluminum back.
Compared to the original iPad, major differences for the iPad 2 models include a thinner, lighter case design, faster processors, system-wide mirroring support, and the aforementioned cameras.
