Along with its Wi-Fi only and GSM-equipped contemporaries, the Apple iPad 2 (Wi-Fi/CDMA/A-GPS) was proclaimed to be the start of a “post PC” era (although it originally still was required to be “tethered” to a Mac or Windows PC for synchronization and updates). Like the original iPad, the CDMA/A-GPS iPad 2 (A1397) is a tablet PC designed for “browsing the web, reading and sending email, enjoying photos, watching videos, listening to music, playing games, reading ebooks, and significantly more”.It is equipped with a 9.7-inch (1024×768, 132 ppi) multitouch “shiny” LED-backlit IPS display and runs a version of the same iOS operating framework that powers the iPhone and iPod touch models.£48.00 – £81.00
the Apple iPad mini models (1st Gen) feature a 7.9″ 1024×768 (163 ppi) LED-backlit IPS touch-sensitive display, a dual core 1 GHz Apple A5 processor, 512 MB of RAM, 16 GB, 32 GB or 64 GB of flash memory storage, dual cameras — a rear-mounted 5 megapixel “iSight” camera capable of shooting stills and 1080p video and a front-mounted 1.2 megapixel “FaceTime HD” camera capable of shooting stills and 720p video, dual-band 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, stereo speakers, and more. Connectivity to computers, if desired, and power is provided by the Lightning port.
This specific iPad mini A1454 model also has support for A-GPS and GLONASS, GSM/EDGE, UMTS/HSPA+/DC-HSDPA, and LTE bands 4 and 17. In the US, it first was intended to run on the AT&T network (and T-Mobile was added subsequently).£57.50 – £84.00
