    Something isn't right

    I'm surprised no one has asked this already.
    Why is it that Apple intentionally did not disclose the specs on the rear camera, front camera, and amount of RAM. Nor did they mention that there is no improvement in display in comparison to iPad 1. Is it just me or is this really fishy?
    Hmmm perhaps Apple and Steve Jobs weren't too thrilled about that 1 megapixels cam in back and 0.3 megapixel cam in front.
    Maybe he didn't mention the screen resolution because he just got out done by Motorola Xoom in that department.
    What no mention of amount of RAM? I suspect a meager 512 KB or even worse, same 256KB of RAM as the original iPad. Most likely they fell shy of Xoom's 1 GB.
    Tricky tricky I say, something just doesn't smell right.

    Or perhaps those specifics haven't been mentioned, because they are not important.

    No one cares how much RAM the iPad has, as long as the OS and apps run without problems.

    Apple avoids promoting their products based on hardware specifics, because the hardware is not what creates the value of the device. It is the combination of hard-and soft-ware and the iPad is great at that. But if Apple would advertise the iPad with having 512MB RAM, a 3MP cam, etc. then that is what sticks in peoples mind and it will be easy for competitors to simply insert a 1GB RAM module.

    Huh? They never disclosed those detatails on ipad 1. It has at least 512mb of RAM . As far as cams, rear is either 2 or 3 megapixel. Rear can record HD 780p quality vids so its good. Front cam is 1mp or vga quaility at least. Both camsvrecord 30 fps or better. As far as screen resolution, its the same but better. Original ipad screen resolution greatvanyways.
    Xoom already Failed. Only has 100 android tablet apps compared to over 65,000 ipad tabletvonly apps. Regardless of hardware specs, apps are what makes or breaks a device. Yes, xoom has 1gb of ram cuz android is more multitask intensive so it needs that much. Xoom launch day was a bore n no press coverage. Ipad2 on other hand is being talked about everywhere. Go get a xoom n see how disappointed u will be when u running only mostly same mobile apps as cellphones..***** xoom is great on paper but no real software out to take advantage of the power. Why do u think original ipad broke so many records n sold millions. Ipad actually sold more ipads n less thn a year thn all tablets combined in history. Now that says somethin. Regardless of restrictions, the apps are great n made the ipad what it is today.

    Strange

    Funny that HarryLarry apparently joined this group today, perhaps only to make this negative post. Seems suspicious--perhaps a competitor?

    Perhaps, although I have to admit after I read the press coverage my first two questions were (1) what is the system memory and (2) what is the resolution of the cameras?

    Maybe HarryLarry is Superbike, lol.

    Just kidding, but to answer the question, it's because Apple doesn't think specs are that important. What's important is the user experience, ease of use, etc. Jobs talked about this at length in his keynote.

    Main Point is, that owners of iPAD-1 , when reading what they may miss with the iPAD-2, the answer is - Not much. No need to rush out and replace the iPAD-1 . Maybe when iPAD-3 Comes out.
    Think before you Sync Since you may Sink
    The More Tweaks you have - Less Memory is left

    Back camera is 720 and front FaceTime camera is VGA. Means nothing to me, but it is the standard posted. Someone out there had a comparison of all tablets listed. Ram was not posted on the original iPad at first either.

    System memory is 512k same as iPhone 4. Double iPad 1 do not get hung up on the fact android tablet zoom has igb of system memory. I state this because you have 2 different operating systems and it is impossible to compare directly.. Just relax have a Fosters and wait to test the iPad when it ships then one has a better idea how efficient the 512k ram is on an iPad 2
