    Does the iPad 2 have a newer wifi antenna, or is it the same as the one used in iPad 1?

    The reason for this question is that Apple has severely limited the iPad 1's antenna, so that it is able to connect to 11n, while not supporting any of the newer features in that standard. So the iPad's max throughput on 11n is 65mbps, which is only slightly faster than 11g.

    Source and lots of details:
