    We just bought my husband an ipad2 yesterday. There are no differences on the box compared to my new iPad box (other the info on the back). Also what I thought was very weird is the back of his iPad just says "iPad" not "ipad2"

    And the background picture on the iPad itself. On the iPad 2 it's a grey background with a light blue top and the new iPad has a picture of the sea.

    That is a new iPad wifi only, forget the number on the box though, if you are unsure check to see if the same number is on the back of your iPad.

    To turn on the dictation feature go to;settings-general- keyboard- dictation.Set the dictation feature to on and the Mike icon will appear on your keyboard.

    It says A1416 at the back of the ipad too.

    You only get the mic if you are connected to the Internet since the dictation has to be sent to apple servers for conversion to text.
