iPad 2 Reviews: Still the Best

The tablet market is getting more and more crowded, but the iPad 2 is still the best. “I can comfortably recommend it as the best tablet for average consumers,” Walt Mossberg writes in The Wall Street Journal. Mossberg says the new thinner model was noticeably, if not dramatically, faster than its predecessor and it never crashed. The biggest drawbacks, he says, are that the new cameras are of mediocre quality; the battery life is shorter than it was in the original iPad; and it is not compatible with 4G.
