If you have not yet been bitten by the new iPad bug and are contemplating picking up iPad 2, here is a quick comparison between the new iPad and the iPad 2 for you.

Apple recently launched its third generation tablet, which is simply being called the new iPad.

Apple says that with the launch of the new iPad, the iPad 2 will still be available in the market.

The differences between the two devices are quite stark, however, the price difference may sway users that prefer value for money, over top-range features.
