Check out our guide to the best upcoming tablets in 2011.

According to The Wall Street Journal, the iPad 2 will be thinner and lighter than the original, and will come with a faster processor, more memory and a more powerful graphics processor.

The article quoted "people familiar with the matter" and also said the second-generation iPad will have a front-facing camera in order to utilise Apple's Facetime feature. It also claims that the resolution of the iPad 2's display will be similar to the first iPad, ruling out the inclusion of Apple's retina display used on the iPhone 4.

The iPad 2 is widely expected to be announced by Apple this month, with a likely Australian launch set for April or May, almost a year since the first iPad debuted down under. It is expected to compete with a range of new Android tablets in 2011, headed by the Motorola Xoom.

Apple has sold 14.8 million iPad's worldwide since its launch in 2010.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
