Made for portrait reading
The Media Edition is designed to be used in a portrait position, to read ebooks and the like - but of course can be used in landscape too. The display has been optimised for wide viewing angles that make it great for watching video with friends.
However, Apple's marketing means that they have a more known brand and probably a more dedicated fanbase, so the iPad 2 is likely to garner more sales nonetheless.
This looks interesting! I have IPad 2, I love it to bits!
However this has aero it seems.
This has a good price also.
