    The iPad 1 does not have a camera, but the iPad 2 does.  Therefore the iPad 2 will have Camera and PhotoBooth Apps.


    My iPad 2 is up-to-date at iOS 6.0.1.  I understand that the iPad 1 can not be updated to iOS 6.


    My iPad 2 does not appear to have dictation.  Perhaps your Brother's iPad has a dictation App that yours does not.

    Look at the A number on the back of the iPad.

    The iPad 3 & 4 came with Dictation app. However, there's a dictation app for older iPads called Dragon Dictation.

    What is the problem you are trying to solve?  If your Brother's iPad 2 iOS is not at revision 6.0.1, it needs to be updated.


    If you both have an iPad 2, then they both should have come with the same Apps, regardless of where they were bought.  There are slight differences between models that have a cellular internet connection, and models that are WiFi only.


    If his iPad 2 has a dictation App, he may have downloaded the Dragon Dictation App from the iTunes App Store as Tom suggested.  You would need to do the same with your iPad 2, if you want dictation capability, unless you both share the same Apple ID.  If that were the case, all of your purchased Apps should be available to all compatible iPads, iPhones and iPods that are synchronized to iTunes on the same computer.
