Just now we received an email from Apple titled iPad 2 arrives on 29 April. So all speculation with respect to iPad2 arrival in India can now be put to rest. This came as a pleasant surprise to us given that Apple has a history of launching its product quite late in India – only when they are about to release a new version in the US.
Apple has also issued a press release declaring that –
iPad 2 with Wi-Fi will be available in Japan on April 28 and Hong Kong, India, Israel, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and UAE on April 29 for a suggested retail price of $499 (US) for the 16GB model, $599 (US) for the 32GB model and $699 (US) for the 64GB model. iPad 2 with Wi-Fi + 3G will be available for a suggested retail price of $629 (US) for the 16GB model, $729 (US) for the 32GB model and $829 (US) for the 64GB model. iPad 2 with Wi-Fi will be available in China on May 6, and further international availability will be announced at a later date.
Check the differences between ipad 2 and ipad 1. Also the official launch video of ipad 2 straight from Apple.
For me personally the announcement came at the right time. I was about to ask a friend to get a WiFi only version from the US. Now I’ll be purchasing the 16GB Wifi-3G enabled version in India, since the carrier locking issue will no more exist with Indian versions.
