Here’s good news for Apple fans here in India, it looks like the iPad 2 is going to hit our shores in the next few days. OnlyGizmos has heard from their trusted sources that the iPad 2 is coming up on sale in India by the 28 or 29th of April and will go on sales via Chroma and Reliance Digital Stores. This could also be the reason why Apple has reduced the cost of the iPad here in India.
If this is true, for a change, India will no longer be considered as a dumping ground for older iPad models. As usual there’s no comments or confirmation of this from the Apple folks.
Even though the prices are not officially announced, the tech world is buzzing with expected launch prices, which peg the base iPad 2 16GB WiFi model at Rs. 27,900 and going all the way up to Rs. 44,900 for the 64GB WiFi + 3G model.
So if you’re planning on getting an iPad, wait for the iPad2 to hit the stores before you pick it up. Either way, because of the price drop on the original iPad models, you may want to consider that if you’re stuck on a tight budget.
