|iPad 2 with Smart Cover|
Though Japan will have an earlier release (April 28), the Philippines will join Hong Kong, India, Israel, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey, and the UAE in the April 29th release of the much anticipated 2nd-generation iPad tablet. All models are available in the said Asian countries (Wi-Fi only and Wi-Fi + 3G; both black and white versions); except for China in which the Wi-Fi only iPad 2 will be available comes May 6.
Prices of all iPad 2 models are just the same with that in the US; so here in the Philippines – expect our early estimates to be accurate. That is:
16GB WiFi – Php23, 990
32GB WiFi – Php28, 990
64GB WiFi – Php33, 990
16GB 3G + WiFi – Php30, 990
32GB 3G + WiFi – Php35, 990
64GB 3G + WiFi – Php40, 990
It’s really nice to see Apple decided not to delay the release here in the country at a later date like what they did with the first-gen iPad. So anyone buying? [via]
