The New iPad, not iPad 3, iPad HD or iPad 2S. Just plain New iPad. Damn funny!!!
UPDATE: The new iPad (iPad 3) will launch in Malaysia on this Friday (20/April/2012). Click here for my post on the 3rd batch and 4th batch of countries getting the new iPad (iPad 3)
The New iPad or 3rd generation iPad is just launched today. The new iPad features A5X, an upgraded A5 chip with quad-core graphics, 5MP rear camera, Retina display with 2048 X 1536 pixels and LTE support.
The prices are still the same US$499 for 16GB WiFi only model, US$599 for 32GB WiFi only model and US$699 for 64GB WiFi only model.
Main question: What is the price of the new iPad in Malaysia?
So, we can expect the same pricing for the new iPad in Malaysia, RM1499 for 16GB WiFi only model, RM1799 for 32GB WiFi only model and RM2199 for 64GB WiFi only model?
Next main question: When will the new iPad be launched in Malaysia?
Malaysia will not get its new iPad this March. Japan, Singapore and Hong Kong will get it on 16th March 2012. Malaysia also will not get it in the second release of the new iPad. I think Malaysia will get its New iPad somewhere middle or end of April 2012. Check out here for the latest update on when Malaysians get the new iPad. At the mean time, you can go over to Singapore to get your new iPad. 🙂 No need to get from the grey market and pay obscene prices. 🙂
That’s all for a short update on the new iPad. I will write a longer post on the new iPad after I get my sleep. Good night, folks in +8 time 🙂
*UPDATE: As usual, Apple will decrease the price of its older model whenever Apple launches a new model. Here is the price of all iPad 2 models in Malaysia after discounts
iPad 2 16GB WiFi Only – RM1,199
iPad 2 32GB WiFi Only – RM1,499
iPad 2 64GB WiFi Only – RM1,799
iPad 2 16GB WiFi + 3G – RM1,599
iPad 2 32GB WiFi + 3G – RM1,899
iPad 2 64GB WiFi + 3G – RM2,199
What’s your say? Will you upgrade?
