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?
Malaysia will most probably receive the new iPad on this summer. As everybody know, Malaysia’s market is not as good as others.
I think Malaysians will get the new iPad or 3rd generation iPad (iPad 3) end of April 2012. I think Malaysian market is quite vibrant?
the resolution of New Ipad is really great. and ipad 2 drop price! 😀
The new iPad is great, but does not seem to attract me since i mostly use it for web browsing and facebook-ing only. I’m seriously considering to get the iPad 2 since the price has dropped.
is it worth if i buy ipad3 at singapore? the price converted to RM will be 1899 which is cost RM100 more! PLEASE LEAVE COMMENT 🙂
do you all think that the new ipad price in singapore will be the same as malaysia price?
From our experience, iPad prices in Malaysia is cheaper than Singapore. The difference is around RM100 – RM200, if I am not mistaken. So, if you still can wait, then you should wait for Malaysia new iPad (iPad 3) launch somewhere in April 2012 and save some $$$. If you can wait and willing to spend extra, then go ahead and get it from Singapore.
This one really depends on you. If you think the benefits of your early purchase outweighs your extra cost, then you should just go ahead. If you think you can wait, then I really suggest you wait because usually iPad in Malaysia is cheaper than iPad in Singapore.
I’m very confusing now…i’m not sure whether have to wait for the new ipad or just go ahead buy the ipad 2 since ipad 2’s price has dropped…
MMY, what is there to be confused? Just wait for another month and get the new iPad, 3rd generation of course. You have waited for so long to buy an iPad, why not wait for another month. It’s very easy, just distract yourself from thinking of iPad. 🙂 The current new iPad (iPad 3) is definitely more value for your hard earned money. Just my 2 cents. 🙂
I agree with JohnKhor. I would rather wait to get the New iPad eventhough on iPad2.

Akilan , thanks for the support!!! Made my day 🙂
when the new ipad will reach malaysia???awaiting ya…:)
i was wondering,if i get new ipad from singapore, is the warranty effective in malaysia also?
I have similar question also. If i buy it in US, is the warranty effective in malaysia also?
when will ipad3 show up in malaysia? and does ipad2 price had already dropped even though ipad3 doesn’t even set foot in malaysia?
Hi, the new iPad (iPad 3) should show up in Malaysia somewhere middle of April or end of April. As sson as I have the info, I will post in my blog. Stay tuned. Yes, the prices for iPad 2 models have dropped RM300.
i can see now , all the apple shop already out of stock for the ipad2 64 GB + 3G, but i still see can buy in apple website,rm2199.May i know if new ipad(ipad3) what is the price for 64GB+4G ?? should be a same ?? cause my budget only rm2200……can you give me any comment & idea ???
Hi, the price of the new iPad 64GB WiFi + 4G should be like last year which is RM2,499. So, if you really have the extra RM200 to spare, then I strongly suggest you to take the new iPad (iPad 3) which is more worth it. The 5MP rear camera is already a good reason for that. The current 0.7MP rear camera is like shit. You just can’t take good pictures with that. You do take pictures sometimes when you are using the iPad. Forget about those who said that they don’t take pictures with their iPads. So, please, buy the new iPad (iPad 3). 🙂 Hope I can help you with that.
