iPhone 5

23 March, 2011

this Friday, it's confirmed, and cheaper

iPad 2

Finally, Apple confirmed that iPad 2 will be available in Australia this Friday, 25th April. Adding 25 countries after the United States of America where iPad 2 was available a whole 2 weeks ahead of the rest of the world.

In Australia, iPad 2 will be available in following prices:

  • 16GB model (Wi-Fi): AU$ 579
  • 32GB model (Wi-Fi): AU$ 689
  • 64GB model (Wi-Fi): AU$ 799
  • 16GB model (Wi-Fi + 3G): AU$ 729
  • 32GB model (Wi-Fi + 3G): AU$ 839
  • 64GB model (Wi-Fi + 3G): AU$ 949

Unlike the United States of America, all prices are inclusive of GST (that's the sale tax here in Australia).

Comparing to last year, iPad 2 are cheaper than the original iPad here in Australia. Savings range from $50 to $1000 depending on the model, or about 10% less than last year's launch price of the original iPad

The savings are as following:

  • 16GB (Wi-Fi): save $50 (was: $579, iPad 2: $579)
  • 32GB (Wi-Fi): save $70 (was: $759, iPad 2: $689)
  • 64GB (Wi-Fi): save $80 (was: $879, iPad 2: $799)
  • 16GB (Wi-Fi + 3G): save $70 (was: $799, iPad 2: $729)
  • 32GB (Wi-Fi + 3G): save $89 (was: $928, iPad 2: $839)
  • 64GB (Wi-Fi + 3G): save $100 (was: $1049, iPad 2: $949)

Apple also said that iPad 2 will be available in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and additional countries in April, and in many more countries around the world in the coming months.

Unfortunately, the weather forecast is not looking very nice.

Well, like in the USA, iPad 2 will be available at 5pm from Apple Retail Store. However, due to extreme popular in demand and supply shortage, there's no guarantee that I can get one.

The next question is, should I get a black or a white one?

Except I haven't said that I am getting an iPad 2.
