The 16 GB model of Apple iPad 2 which works on WiFi only is now available in India for Rs 24,500.
A day after Apple launched a new version of its third generation tablet, it has reduced the price of its best selling iPad 2 by a whopping Rs 5,000.
"The iPad 2 is now offered at a more affordable price of Rs 24,500, inclusive of VAT for the 16GB Wi-Fi model and just Rs 32,900, inclusive of VAT for the 16GB Wi-Fi + 3G model," Apple India said in a press release.
Apple on Thursday announced its brand new 4G ready version of its iPad tablet. Though the new tablet will start selling in the USA market from 16th of this month for $499-$899 (Rs 25,050-Rs 45,130), there is no information whether when the same will be release in India.
The new iPad comes with Apple's new A5X chip with quad-core graphics and a 5 megapixel iSight camera with advanced optics for capturing amazing photos and 1080p HD video. The iPad with Wi-Fi + 4G will definitely give faster network connectivity at blazing speed.
"The new iPad now has the highest resolution display ever seen on a mobile device with 3.1 million pixels, delivering razor sharp text and unbelievable detail in photos and videos," the iPhone maker said in a press release. The tablet will also have new iOS 5.1 operating system.
By slashing the price of the older iPad 2, the company is hoping to give a fillip to the sell of its older iPad. Since there is no information now as when the new iPad will come to India, people may also take advantage of the price reduction.
The iPad 2 is one of the best selling tablets in the world. As the new tablet, it has also a 9.7 inch LED-backlit display features IPS screen. However, the new iPad's Retina display delivers four times the number of pixels of iPad 2. The iPad 2 comes with iOS4 operating system which is though upgradable to iOS 5.1 which has been introduced with the 4G iPad. The new tablet also has powerful new A5X chip with quad-core graphics against iPad2's A5 dual core 1 GHz Cortex-A9 processor.
Apple is good but Samsung is better as far the customer satisfaction goes in America.
As per rumours, the so called iPhone 6s mini will be similar to that of the iPhone 5s but would have curved screen edges, similar to the iPhone 6 Plus and the iPhone 6.
The phone was announced way back in 2010 and now has lost traction in most of the developed countries.
Apple iPad Air and iPad Mini with retina display models will go on sale in India from December 7 onwards.
Apple reportedly is planning iPhone models with 4.7 inch and 5.5 inch curved screen.
Apple has pushed the International Service mandate to the Apple Service Providers to offer repairs-replacement for the select iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models being sold in India.
Both iPhone 5s and iPhone 5c models will come preloaded with the new iOS 7 software update.
There are several better alternatives to the iPhone 5c, which impress with their features and performance.
As per the report, the iPhone 5s will also be offered by RCom for Rs 2,800 per month with unlimited calls, SMS, and 3G data.
Though you can get any model of the handsets for the said amount for 32 GB and above internal storage variants, you have to pay extra down payment.
