Yesterday i.e. 16th March 2012, Apple released the new iPad/iPad 3 in U.S and 9 other countries. Everyone who bought the new iPad is truly amazed with the total package. Praises of the new iPad by their users are spreading rapidly. It’s been also reviewed by all major websites and the results are positive as it has usually been with every Apple device. Especially the retina display is in a lot of talk. We just can’t wait to get our hands on the new iPad as soon as it arrives in India. But when will it be launched in India? And what will be the price?
Now we do not have any special sources from Apple to provide us the answers. So let us do a little bit of analysis to discover answers to these questions. If we look at the history then we’ll see that Apple launched iPhone 3GS on the 16th June 2009, while in India it was launched after a very long time, i.e. on 26th March 2010. Almost a year was taken by Apple to launch iPhone 3GS in India. Even the date for the launch of iPhone 4 in U.S was nearing. The gap was huge. iPhone 4 was launched in U.S on 24th June 2010 and again after a year on 27th May it was launched in India.
iPhone 4S was launched on 14th October in U.S and right after one month on 24th November it was launched in India. That came as a surprise as Apple launched it so early. Same case was seen with the iPad 2. In U.S it was launched on 25th March and in India the date was 29th April. So with time Apple has managed to launch the device in India as soon as possible or let me say the demand of the iDevices have increased tremendously in India.
So now looking at the above data we can expect the new iPad/iPad 3 to arrive in India in the month of April or if extended then first week of May. I don’t think Apple would delay the launch in India. So April or May would hopefully be the month of release of the new iPad/iPad 3 in India.
As far as the pricing is concerned then the new iPad will be priced in India at nearly INR 30000-32000 for the starting model of 16GB Wi-Fi only. But we cannot predict it until the official launch of the new iPad in India. Till then you can have a look at the dropped/slashed price details of iPad 2 in India.
