Yes, there comes the remaining lot of the iPad to India. And Apple is launching the iPad at a throw away price of Rs.26,000 (considering Apple’s pricing scheme). This price sounds too good to be true and its true. Hope they don’t ship the refurbished ones. We’ll they don’t do that usually. One of the main reasons why they are shipping this product to India is to make way for the iPad 2, so where do they actually sell the left overs? India.
And the iPhone 4 is yet to be launched here. Don’t worry, just when the next gen iPhone launches in the US, Apple will launch the iPhone 4 to the Indian market.
