Today morning we heard from Apple India that the price cut is effective in India as well. The 16GB WiFi only version of the iPad 2 is now available for Rs.24500. The 16GB WiFi+3G version now retails for Rs.32900.Apple has not yet declared the Indian pricing for the third generation iPad which packs a Retina display. It will reveal the Indian pricing closer to the launch. Don’t head out to the stores now and expect the new pricing for the new iPad 2 to be effective immediately as it might take a few days for the news to be communicated to the retail network. Couple of Apple Stores we spoke to were selling the iPad 2 at the same old price as of today morning.
Apple has announced the new iPad today with a bunch of new features and surprisingly , the old iPad or the iPad 2 is not going away from the shelves.

But if you are a Reliance 3G user and also carry along an iPad, these plans might be of interest to you .

What comes in your mind when someone asks you about Samsung and Apple? Well, if someone asks me that, I would say that both companies are currently going through a hard time. We know that Apple recently sued Samsung over Galaxy S and Galaxy Tab, and then Samsung sued Apple too, so currently there is a cold war going on. Samsung announced Galaxy Tab 10.1 at MWC which is the thinnest tablet available in the market and it’s really a big challenge for Apple iPad2.

Most of you might know that I have been in traveling in USA during most of this month. Although the iPad 2 was sold out in most places, I managed to grab an Apple iPad 2 – 64GB WiFi+3G Model from an Apple Store in New York City. This was the 5th store i had tried in 3 cities. The iPad 2 is much lighter than the first iPad and you will notice this as soon as you start using the device. I picked up the white version just because it seemed different.

Apple today launched the all new iPad 2 in an event in San Francisco. The new design is thinner at barely 8.8 mm thickness and its so light at just 601 grams for the basic version. That’s makes us ask the question if tablets are going to as thin as razor blades in future. The iPad 2 still offers the same stellar 10 hour battery life as the previous version.

Uncharacteristically Apple. The invite sent out last week to the media wasn’t subtle or discreet as the company is often wont to be. Instead, it showed an image of a calendar app icon peeled back to reveal the corner of an iPad that was very much identical to the one that is running on short supplies in Apple stores worldwide as you read this. So the next iPad is upon us, and now’s a great time to take stock of all the rumors and predictions around the new device. But before we start, the big question, at least to me is – which one will it be – iPad 2, or a 1.5 equivalent? It boils down to this – just how much does Apple need an iPad 2 beyond the simple ‘marketing’ matter of keeping up with the Joneses? Sure, the competition has recently trumpeted impressive specs such as dual-core processors, HDMI output, video chat, HD camcorders, and 4G wireless connections, but I for one feel they’re missing point completely in trying to beat the iPad on specs. Where the first generation iPad scores is on experience – the breadth and depth of apps (games included) that run like a dream on the iPad are yet to see serious competition from tablet specific apps on Android. Plus, the iPad’s 10 hours of battery life has set the bar really high for the competition, and all those dual core processors the competition is sporting aren’t going to help one bit in this department. I’d even be willing to wager that the first-gen is good for some more time yet, possibly with modest improvements, allowing for a bigger September iPad 2 update to capitalize on the massive holiday shopping season. All this points to why the updates I sense we’ll see come March 2 will be incremental and evolutionary, not revolutionary. Continue reading “A Byte of Apple : iPad 2 Predictions”
