New Delhi: Apple’s iPad 2 will be available in Indian stores from Friday, just over a month after the company started selling the updated version of its popular tablet device in the United States.
The iPad 2, a thinner and faster version that features two cameras for video chat, is priced between Rs29,500 and Rs46,900, depending on the model.
The device will be available through authorized resellers from 9 a.m. local time on Friday, a company statement said.
The model with 16 GB of memory that works only on Wi-Fi is priced at Rs29,500, while the one that can operate on both Wi-Fi as well as third-generation (3G) mobile networks costs Rs36,900.
Customers have the option to buy an iPad 2 with 16, 32 or 64 GB of memory and can choose a model that works only on Wi-Fi or on both Wi-Fi and 3G.
Research firm IHS iSuppli estimates Apple will ship 39.7 million units for all models of the iPad this year.
The first iPad - which went on sale a year ago - sold 300,000 units on the first day, 500,000 in the first week, and crossed the 1 million unit mark in 28 days.
