Apple products are usually delayed in India and the company is deemed to use India as a dumping ground for its outdated devices. This was the case with the original iPad that was officially launched in India almost a year after its initial availability in the US.
But here’s some really surprising news from OnlyGizmos, confirming that the recently released Apple iPad 2 will be officially launched next week in India on April 28-29th. It is stated that iPad 2 is coming to 13 more countries and India seems to be on that list. The iPad 2 is expected to be retailed through Vijay Sales, Croma, and Reliance iStores.
As for iPad 2 pricing in India, it will most probably be the same as the initial pricing of iPad in India. Below is the expected pricing for iPad 2 (Wi-Fi) and iPad 2 (Wi-Fi + 3G).
