The Chinese can at last heave a sigh of relief. The iPad that has been the rage the world over will finally be launched officially there, too. That means that it took more than five months for iPad to reach Chinese shores. All good things come to those who wait, apparently. Obviously the huge demand of the Apple device everywhere else has prompted a delayed release in what can well turn out to be single largest market for Apple’s magical tablet. China has been regularly coming up with a host of tablet devices ever since the iPad was released which comprised of everything from iPad clones to iPad beaters.
Anyway, the real thing will be there for the taking from 10 in the morning this Friday, the 17th of September. Price has been fixed at CNY3988 for the 16 GB model, CNY4788 for the 32 GB version with the top end 64 GB model will be available for CNY5588. All of that translates to about $590, $708, and $826 for the three versions respectively.
One more territory for the iPad to conquer and it’s a big one with over a billion people. There is still are a lot more geographical location left. We hope Apple continues its expansion spree with more gusto.
