The new iPad or the third generation iPad went on sale last week and as expected Apple sold millions of devices on the opening day. Like previous releases, the new iPad also has its share of problems like heating and screen issues. The New iPad is not yet announced for India like any other Apple product release. As of now, we don’t have any details of new iPad coming to India, but since the iPad 2 came almost 2 months after its global release, we can expect the same to happen this time around. But in case you are not interested in waiting, you can still get the iPad in flat 7 days fro Shop Your World.
Shop Your World is global online shopping website which focuses on Indian consumers and they import the new iPad from US. This is in a good for Indian buyers looking to get hold of new iPad as soon as possible. But the charges are pretty high when compared to US rates. The base model of 3rd generation iPad comes for 45900 INR, when the US price is 499$ which approximately converts to 25000 INR. Although we cannot directly compare the US price with price in India, 45900 is still a steep price for the device.
When iPad 2 was released back in March 2011, the lowest model (16GB Wi-Fi) was priced at 36500INR and when comparing the price with 3rd generation, there is again a steep increase.
If you have someone coming from US or UK, then the best option is to get through them as the prices will still be a lot cheaper even if duty needs to be paid.
Note: I have not purchased anything from Shop Your World, there has been both positive as well as negative feedback about SYW service, so check with any of your friends who has purchased from SYW. the prices shown are inclusive of all charges and they have mentioned that shipping is free of cost.
