We have been exclusively reporting about the iPad mini launch in India and yesterday we scooped the pricing of the iPad mini Wi-Fi edition. Today we have received the final pricing of both the iPad mini Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi+Cellular variants courtesy Cochin-based retailer ITNET Infocom. Read on for details.
Like we reported yesterday, the iPad mini Wi-Fi version will be available from Rs 21,900 for the 16GB version. The 32GB and 64GB variants will be priced at Rs 27,900 and Rs 33,900 respectively, just like we reported. The iPad mini Wi-Fi+Cellular version will start from Rs 29,900 for the 16GB variant and Apple will follow its Rs 6,000 difference between variants, which means the 32GB will be priced at Rs 35,900 and the 64GB variant will come with a Rs 41,900 price tag. We have independently verified these prices.
The retailer also claims that the fourth generation iPad (aka iPad 4 with Retina Display) will start from Rs 31,900 for the 16GB Wi-Fi only base variant. The 32GB and 64GB variants will be priced at Rs 37,900 and Rs 43,900 respectively. The Wi-Fi+3G variants will be priced at Rs 39,900, Rs 45,900 and Rs 51,900. This is a bump of Rs 2,000 over the third generation iPad with Retina Display prices (aka iPad 3), which is strange considering the iPad 4 essentially replaces the iPad 3 and we were expecting it to be priced the same, just like it is in the US.
