Cheap Prices of Apple iPad 2
May 13, 2011
Last year when the first Apple iPad was launched, we compared prices in various online Apple stores in Asia to determine where the cheapest iPad price can be found. We discovered that in Asia Pacific, the cheapest Apple iPad can be found in Apple’s online store Hong Kong, then Singapore, then Japan.
Is the same pricing applicable in the case of the new Apple iPad 2?
Apparently, no. Despite using the old pricing scheme as in the first generation iPad, the Apple iPad 2 reduced prices in other Asian countries. Also interestingly enough, you can even buy an Apple iPad 2 in one Asian country that is relatively cheaper than its US counterpart.

First, let’s look at the prices of the iPad 2 in local currencies in Australia, China, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, New Zealand, the Philippines and Singapore. Vietnam and Indonesia are currently not on the list because the iPad 2 has not been launched there yet.
