The Verdict: Cheapest iPad Mini

Cheap Apple iPad Mini: Price comparison by countryOur price analysis shows that Malaysia remains to be the country offering the cheapest Apple iPad Mini. The prices are even slightly lower than the official prices in the US. Malaysia is also the country that sells the cheapest iPad 2.

In contrast, China and New Zealand are two countries with relatively expensive prices of the iPad Mini. The Philippines also ranks as one of the countries with a relatively high price tag for the gadget.

So if you’re looking to get the best bargain for the iPad Mini, check out our price comparison table and see where you can go for the best deal. Or you might want to wait, since rumors currently abound that Apple is now already working on the newer version — the iPad Mini 2 — which could be launched sometime in 2013.
