iPad 2 out of stock in India

Posted by

Oh dear, Apple madness started in India too. Just a day after its official launch, Apple iPad 2 is out of stock in India. According to Apple, it is working on availability of the product, but the tablet will be available only after 10 days.

Apple iPad 2 was officially launched in India on April 29, 2011. The device was made available in 100+ Apple Premium Resellers/ Apple Stores located in Delhi, NCR, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Mumbai and other major metro cities across India.

But at present iPad 2 is out of stock throughout the country, however Apple lovers can place an order by paying 20 per cent of the price of the products in advance. Apple iPad 2 in India is priced between Rs. 29,500 and Rs. 46,900, based on the memory – 16, 32 or 64 GB.

I think the reason for the high demand is the Unavailability of iPad  devices in India. Apple discontinued shipment of iPad 1 , due to the expected release of iPad 2 and the subsequent launch.

I wonder Why Apple underestimated the high Demand or is Apple testing the Indian Market with limited units shipment, what ever the reason you have to wait another 10 days to go hands-on with iPad 2.

  1. Priority will be given to countries with higher purchasing power. Their main profit is from the apps, not the device itself.

    People from the developing countries tend to jailbreak it and download pirated version of the apps, that is why stocks will always be available in europe, Japan and america.

  2. Had a chance to give try yesterday in one of Reliance iStore. Piece looks elegant & Extreemly sensitive and fast & fantastic to have hands on it… I guess in Mumbai still quite a lot stock i can see in display…
