From having an official price of Php 23,990 during its release last year, the 16GB iPad2 Wifi only version now goes for just Php 18,990 via Apple Store Online Philippines. Retailers, kindly note.
Interestingly, Apple only retained two iPad2 variants in its 2012 product line-up; The 16GB Wifi Only and 16GB Wifi + 3G versions. The latter now sells for Php 24,990 from having a price tag of Php 30,990.
This whopping Php 5,000 to Php 6,000 price cut follows the official release of the new iPad in the Philippines -- heralded by the stellar launch of Globe Telecom's New Tattoo iPad two nights ago. As earlier explained in TP, the #newTattooiPad is Apple's 2012 flagship tablet bundled with Globe's fastest Tattoo mobile connection.
Described by Apple as "Still every bit as amazing. And now more affordable than ever," the iPad 2 - announced on March 3, 2011 - features a 9.7-inch LED-backlit LCD screen and is powered by Apple's dual-core A5 processor for fast performance and stunning graphics. The slate comes with two cameras; a front-facing VGA camera for FaceTime video calls and Photo Booth, and a rear-facing shooter that captures 720p HD videos. Thinner and lighter than its aging predecessor and even the new iPad, iPad2 delivers up to 10 hours of battery life that users have come to expect from an Apple mobile product.
Who's getting one?! Well, if you ask me, I'd suggest that you just get the new Tattoo iPad instead; And I'm not saying this just because I'm an ambassador of the product. I mean, Php 18,990 is already quite an amount. Add a bit more to that and you can already get the latest version of the tablet paired with unlimited mobile data. Think about it.
