The iPad mini and iPad 4th generation are all set to be launched in India today. And it seems that the price for the iPad mini isn't so pricey after all, at least where the basic version is concerned. The new iPod touch is also out and it costs more than the mini !
According to this Tech2 report, the iPad mini's 16GB Wi-Fi only version will cost Rs 21,900.
The 32GB and 64GB versions will be available for Rs 27,900 and Rs 33,900 respectively. The iPad mini Wi-Fi + Cellular version will come with a starting price at Rs 29,900 for the 16GB version, while the 32GB version will be available for Rs 35,900. iPad mini, the 64GB Wi-Fi + Cellular version, won't come cheap with a starting price of Rs 41,900.
If the device is indeed priced at Rs 21,900 for the 16GB model, it will compete directly with the Nexus 7 which is priced below Rs 20,000. Remember Nexus 7 doesn't have 3G or Cellular connectivity either.
The fourth generation, 9.7-inch iPad with the Wi-Fi only will start at Rs 31,900, the 32GB model at Rs 37,900, and the 64GB version at Rs 43,900.
The Wi-Fi + Cellular iPad 16GB version will start at Rs 39,900; the 32GB tablet will cost Rs 45,900; and the 64GB variant will cost Rs 51,900.
The fifth generation iPod touch is also out. And the price for that is Rs 23,900 for the 32 GB version while the 64 GB version is available for Rs 30,900.
