Apple also appears to be on the verge of releasing the new iPad in China, Honduras, Indonesia, Nicaragua, Paraguay, and the Philippines. It’s just awaiting certification in order to put the device on shelves.
Pricing will differ from market to market but Apple’s suggested retail price is $499 for the 16GB Wi-Fi model all the way up to $829 for the Wi-Fi + 4G LTE 64GB iPad. The 4G LTE iPads are only available in the U.S. and Canada at the moment.
The new iPad trumps the iPad 2 in just about every way possible, introducing a high-resolution Retina Display, a new dual-core A5X processor with quad-core graphics, an iSight rear camera capable of taking better photos and video, and the same great battery life that iPad owners have grown to love.
