This is really exciting news for SA, but also comes as a bit surprise when the iPad 2 is due to announced anytime soon. That said, I only predict we will see the physical iPad2 in around April, so it’s not the end of the world. Also, I can’t see the iPad2 being available in South Africa from the launch, so we will most probably have to wait. Apple have already sold close on 15 million iPads around the world since it was announced exactly a year ago.

I am really excited by this announcement, as it will mean loads more people enjoying the awesome iPad :)

In my view the pricing is quite keen;lower than I expected. Will sell like hotcakes.32GB WiFi upward makes most sense;base 16GB is a great entry point.

Pricing is what I expected, considering it’s only $500, and the exchange rate is quite favourable ATM. It’s not a shabby buy, but the iPad 2 is something to keep in mind.
