And yes, in India they don’t have too many Apple stores, so you can go to the premium resellers of Apple Products – Croma,  Vijay Sales, Reliance iStore and eZone !

Additionally, many blogs had previously mentioned that price of iPad 2 in India will be same as iPad (16GB wifi model for ) – but that’s not the case. iPad 2 will come at a slight premium.

    Yeah even I wish if they could sell at the original iPad’s price. But whatever it’s worth to pay 1.5 k extra and getting it earlier.this is no sense in bringing only wifi or only 3g product in todays age of communication n connectivity even cheapest tablet and smartphone has both 3g and wifi.Sorry to say that but i am atleast not considering to buy ipad2 even though its great and going with others options in market
