So, the iPad mini’s now official. Were we spot on with regards to the pricing?
It’s a yes! But it’s a no too.
Well, just check out the iPad mini price table below to know just what I mean:
US$ price Converted to Php ($1=Php41.39) 16GB iPad mini WiFi only $329 Php13,618 32GB iPad mini WiFi only $429 Php17,757 64GB iPad mini WiFi only $529 Php21,896 16GB iPad mini WiFi+Cellular $459 Php18,999 32GB iPad mini WiFi+Cellular $559 Php23,138 64GB iPad mini WiFi+Cellular $659 Php27,277
Since the iPad mini isn’t available yet in our region, there’s no pricing yet posted over at the Philippine Apple Online store (and there’s no telling when it will be).
So, we just relied on how much it’ll retail in the US and converted it to Philippine Peso. Yes, future tense ‘cause it’s yet to be available there as well. As Adel already mentioned, ETA for the iPad mini’s release in the US is November 2. WiFi only models first out the door, followed by the LTE-souped up iPad mini models.
If converted directly, the most affordable iPad mini is actually much more affordable then what we expected it to be. That said, the priciest one is also way much more expensive than Art’s estimated pricing.
But before you start planning your iPad mini budget, remember, there are still taxes and other charges that need to be factored in here. Needless to say, the entry level iPad mini definitely won’t go for just Php13K. It might actually just retail around Art’s guesstimate Php16.5K price point. Operative word, of course, is might.
Anyway, hopefully, the wait won’t be painfully too long so it’ll be a very merry iPad mini Christmas for you Apple fan boys out there.
