Finally, the Apple’s new iPad is here in Malaysia, officially. And despite the “not so big of an improvement” from the iPad 2, the launch will still be huge.
Apple just announce that the new iPad will be available in Malaysia together with 11 other countries including Brunei and South Korea with Thailand getting it only on the 27th April 2012.
The new iPad biggest improvement is the Retina Display with unbelievable resolution, improved 5MP camera and an A5X processor with quad-core GPU but it is slightly thicker and heavier than the iPad 2. But it is compatible to all the iPad 2 casing and covers if you are worried. Pricing will be similar to the iPad 2 price before the RM300 price slash. Which is RM1499 for the 16GB Wifi version and so on.
If you are not a big fan of powerful GPU or high resolution screen, the iPad 2 is now very cheap.
