New iPad officially coming to the Philippines on May 29


While there are some folks out there that managed to grab the new iPad through, uh, “creative” channels, Apple has not yet made the newest iteration of their tablet officially available to the Philippines. Well, the wait is almost over – according to the official site of Apple, the revolutionary device will hit our shores come May 29, giving people roughly a week and a half to try and scrounge up enough cash to get it. Like the previous iPads before it, the new iPad will be made available through partner stores and telecoms like Globe and Smart come May 29. While the price for the new iPad starts at $499 for the base, 16GB WiFi only model, it’s not guaranteed that local retailers will stick to that price as there will be different factors affecting the final, landed cost of the tablet, with taxes being a major one.
