Gadget lovers in Pakistan are desperate to get their hands on iPad 2, however, those who had bought iPad (1) are somewhat confused about their current/old iPads. This is due to a fact that iPad 2 (WiFi only version) comes with the same price as of iPad 1.

Now, as in Pakistan, we don’t have 3G, so vendors will ship WiFi only version of iPad 2.

When to Expect iPad 2 in Pakistan?

We don’t have any words from vendors about the availability of iPad in Pakistan. However, we have heard from various online retailers that iPad 2 will be made available in Pakistan by late March. In fact HomeShopping is claiming that iPad 2 will hit their stores in Pakistan on March 17th, 2011.

iPad 2 Price in Pakistan?

HomeShopping.PK is already accepting pre-orders, they are offering iPad 2 (WiFi only – 16 GB) in Pakistan at the price of Rs. Rs 69,990/ – Rs. 74,990

Anticipated iPad 2 Prices in Pakistan:

iPad 2 3G Price in Pakistan: 16GB: Rs. 75,000, 32GB: Rs. 85,000, 64GB: Rs. 95,000

iPad 2 WiFi Price in Pakistan: 16GB: Rs. 65,000, 32GB: Rs. 72,000, 64GB: Rs. 83,000

Just in case, if you missed yesterday’s conference by Apple,  where the New iPad which is known as iPad 2 was introduced, following are few details about it.

A new birth in the Apple family and as usual it’s beautiful. We even have choices of Black or White and this time the “White iPad 2” will be available from the first date of launch whereas we are still finding iPhone 4 White.

It’s lighter in weight then the previous one (1.3 pounds from 1.5 pounds previous). It’s even thinner then the iPhone, 4 which is 13.4 millimeters where as iPad 2 is 8.8 millimeters. As what Steve Jobs said it’s the 3rd thinner.

The biggest feature is the “A5 Chip” introduced by Apple, It’s a Dual Core Processor, up to 2x faster CPU and up to 9x faster graphics. It’s the first dual core tablet in the market.

As predicted it’s with dual camera, front VGA and features to take self snaps via Photo Booth App (which is by Apple with various filters). We have Facetime now in the iPad 2 which is just ideal by its size for Facetiming as said in the conference.

The rear / back camera is 720 p capability standard which is again a big improvement to this new product.

HDMI cable (US$39) mirrored video output upto 1080p, works with all apps, supports rotation, 10 hours battery time and charges your iPad while using.

A new Smartcover has also been introduced officially by Apple, which features to magnetically attach and folds down to support the iPad 2 to lift it up or stand while being kept somewhere, whereas in normal situation it protects the screen. It’s actually to remove the hectic of pouches, bags etc and still keep it awesome.

Apple has announced for the iPad 2 to reach the outlets on 11th March 2011 within U.S whereas in the time period of 2 weeks later, it will be out in 26 countries. The price is same as the first iPad.

iPad 2 will be with the new iOS that is to be 4.3 which promises to enable better performance to the new hot product in market.

The Major Improved Performance will be in Safari Browser, iTunes Home Sharing and couple of Airplay improvements.

And following is the video of launch event of iPad 2


  • Mostly Ipad 1 users complain about wifi version of its kind thats’ why i will for Ipad 3 unless 3G introduce.

  • I must say that Apple should officially launch its products (iPhones and iPADs) in Pakistan, because Pakistani online shopping networks like homeshopping and shophive are charging too much to Pakistani customers, you can get factory unlocked iPhone 4 from Apple Canada store in $659 which makes 57,000 something Pakistani Rupees, but these Pakistani online stores are giving you same product in 70,000 or more, which is really bad thing.

    • I agree – the iPad2 16GB wifi only is 499$ which would be approx 45,000 Rs whereas homeshopping is selling it for 74,000….

      • Include 19% extra to Government of Pakistan which is on cost plus freight charges. Breakup include 16% GST+ Customs & Clearance .. So it would be around 51000 Rs.

        But,
        Pre-order ? They are doing business with the money of customers? wow …
        and then its 50% more expensive than original price.

        • Yeah… Absence of official Apple stores is beneficial for these local Pakistani companies … they are charging double prices to helpless Pakistani people. :D

          This is what they call “Business”, right? :D

    • r u insane, if you can get iphone 4 in 57000 from canada go and get it, but then calculate the cost, dude the price you are telling is without taxes 2nd the person who will bring will pay freight customs and other expenses, so if you calculate all these togeather, the difference of 13,000 isnt that much, he is investing his money, they are doing business not social work, for that you have to ask Abdul Sattar Eidhi to buy you an apple product on no profit….lolz

  • A week ago I talked with an Apple reseller – he said Ipad 1 is going has not arrived as yet and chances are that it may have later in the year. So officially IPad 1 is not available – to have IPad 2 from an Apple reseller would take much longer to show up.

  • Can anyone comment on wifi in PK? I would like to get an ipad but more experience of internet connections has been terrible. PTCL broadband is the worse service I have ever experienced – continous disconnections and a hopeless customer service facility. the wifi broadband dongle I bought was the biggest waste of money – while it connects well the download speed is practically useless.
    Is there any wifi service in Pakistan that is actually reliable?
