Apple’s SA iPad 3 pricing announced

Core Group, official distributors of Apple products in South Africa, has revealed what the damage to your credit card will be when the newest iPad model launches in South Africa on 27 April 2012.

Apple revealed the South African launch date of the device on 16 April 2012, along with that of eight other countries.

The Apple iPad makes up over half of the South African tablet market, according to Arthur Goldstuck, MD of research firm World Wide Worx.

This new iPad is the third generation in Apple’s popular tablet PC range and promises a number of improvements over the older model, chief among which is the high resolution “Retina” display.

Previous models of the iPad came in Wi-Fi and Wi-Fi + 3G versions, but the iPad 3 adds support for LTE networks in the US. Models with support for mobile broadband are marketed as Wi-Fi + 4G internationally, and this seems to be the case in South Africa as well.

Core Group announced the following recommended retail prices for the new devices:

  • 16GB Wi-Fi: R4,999
  • 32GB Wi-Fi: R5,999
  • 64GB Wi-Fi: R6,999
  • 16 GB Wi-Fi + 4G: R6,299
  • 32 GB Wi-Fi + 4G: R7,299
  • 64 GB Wi-Fi + 4G: R8,299
