Apple brings back iPad 4 to India at Rs 28,900

Apple Inc, which pulled out its iPad4 tablet from the Indian market last year to make way for the trendier iPad Air, is bringing back that tablet again — this time as an “entry-level” device to replace the outmoded iPad2 that has lost appeal. The 9.7-inch iPad 4 that comes with a retina display will be available in India within a week.

Apple Inc, which pulled out its iPad4 tablet from the Indian market last year to make way for the trendier iPad Air, is bringing back that tablet again — this time as an “entry-level” device to replace the outmoded iPad2 that has lost appeal. The 9.7-inch iPad 4 that comes with a retina display will be available in India within a week.

“iPad 2 was launched around four years back and in today’s time of fast-changing tech world it appeared a bit outdated even as an entry-level tablet from Apple’s stable…iPad 4 looks more in sync with time,” a Apple executive said requesting anonymity.

The 16GB WiFi only version of the iPad 4 is expected to cost Rs 28,900, while a Wifi and cellular version will come with a price tag of Rs 37,900.

“Customers can get iPad with a stunning 9.7-inch Retina display, fast A6X chip, and 5MP iSight camera, an upgrade in performance and value compared to the iPad 2,” said Philip Schiller, Apple’s senior vice-president of worldwide marketing.

Tablets based on Apple’s iOS platform held 36% market share in 2013, behind those based on Google’s Android software (62% share), according to research firm Gartner.
