How much is the iPad mini in the Philippines?

Tim Cook with the iPad mini.

Hey, the Ipad Mini that has been much talked about has finally been officially announced!

Forced to a smaller form factor because of rivals such as Samsung Galaxy’s 7 inch tab, Google’s Nexus 7 and Amazon’s Kindle Fire HD tablets. The latter are both priced starting at $US199. While the iPad mini is significantly more expensive starting at $328, it is also lighter, thinner and provides more screen space than rival offerings.  Maybe they think they are the industry leader and it would be flea market-esque if they were to price themselves lower than the competition.
.Aside from the obvious difference in size, the 7.9 inch Ipad Mini shares the same A5 dual core chip with an older Ipad model, the Ipad 2.  The latest “New Ipad” has a more advanced A6 dual core chiip with built in quad core graphics.  As such, the ipad mini also shares the same resolution with the Ipad 2.

Pre-orders for the $329, 16GB WiFi-only model begin on Friday (October 26th) and will begin shipping on November 2nd. The cellular-equipped models will begin shipping a few weeks afterward on AT&T, Verizon and Sprint, with the 16GB base model costing $459, running all the way to $659 for the 64GB unit.

Pre-orders start Friday in the United States, Canada and a number of other countries, including  Australia, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Hong Kong, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Korea, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK.  The WiFi version of the iPad mini arrives on store shelves the following Friday, November 2.

As for when it will be available in the Philippines? Who knows?  We are probably at the bottom of the list as the APPLE STORE in Philippines doesn’t even officially sell the New Ipad (Ipad 3) yet!

Pricewise, a direct exchange rate will bring the Ipad Mini 16G at about 13,500 pesos.
