Apple's price cut on iPad 2 16GB version in US will be effective in India as well.

At the launch of its new iPad, Apple had announced that its popular iPad 2 will now be retailing at $399 (Rs 20,000) in the US.

According to phonearena folks, this price cut will also trickle down to India. Those vying to get a piece of Apple will now have to shell Rs 24,500 (or less) to get a 16GB WiFi version. Currently the online stores are  retailing the iPad 2 16 GB Wifi version for Rs 28,499.

However you will have to hold your horses for a week or so, till the effective pricing is communicated to stores and online retailers.

Here is a quick recap on the Apple iPad 2. Equipped with iOS 4.3, ipad 2 comes in the dimensions of 241.2x185.7x8.8mm. Weighing 601g, the device sports a 9.7-inch wide LED backlit, multi-touch display with IPS technology, fingerprint resistant oleophobic coating and two cameras for Face Time and HD video recording.

On the connectivity front, the device supports Bluetooth 2.1+EDR technology. A built-in 25 watt hour rechargeable lithium-polymer battery, gives the users up to 10 hours of uninterrupted entertainment.

The pricing for the Apple's new iPad for India has not been revealed so far. The new iPad will hit the shelves across US and other some other countries on March 16.

We hope to see the device come to Indian shores soon after. It is quite likely that Apple will once again partner with Aircel and Airtel.

We will bring you all the pricing details shortly.
