Awesome and Weird: Apple iPad2 in India starting tomorrow

with one comment

iPad (on the right), iPad 2 (on the left). Do the math.

Apple have scheduled the arrival of iPad2 in India for tomorrow. As it turns out, it’s kind of awesome but having said that, I’m worried for a few reasons. Here’s why…

India craved for iPad 1 for around ten months and then when the excitement almost died, Apple released the product in the country. They released it a few weeks before the iPad2 (in US) was announced. And less than two months into the launch of iPad 1 in India, Apple has bought the second (much much better) version of iPad. What does that mean to the consumers who already bought iPad 1 in the last month or so? Heartbreak! Literally, a heartbreak. What more, this kind of stuff makes Apple look bad in the mind of those consumers who already bought iPad 1. No wonder they’d be cursing after hearing this news. And with the speculated prices making rounds, there is hardly any difference between the two models except of course one would have to pay a bit extra for those niche smart covers – which ensures Apple is cursed a bit more by iPad 1 users.

It is beyond my scope of understanding why it took Apple a year to launch iPad in India and then only a month and a half for the upgraded version. Perhaps Apple heard about the criticism that the delayed launch of iPad 1 took and tried to mend their initial woes. Maybe. On the brighter side, let’s hope the future Apple products, like iPhone 5 and iPad 3 arrive in tandem with US.

Tech companies get weird about such stupid stuff, something no one will ever understand why.
