Apple releases iPad with Retina Display and iPad Mini in China from Friday
Apple has announced that it will be launching the latest Apple iPad with Retina display (4th generation) and the iPad Mini in the Middle Kingdom as the company brings yet another of its big name products out in China this week.
As of Friday January 18th, Apple will be offering its two newest tablets in the notoriously competitive Chinese market with its latest iPad and its 7.9-inch Mini counterpart after the iOS 6 tablets has already showed their faces in over 100 countries worldwide.
The iPad Mini is the smallest and newest iPad which was launched back in October in the UK, and it will hit Chinese shores, bringing with it a 7.9-inch Multi-Touch display, FaceTime HD and 5 megapixel iSight cameras, ultrafast wireless performance and an incredible 10 hours of battery life.
The full sized iPad will be released with Apple’s 9.7-inch Retina display running off a super nippy A6X chip with a FaceTime HD camera and ultrafast wireless performance. Both devices run off of Apple’s latest iOS 6 user interface.
The Chinese market is one that Apple is keen to crack as it is the last bunker of major sales for the tech giant, but with brands like Samsung , Sony and ZTE all being top of the charts in China, Apple is struggling to find a similar share of the sales that it enjoys in the western world.
The Apple iPad Mini with Wi-Fi + Cellular come in black & slate or white & silver for a suggested retail price of $459 (US) for the 16GB model, $559 (US) for the 32GB model and $659 (US) for the 64GB model. The fourth generation iPad with Wi-Fi + Cellular models come in black or white for a suggested retail price of $629 (US) for the 16GB model, $729 (US) for the 32GB model and $829 (US) for the 64GB model.
