Apple’s 3rd-Gen iPad will be available in Philippines on May 29

Notebook and Tablet

My cousin wanted to buy an iPad 3 when it become available in the Philippines. We went to SM Cyberzone to look for it but we cannot find any iPad 3. When we asked the sales person in Mac Power Center, he told us that many people are asking the same question but he doesn’t have any idea when it become available. Fortunately, I found cheap iPad 3 64GB Wi-Fi only on a popular buy and sell website.

We purchased the iPad 3 for only P33,500 with 1 year Apple warranty. My cousin downloaded lots of apps and games and I’m currently exploring the new features that I saw from the The New iPad video.

If you also want to own an iPad 3 badly, the good new is, it’s confirmed that iPad 3 will be launch in the Philippines on May 29, 2012. For more information about the new iPad (iPad 3) features, specification and pricing, click here.
