iPad is finally here in India!

Apple is finally launching its much-awaited tablet iPad in India. The company has tied up with government-run Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited to launch the tablet in the country.

The Wi-Fi version of the iPad will be priced between Rs 26,000 and Rs 33,000,  while the 3G+Wi-Fi version will be priced between Rs 33,000 and Rs 44,000. Both versions will come in three capacities, 16GB, 32GB and 64GB.

India has never been the most important market for Apple so it has always delayed its India launch. It is finally launching in India when there are already rumours of the iPad 2 launch just few months away.

The big question is will iPad really woo Indian techies?  We don't think so. At a time when the market is flooded with tablets from Samsung, Dell and Notion Ink, iPad doesn't give the customers anything different. Little wonder that in India, iPhone hasn't been a best seller yet.  At best, the device might eat into Apple's iPod touch sales compared to other branded PC sales.

With its reputation preceding it, it has already evoked price-cuts from rivals - the Samsung Galaxy Tab, for instance, is now available at Rs 29,500, down from the launch price of Rs 36,499.

However, the android bug is rather big in India. So will have to wait and see if the iPad can outdo the Android .
