Here are the details of the alleged ‘offer’:
Above mentioned prices also include the original Apple iPad case, a screen protector and free shipping anywhere in India. The offer remains even with these goodies. No 3G model is available.
The idiots have even gone to the limit of mentioning hypothetical MRPs as follows:
The MRP of the $40 US priced original case has been insanely mentioned as INR 5500. Surprisingly, the price of the screen protector has been mentioned reasonably at INR 350.
In addition to being seriously absurd, this is also infinitely WTF. Apple hasn’t yet launched the iPad officially in India. They still run the ‘Notify Me’ page for iPad on their site. I am not sure from where these guys got the MRP of iPad in India. Looking at the figures, it looks like they have taken the prices from ebay.
Also, since the iPad has not been officially launched in India, this one will probably ship with a non India style power adapter. However, it is not mentioned anywhere.
As always, we would recommend you not to get fooled by these so called offers and either wait for the official launch in India (god knows when) or have a friend or relative get it for you from abroad where its available at a much cheaper price.
