Grey Imports of iPad Available in KL now..
The decision by Apple to delay the release of its iPad overseas has given the impetus to enterprising parties to cash in on local fans who cannot wait to get their hands on the device.
A check on popular local forums such as Lowyat.net revealed that iPads are already being sold on the forum by some users. Parallel importers have also gotten into the business of selling iPads in IT malls, including Digital Mall in Section 14 here.
Prices for these grey imports range from RM2,400 to RM2,900 for the 16GB WiFi version. The official price for a similar iPad on the official US Apple online store is US$499 (RM1,600) before tax.
The company has not revealed pricing for overseas markets yet.
