    According to those that I follow through twitter, yes it is, but not something to be really concerned about.

    Hi Wilgie--

    Well, since I live in the USA-I bought it in my hometown! I guess that we are lucky that way when it comes to immediate availability of the Apple Products when released.

    I have the ipad 2, so didn't feel that purchasing the newest one would be necessary for me. At the earliest--I will look at the one for next year.

    I am also hoping that a smaller version, such as a 7 inch ipad will be released later this year. That would be very handy for me! :)

    Mga rin Malugod na pagbati sa iyong bagong iPad. Aking mga magulang Sinabi sa akin kung paano mamahaling mga bagay na mananatili sa Pilipinas. Saan mo bumili ng iyong bagong iPad-dito sa sa States?

    I got my MiFi for P4,000 (more or less $94). Regarding the usage, I go for the prepaid. As I mentioned before, I only use the MiFi when there's no wifi available. The prepaid values are: P50 ($1.17) unlimited use for 1 day, P100 ($2.35) for 2 days, P200 ($4.70). The $ value conversions I gave is more or less. I don't have any idea with the other value as this are the only prepaid I've used so far. Barely that I use the P200 denomination.
    There are other more expensive Huawei MiFi routers. But for practicality purpose, I chose the P4,000.
    Again, I chose MiFi over iPad with 3G because 5 users can use the router at the same time.
    For other inquiries, you can check Smart or Globe for their SIM broadband services.
    I hope my reply helps.

    Thanks quake-I am familiar with mifi devices here in the states, since I own one myself. I was just curious to know rather it held the same concept in the PI-thank you very much for your detailed response. It did help me clarify my questions!

    Regards!

    In addition, there are still dead spots here in the PI and mostly those area that are from the city or places that doesn't have 3G at all. Better check with the providers if they offer 3G on certain locations.
    Out of topic, I saw a MiFi router at Wallmart last December in the US. Question, does that MiFi needs a SIM to operate? Is it locked to work only in the US? I forgot to ask and check the product.

    The one I bought from Walmart is a virgin mobile mifi that connects to 5 devices. No sim card-it runs with either the verizon or the AT&T carrier depending on which unit you get. Works great for me-also works in the car.

    I knew it! That wouldn't work here. A SIM card from providers here in the PI is needed for the MiFi to work. Same, 5 devices as well. Thanks Carol.

    No problem, my friend! We use to have many of our cousins from the PI come and visit us here, but not as often. My aunts and uncles are getting older in years and their children are so busy. My folks just got back from visiting over there and they just loved it--especially the weather.

    Take Care, Quaker--thanks for commenting here on the PI section. :)

    nasa perth australia ako. d2 unang benenta ang new ipad. una ng 12 hrs yata sa tate. btw hindi masyadong concern ang heat issues. oks nga pwedeng hands warmer pag winter hehehe. ang problema talaga ay ang mababang storage. kc kung icloud ang gamitin mo e babayad ka pa.tsaka syempre gusto mo e maraming apps, music, comics, pdf, books, movie atbp. lalo kung download ka ng hd movies e kainin agad ang 32 gb ko. pag d2 sa oz e hindi masyadong mahal relatively speaking. para ka lang bumili ng high end na cellphone. ang nakita kong advantage eh sa tulad ka na frequent traveler abroad. sa halip na laptop e ipad na lang. kc hassle ang pagbukas ng laptop sa eroplano lalo nakahiga ang nasa front seat mo. at saka pwede mo lagay sa bak pak, ang laptop e daming accessories kaya bag talaga. i'm sorry na konti lang talaga ang mga nasa pinas na maka afford nito. but still it is a wonderful piece of tech and if u can afford it why not.

    Aking-unawa ng Tagalog ay limitado ... ngunit tingin ko naiintindihan ko kung ano ang iyong sinasabi. Sumasang-ayon ako, kapag pagbili ng isang iPad-isaalang-alang ang iyong paggamit sa susunod na 5 taon kapag nagpapasya kung magkano ang imbakan kailangan mo kaysa kumpara sa ngayon. Kapag ako ay nagtapos paaralan-wished ako nagkaroon ako ng isang iPad. Dala ko ang aking Sony laptop na 17 pulgada pababa sa Florida. Ito ay masyadong mabigat at malaki. Personal, mayroon akong ang 32gb unit ng WiFi. Ang aking susunod ay ang 4LTE-sakaling kailangan ko ito.

    Hi Zyrus...are you referring to US or Philippines with your question?

    For me in the States-there's a certain time(day) limit to which your MB expires regardless if you use it or not. So say you purchase a 500 MB for $20 here and it's good for 30 days. You can stretch out it's use through the month...or use it all up in a day with streaming music/video etc. There's no limit to how much you use in a day-within what you purchased as part of your pay as you go plan.
