    APPLE'S new iPad 2 will go on sale in Australia on Friday, starting at $579 for an entry-level WiFi version.

    Apple this morning released the Australian pricing for iPad 2.

    iPad 2 - WiFi only
    16 GB ... $579
    32 GB ... $689
    64 GB ... $799

    iPad 2 - WiFi + 3G
    16 GB ... $729
    32 GB ... $839
    64 GB ... $949

    Prices for the iPad 2 are cheaper than the original iPad 1 prices in Australia last year. For the Wi-Fi only iPad, iPad 1 prices last year were $629 for 16GB, $759 (32GB) $879 (64GB), and for WiFi and 3G, iPad 1 prices were $799 (16B) $928 (32GB) and $1049 (64GB)

    The iPad2 will go on sale at Australian Apple stores at 5pm in local time zones, and will be available online from 1am.

    This is good news as they are the same as USA INC AUSTRALIAN GST TAX 10% due to the dollar exchange being about the same


    Most retailers will have stock including The Good Guys. Just so you know most retailers close at 5:30 pm unless in a city or decide to stay open on Friday night....It is strange they picked 5pm FRiday

    Interesting, almost the same amount we pay for iPads in America. Wonder if it works out the same on the exchange rate.

    Exchange rate is 1 to 1 which is why. Last year it was 80C on the dollar
