New Delhi: Apple fans have a reason to rejoice as after months of waiting, Apple is all set to launch the new iPad in India on April 27.

What is interesting to know, is that new version includes features like the new Retina display, Apple’s new A5X chip with quad-core graphics and a 5 megapixel iSight camera with advanced optics for capturing amazing photos and 1080p HD video.

The third iteration of the best-selling device is priced between 30,500 rupees and 50,900 rupees in the Indian market depending on the variant.

The iPad with 16 GB of memory that works only on wi-fi networks is priced at 30,500 rupees, while the one that can operate on both wi-fi as well as fourth-generation (4G) mobile networks costs 38,900 rupees.

The new iPad is, however, not compatible with the 4G LTE network currently available in India and customers will have to make do with the 3G networks.

Customers have the option to buy the new iPad in black or white with 16, 32, or 64 GB of memory, and can choose a model that works only on wi-fi or on both wi-fi and 4G.

The company will continue to sell the iPad 2 in India but has slashed its prices, with the 16 GB wi-fi model now available for 24,500 while the 3G version will cost 32,900 rupees, Apple said.
