This was revealed by a page over at Apple's online store so we're betting this is as official as it can get. Our earlier predictions (we expected it to arrive in late April or early May) were a bit off on this one and the May 29 local launch and is a full month later than the iPad 2's Philippine landfall last year. Still, we're not complaining. As they say, better late than never. And it's not that it's that delayed to begin with, right?
No word yet on pricing although it's a safe bet the new iPad will follow its predecessor's initial pricing (starting from P23,990). We're already seeing a few online local resellers offering the tablet at different prices so you could actually get one sooner although we recommend giving it some thought first seeing that it's through unofficial channels. Expect the new iPad to show up on official local Apple product retailers, Globe, and, of course, the Philippine Apple Online Store once May 29 drops. In the meantime, you could check out our first impressions of the device below.
