There is little left for Brazilian Apple fans to have one of their biggest objects of desire: the iPad 2.
The Peace Blog was one of the first sites to report the launch date of the iPad 2.
Now it’s fully confirmed: some stores, such as Walmart, are already counting down to the marketing of Apple’s tablet.
Originally marked for June, the official debut of the iPad 2 was anticipated due to the beginning of the commercialization of competing tablets, the main one being the Samsung Galaxy 10.1 (arriving June 8).
These first handsets are being imported, while the “made in Brazil” iPads, assembled in São Paulo, are expected to arrive in stores in December, with an estimated price of R $ 1,000.00.
The expectation of the shopkeepers is that this first batch will end this weekend.
Even so, there is a forecast of a new stock replenishment, once this first one is finished.That would be part of Apple’s strategy of keeping inventories down on the shelves, thereby increasing consumer sentiment about the lack of the product and the desire to buy.
A well-known “tactics” of commerce, practiced mainly by the stores of feminine articles.
It is very difficult to predict sales of the iPad 2 in these early days, as this time, unlike the iPad 1, consumers already know that they will be able to buy the tablet from Apple for a much larger amount at the end of the year.
For a further $ 149.00 you get a Smart Cover.
In addition to making your iPad more beautiful and personalized is also a useful accessory for screen protection (in case of a fall for example).
