Indian users unhappy about late iPad 2 launch
Tuesday, 29th March 2011
Indian buyers of Apple's products are upset that the country does not figure in Apple's plans to roll out the iPad in global markets, and some of them said they will not buy the earlier version of the iPad that has been on sale in the country since January.
"After I read about the iPad 2, I decided not to purchase the earlier version iPad being sold in India," said Sujay Rao, a micro-neurosurgeon in Bangalore.
Apple started selling the iPad 2 in the U.S. earlier this month, and said on Wednesday that it plans to start shipping the iPad 2 on Friday in 25 countries including the U.K. and Australia. Apple's announcement suggests it has no supply chain problems for now, although analysts have warned that supplies of components from Japan used in the device could be affected following the earthquake there.
