iPad 3 to Have $70-80 Price Increase Over the iPad 2? [Rumour]

by on February 27th, 2012

The latest rumours in regards to the iPad 3 come in the form of price increases, based on some forum postings from Chinese micro blogging site Sina Weibo. One price chart notes the U.S. pricing of the iPad 2, iPad 3, and a final price based on the Chinese exchange rate. If this price info is indeed true, it would mean an $80US increase for the iPad 3 for WiFi versions, and $70 across the board for 3G+WiFi models:

Price increases in the U.S. would subsequently mean Canadians would also pay more for Apple’s tablet. Pricing differences between Canada and the U.S. for iPad 2 are roughly $20. Possible rationale for a price hike would be the expected Retina Display and also the inclusion of LTE capabilities. Apple is widely expected to announce its iPad 3 at a media event set to take place in the first week of March.
