Unconfirmed: iPad 2 Malaysia launch April 29, Singapore same day

UPDATE: iPad 2 stocks spotted in Malaysia! Read about it here.

Update 2: It’s official! April 29 iPad 2 Malaysia launch date is confirmed. Full pricing details here.

While it is fairly obvious by now that the rumoured April 22 Singapore iPad 2 launch is not going to happen, new information have surfaced to support unconfirmed rumours that the iPad 2 will be launching in Malaysia and Singapore at the same time on April 29 — Friday next week — citing highly credible internal sources as saying that this is pretty much confirmed.

Once again just like the earlier rumoured April 22 date, at the moment, there is no way to verify this.

Having said that, Machines — one of the more prominent Apple retailers in Malaysia — recently put out an announcement on its Facebook page looking for additional part-time staff to work for two days only, from April 29 to 30. The announcement has since been removed but a screen capture can be found here.

Could this request for extra hands on deck give us the most important clue ever as to when the iPad 2 will be launched in Malaysia?

Attempts to get more information from our very own source that is close to the matter was futile, though the person did concede that April 29 is “very possible”.

In terms of pricing, Malaysia is expected to be one of the cheapest places where you can get an iPad 2 with prices ranging from RM1,700 for the 16GB WiFi variant to RM2,750 for the 64GB 3G+WiFi variant.

i noticed galaxy tab promotion selling at RM1199 at courts.

is it worth the buy ???


    galaxy tab = lagging …
    think twice b4 action is taken … 😉


      In terms of smoothness, the iPad and even iPhones is better. However having said that, the Galaxy tab is a more complete communication device as you can make calls and sms.

      It all depends whether or not you can replace this as your full time communication device. As mentioned in our usability review, the Galaxy Tab with its 7" size can be your mobile phone replacement. If you just need a tablet without requiring to make calls or SMS, the iPad would be a better choice.

most possibly it's coming to our shores this week. Some apple stores are having sales on Ipad1 accessories. Clearly it's making space for Ipad2. I think.

One of my fren said her fren had ben book and inform by apple that there will be a function in this weekend, but detail had not been told by apple. Hopefully it would be the launch of iPad 2.
