So it looks like the iPad 2 will be officially released in the Philippines this Friday. Now, that’s way earlier than what we expected before. Power Mac Center revealed the local launch date thru their FB page.

Ipad2 • Apple Sets Local Release Of Ipad 2 This Friday

Apple PR has not yet responded to our emails for confirmation but an earlier release indicated 13 more countries will get the iPad 2 this April 29, 2011.

The final pricing of the iPad 2 is yet to be announced but we’ll surely know once as Friday nears. If anything else, I expect it to be the same the the suggested retail price of the first iPad.

iPad 2 Prices (estimated)
16GB WiFi – Php23,990
32GB WiFi – Php28,990
64GB WiFi – Php33,990

Realme Philippines

16GB 3G+WiFi – Php30,990
32GB 3G+WiFi – Php35,990
64GB 3G+WiFi – Php40,990

See our full review of the iPad 2 here.

Update: Power Mac Center has pulled out the post on their FB page. Apple PR is very strict about messaging and communications. That FB post has pre-empted Apple in making the announcement. As a premium reseller, Power Mac Center might have violated some Apple policy of sorts.

Update 2: Power Mac rep sent us an email to clarify this announcement. We’ve been asked to remove the statement.

Update 3: Here’s what Power Mac Center posted in their FB Wall instead.

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience that may have been caused by our earlier post on the iPad 2 availability. Rest assured that Power Mac Center did not breach any protocol which may result in a delay in the imminent arrival of this device in our stores or the country. We are waiting with you for the launch of this exciting product. Thank you!

When I originally commented I seem to have clicked the -Notify me
when new comments are added- checkbox and now every time a comment is added I recieve four
emails with the exact same comment. There has to be a means you are able to remove me from that service?
Thank you!

sige na nga wakocoke panalo ka na.
but for me, ipad2 talaga kase sobrang dependent ako sa apps. Pero ikaw i think you’re more on specs/full web browsing kaya i understand naman why you chose android. siguro if mapantayan ng android ang ios pagdating sa apps, dyan instant android convert na ako.

Ang importante may maraming options na Apps. Sayang lang kasi sobrang taas nga ng specs eh pang surf sa net at pang display lang naman… Yung mga Adroid Fans, eh wala nga alam ano ang Android.
