iPad 3 Pricing Rumors – Starts at US$499

This came in via the Mac Observer where they quoted off MacRumors’ post earlier this week, an iPad 3 pricing sheet posted to Sina Weibo.  All across we noted a price increase of about US$80.  The first column above states the model, the second column being the iPad 2 launch prices, the third column being the rumored iPad 3 prices and the fourth column, prices in Chinese RMB.

DOes the better display and faster chip justify the price hike, you tell me.

  1. Don’t forget Foxconn announcing they are going to pay their workers up to 25% more, so the price hike is expected. If people want this stuff assembled in factories with higher wages and safety standards, then we have to pay the price. I think it’s reasonable – if that is indeed the reason for the increase.

    My thing is that I’m tired of having the WiFi only and needing to tether, which I end up never doing. I’m thinking 3’s deal of $50 extra per month for the additional mini-SIM card might make sense for me and I might buy WiFi+3G this time instead of just WiFi.
