Apple's new iPad 9.7-inch tablet is now available for pre-order on Flipkart

After launching the new 9.7 inch iPad at an event held few weeks ago in Chicago, Apple has finally brought the new low-priced iPad to India, today. The iPads are available for pre-order on Flipkart and while the shipping starts from April 25th.

Today, the new 9.7-inch iPad has gone on pre-order exclusively via the online retailer Flipkart starting at Rs. 28,000. In the U.S., the new iPad launch from Apple was seen as an answer to Google's Chromebook which has been lately one of the popular choices for teachers in classrooms, especially in the US. It's cheaper, more powerful, and offers stylus support - plus it's the only one Apple's selling now, so you don't really have a choice if you want to buy direct from Apple (which we generally recommend to their various customer support programmes).

That's it really, except to say that pricing for the two devices remains the same, unless you're at school - one of us lucky folk what live here in the United Kingdom, where Apple is treating us to a £20 price cut, with new 2018 iPad models starting from £319 compared to last year's £339 RRP.
