A check with a few Apple authorised resellers in Kuala Lumpur revealed a surge in interest among consumers, especially for the 16-gigabyte Wi-Fi edition. Sales for this lower-end model has increased by at least 50 per cent after prices were reduced. According to a retailer in Bangsar, the 16GB model at RM1,199 has become pretty affordable for many consumers. The iPad 16GB Wi-Fi has the same computing power as the higher-spec models, but has less storage space and lacks 3G is currently more cheaper than the iPod Touch 64GB, which goes for RM1,399.

It’s a good device for those who want a simple Internet surfing device. While the low-end iPad is enjoying good sales, the same can’t be said of the higher-end models. Consumers who want a higher specification will wait for the iPad 2, which has more features such as dual-camera, a new processor and video conferencing capabilities. The international rollout of the iPad 2 starts this month, but unfortunately, we are not on the list of countries that will receive the first shipment. Some consumers may not want some of the new functions in the iPad 2. Besides, some companies and agencies don’t allow computing devices with cameras to be brought into their premises. This just means current iPads still have a place in the market.

Apple earlier launched the newest iPad 2 with some significant improvements over the first generation model and prices for the new model is expected to be the old price for the first iPad. Among the differences when  the iPad vs  iPad 2 is the thickness and weight. The iPad 2 is thinner, even thinner than an iPhone 4, and weighs slightly less. The iPad 2 also has a faster dual-core A5 processor, a VGA front camera and a HD rear camera with FaceTime and PhotoBooth available. It also runs on the new iOS 4.3 operating system.
