The New iPad 3 Philippines Price, Features and Specifications

| On 05, Jun 2012

The new iPad (or iPad 3) was officially launched in the Philippines by Globe a few days ago together with the announcement of their postpaid plans that will be bundled with the device.  Interestingly, the iPad 3 will be offered in a variety of plans including their low 499 plan. However, it is not that easy because you will be obliged to pay a rather hefty cash out to be eligible for the plan.

Before anything else, let’s start of with Apple’s official TV AD video and the presentation of the new iPad’s specifications and features:

As always, the plan 499 will be limited and will only have 292 hours of web surfing a month while the other one which is the plan 999 will come in with unlimited data for maximum surfing.  Sadly, even though the iPad 3 supports 4G LTE – Globe can only give (or promise) a speed of 7.2Mbps at most.

In case you’re thinking of going for Globe’s postpaid plans, here’s the list of their offers.

    What is geotagging? (that’s techno-ignoramus me) Glad you included the product ad video. The ‘touching part’ on the screen looks like magic, and I like it if I’m charmed. Been contemplating to buy an IPAD but since vendors in the country where I am has English-language issues, I have stayed away from this gadget. Now your post is attracting me to think of this purchase again.

    With a high cash out and a lock in period, I guess it would be much cheaper to buy the ipad3 separately.

    Thanks for posting the specs and the prices. I agree with Franc tho.

    Was surprised to know that it had been released already in the Philippines. I have the first iPad and I wish I could get an iPad 2 or better yet, iPad 3 mainly because of the camera. :)
