Pricing Leak Indicates iPad 2 WiFi+3G Launching On Chinese Apple Store

Making the devices a hot target for smugglers looking to bring The iPad 2 models with 3G  over from Hong Kong for a profit. The iPad 2 models with 3G have yet to launch in mainland China.

The prices were discovered by performing a search for ’3G iPad 2′ on the site, although the products are unable to be ordered as of yet. But from the pricing, it looks like the Chinese iPad 3G models will be very reasonably priced when compared to Hong Kong and US prices.

It looks like a 16GB iPad 2 will run you RMB 4,688, which is right on par with the US version which runs RMB 4,300 (converted). The Hong Kong price of RMB 3,910 is still cheaper because of the VAT.

The search shows a shipping date of ’2-3 weeks’, so hopefully Chinese consumers will soon be able to snag a reasonably priced iPad 2 3G without having to resort to smuggling.
