If you are thinking of how to buy iPad Mini in Singapore, you have come to the right place as I will be sharing some tips with you on how to purchase the popular Apple tablet in Singapore.
The Apple iPad has been launched in April in USA in 2010,and the first launch outside USA is on 28 May, in countries like United Kingdom, Germany, France, Italy, Australia, Switzerland, Spain, Britain and Canada.
iPad Singapore Release Date
As for Singapore, the official launch is on 23rd July 2010. However, many Singaporeans have already ordered their iPads from USA via amazon, and some other third party forwarders.
If you have friends in USA, you are in luck because you can simply ask them to buy the iPad from any apple store and then get a forwarder to ship the iPad to you. This is the easiest and yet cheapest way to buy your iPad in Singapore.
Since Australia has also just launched the apple iPad, you can use the same method. Better still, you can get a cheap plane ticket to Sydney for a short holiday and then buy the iPad from there, while enjoying your stay there. Click Here To Order Latest Apple iPad Now
If both methods are impossible for you, the next way is to try and order from amazon and then get vpost to ship the ipad to your address in Singapore. You will fill in the shipping address of vpost in USA when ordering from amazon. This has been tested with amazon kindle which is not available in Singapore as of now, with great success.
