Although the iPad has been legally launched in the US only (on April 3), it has not stopped stores in Hong Kong from illegally bringing in and selling the iPads at exorbitant prices. The Hong Kong stores had it all planned out: they had groups of students ready to buy, workers waiting to pack, and people set to fly back to Hong Kong. Add that all up and they were selling iPads only a few days after Apple. Now that’s efficiency!
The stores are selling the iPads for $971 for 16GB, $980 for 32B, and $1080 for 64GB. That is almost double price charged by Apple! On a side note, the 32GB version is only $9 more than the 16GB in Hong Kong, it’s a $100 difference here. Oh Apple, even people in Hong Kong know an extra 16GB isn’t worth $100.
