KimStore drops Prices for iPad Mini

KimStore, probably the most popular local online gadget store, has dropped prices on the iPad Mini!

Wifi version:
16GB – 18,900 (from 20,000 originally)
32GB – 23,100 (from 24,500 originally)
64GB – 28,200 (from 28,500 originally)

Knowing this has revived my lust for this gadget. They also dropped prices of the iPod Touch 5 to only 13,600 pesos for the 16GB model.

Currently, I am very happy with my iPhone 4. When the iPhone 5 was released, I decided I wanted it. Then the prices were released. It’s not officially in the Philippines yet so we can only buy it from the more entrepreneurial Pinoys who pre-ordered and brought it to our shores ahead of the telcos. The prices are soaring high! There is just no reasonable way I can pay for a unit. Frankly, my iPhone 4 works completely well and if I take care of it well it should continue to do so well beyond my contract with Globe that expires in April next year.

So though I got a little overexcited about the new release, even going to such extents as checking out iPhone 5 cases, I actually might hold out for the next update before trading up. The iPad mini or the smaller version, the iTouch, might be a more affordable alternative for the meantime.

I would love to have that pad mini! It’s so cool to see new gadgets in the market every quarter or every other month. Good thing that I’m not a sucker for new gadgets. I would prefer to invest in clothes or something food-related.

Still steep IMO. It should be under 15k based on the US SRP of $349. Guess early adopters really need to pay extra =)

I was considering buying this for my wife to supplement her iPad2, but eventually decided against it after reading the reviews. Plus, it doesn’t seem significantly smaller than it’s bigger brother.

I think I’ll just get her either an iPhone or an S3, though considering the differences in price/features, the latter appears to be the better deal. All our friends seem to prefer the S3 as well…

I actually have been seriously considering getting a Samsung, but the Note II instead of S3. Am sure she’ll love whichever phone you end up getting for her :)
