iPad 2 Australian pricing leaked?

Whirlpool user posts price list

While local prices for the iPad 2 are not due to be released until Friday 25 March, a forum user on Internet Service Provider (ISP) forum discussion website Whirpool claims to have the inside scoop.

The post includes a number of model numbers starting with the MC769X/A iPad 2 Black 16GB for $AUD579.00 up to MC984X/A iPad 2 White 64GB with Wi-Fi and 3G for $949.00. Accessories, such as the digital AV adapter, are also listed for $45. All prices include GST.

According to the post, the launch will take place at 5pm local time for retail stores and resellers but it was not known when online orders would start.

While the poster would not say where the prices were sourced from, many forum users have posted comments saying the prices seemed accurate but were more skeptical about the 5pm launch time.

"If the 5pm thing is accurate, won't the queues be forming in front of other retailers, making them angry?" wrote one forum user. "It just seems so impractical."

Apple Australia was contacted for comment to verify the price claims but did not reply at time of writing.
