Never Opt For An Apple's Launch Product!

By: Subhadeep Bhattacharjee

If you are one of those people in India who has missed Apple’s latest gizmo you have something on the offering. Just about a year after Apple iPad created buzz in the technology industry, Steve Job and his team are ready with the second avatar of the product. Apple has made the iPad2 faster, thinner, lighter, more powerful, and more versatile than the original iPad. What’s more it is priced at the same $499 as the model launched last year.

So just about a year’s wait has made the buyers get a faster, thinner and lighter product at the same price. So what’s the point in buying a product first up when you get a better one just about a year later? Off course it doesn’t apply to the techno geeks who love ripping apart a new product (virtually though) and writing about or those cool dudes who boast about having stood in queues to get hold of their Apple product. For a smart buyer a year’s wait seems to bring in a lot of bonuses.

This is not the first time this has happened with an Apple product. Since the launch of its revolutionary portable music player the iPod in 2001 we have seen six generations of the product rolling out. It has been even faster with the iPhone which has seen four avatars in since its launch four years ago. With every newer version Apple has something new to offer at the same price or even at substantially lower price.

P.S. If you are buyer and don’t have any eagerness to flaunt an iPad as yet, waiting for the third generations shouldn’t be stupid. One thing for sure you won’t have to wait for too long!
