iPad 2 Australian pricing leaked?

Australian iPad 2 pricing leaked: Set for launch at 5pm, Friday 25 March?

A post on Australian technology forum Whirlpool has possibly revealed iPad 2 pricing details.

Read our comprehensive iPad review and our iPad 2 preview.

Initially reported by Nick Broughall over at Gizmodo, the user Brown2Hornet included specific model numbers of all iPad 2 devices and accessories, including the range of smart covers and the digital AV adapter that allows the iPad to hook up to a television using a HDMI connection. Although the post can't be confirmed, it looks pretty legitimate to us.

"Here's the pricing. Don't ask where I got this because I'm unable to reveal. Launch will be this Friday from 5PM (same time as US launch)," he said in the post. "Prices include GST. Launch is 5pm local time (regardless of timezone) for retail stores and resellers. Not sure when online store will start taking orders. Red covers will be sold online only."

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
