It’s only been less than 2 weeks since the release of the Apple iPad in the United States and Apple stores in Saudi Arabia are already selling the iPad. As far as we know Itechia started selling them last Thursday.
4,999SR ($1,333) for 64GB iPad WiFi.
Itechia updated their prices: 2,949SR ($786), 3,449SR ($919), 3,949SR ($1,053) for 16, 32, 64GB iPads.
iSTORE (an empty website) has advertised on today’s Riyadh newspaper. It only had a price list: 16GB for 2,999SR ($799), 32GB for 3,499SR ($933) and 64GB for 3,999SR ($1,066). I have called 2 of the 3 Riyadh branches. One of them told me they sold out of 32 and 64GB models. The other branch was honest and told me they only brought the 16GB model. This photo was taken by Turki.
