Word's out that the Apple iPad is at long last reaching South African shores. Core Group, official distributor of Apple products in SA, has announced the availability of the device in a number of retail outlets starting tomorrow (28 January 2011).
The news about the SA release comes exactly a year after the iPad was first announced by Apple CEO Steve Jobs, currently on medical leave.
The iPad, with Wi-Fi only, will retail for R4399 for the 16 GB version, R5399 for 32 GB and R6399 for the 64 GB model. 
As can be expected the iPad with both Wi-Fi and 3G will retail for a bit more, coming in at R5599, R6599 and R7599 for the 16 GB, 32 GB and 64 GB version respectively. 
There is no information currently available on the iPad’s availability from any of the cellular networks, but according to Core Group the iPad will be available at the following retail outlets:
