If you live in the United States, you have had the pleasure of being in position to purchase an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad mini for roughly eight months. However, not everybody has been so fortunate. Instead, this tablet has yet to make its way to many regions throughout the world.
Fortunately for the people of Brazil, this is changing forever. As noted by Macworld Brasil, the mini tablet is set to go on sale in the country tomorrow. Not only is this big news for the people who live in Brazil and want to purchase an Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad mini, but the same holds true for Cupertino itself. After all, the company is looking to push its devices into as many markets as possible as long as the return is seen as a positive one.
Here is a brief excerpt from Macworld Brasil, explaining the finer details of the upcoming release:
“The iPad Mini, which is released for sale by the FCC since November 2012, will finally be released in Brazil next week, specifically next Tuesday, 25/6.
The information was revealed in the early hours of Thursday to Friday, 6/21, for sites of retailers like FNAC and Saraiva, who has called the estampam release tablet of 7.9 inches of Apple in its pages. The Fast Shop announced it also starts selling the phone on Tuesday.”
At this point, pricing for the Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) iPad mini in Brazil has yet to be released. That being said, we can likely expect the pricing structure to be similar to other markets.
Just because Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) is spending so much time and money in China does not mean it is overlooking the importance of growing its market share in other countries. For example, Brazil has a developing economy that is ripe for the taking. This is why Apple, along with many other companies, are trying to get their food in the door.
With Apple manufacturing some of its smartphones in Brazil, due to its agreement with Foxconn, it only makes sense for the tech giant to spend more resources in the country in the months to come. And this is exactly what it is doing with its iPad mini.
It will be interesting to see how this Apple Inc. (NASDAQ:AAPL) tablet is received by the people of Brazil when it is finally released tomorrow.
