Shenzhen, China (PressExposure) March 07, 2011 -- Apple enthusiasts intending to purchase the new iPad 2 on the day it comes out may be the first gadget fans to be able to buy accessories beforehand says iPad accessories shop iThrough ([http://www.ithrough.com/ipad-laptop-accessories?utm_medium=pr&utm_campaign=SM_PR_PREX_0503211] ).
Electronics giant Apple launched the successor to the iPad, the iPad 2 to a incredibly receptive audience this week.
The technology blog Engadget raved about it saying that it was 'blazingly fast' and 'much nicer to hold than the previous version'. A reviewer for the industry magazine Silicon Valley said that 'This is the iPad I plan to buy -- and I bet I'm not alone'
This reception combined with initial buzz should result in runaway sales for Apple. What's even more interesting is one iPad accessory seller predicts that it could be the first time in the history of gadgets that people get the accessory before the device. Carol Chang, Public Relations Manager for iPad accessories store, iThrough said Chinese electronics suppliers have known the specific physical details for a while.
"It was such common knowledge that accurate mock-ups were emerging on Chinese social media sites up to a week before the launch," said Ms Chang.
According to Carol Chang this will mean that people can get attractive and affordable iPad 2 cases before they actually buy a iPad.
"iThrough has already sourced a selection of these cases available and no doubt others will be getting on the market shortly," said Ms Chang.
However, Ms Chang warned people to purchase electronics and accessories from online shops that they could trust. She said that some fraudsters tried to claim they genuinely sold the iPad from their store in China when it wasn't even sold in China at the time. Ms Chang recommended people should research the store fully before placing an order. With thorough QC checking, speedy order processing, and a warranty on products iThrough realizes how important a good reputation was but warned others were not so careful.
"Head online and search for reviews, send an email to the vendor's customer service department, ensure you're confident with a store before ordering from there."
