Apple iPad price is somewhat higher in India comparing to iPad price in US & UK.
However for iPad lover like me who haven't waited long and ordered for the Apple iPad after it's launch in USA. I ordered for my iPad (64 GB, 3G + Wi-Fi) on 20th August, 2010 last year and then shipped it to India which cost me somewhat higher at price to now available iPad price in INDIA. Along with Apple iPad I ordered for accessories including Apple iPad Case, iPad Keyboard Dock, Apple iPad Camera Connection Kit, iPad 10W USB Power Adapter & iPad Dock Connector to VGA Adapter.
Except Apple iPad case all other accessories are not of much use, especially the "iPad Keyboard Dock" it looks awesome, but believe me it's not of use at all. The in-built keyboard functionality in iPad is sufficient enough, you'll never feel necessity of attaching it to the external iPad Keyboard Dock...Rest all accessories depends on your use, better my suggestion would be first to get your iPad in hand use it for few months and order accessories later as per requirement:-)
I am using BSNL 3G normal SIM which I converted into Micro SIM to be used with iPad. It's very easy to convert your normal SIM card to fit into iPad micro SIM card in-built slot. There's dozen of videos available at Youtube or you can watch this one Video.
Before cutting your SIM as Micro-SIM, don't forget to activate your SIM and use "BSNLNET" as the data provider in your iPad Settings to work with 3G. More details on how to activate your BSNL 3G SIM can be found here. Alternatively you can also order for Noosy Micro SIM cutter with SIM adapters which is available for Rs 500/- only at Ebay.com & Amazon.com
