    Default Brazil-Built iPads May Soon Reach Consumers


    If you've ever been to Brazil, you know what a remarkably beautiful and fun place the nation truly is. Now, if you're an Apple fan on top of it, Brazil is about to get a whole lot cooler from your perspective.

    Published reports Thursday suggest that Apple will soon release iPads (of the second-generation variety) manufactured in Brazil. According to well placed sources quoted in the blogosphere today, the locally produced 16GB iPad 2 has already received the proper certification and is awaiting market introduction in Brazil.

    Although Apple already sells the iPad 2 in Brazil, the 16GB model will be the only class of iPad 2 that remains in production once the third-generation iPad becomes available there. Beyond introduction to the Brazilian market, it remains unclear how soon it will be before Brazil-produced products are shipped elsewhere in the world.

    Of course, you'll probably know a Brazilian-manufactured iPad when you see one. Brazilian-assembled iPads will supposedly carry a BR/A suffix in their on their model numbers.

    I found it to be pretty but so dangerous. I went to the Grand Prix a few years back with work and we had to have a security team to watch over us.

    Dude, as any city, So Paulo has it's dangerous places and Interlagos, the region of the Grand Prix, is one of them. I was born here, trust me.

    Boa noite tudo mundo! Eu amo Brasil! Eu quero voltar! Ipads em Brasil? Shoppa-na-brasa! Basically, Brasil was dangerous, but you just need to know where not to go by yourself, what times not to go, learn Portuguese, and always hang around a lot of locals and speak in their native tongue when walking around. You should be fine. I can't wait to live there again!

    Also, won't they say "Designed by Apple in California, Assembled in Brazil"

    Same when I go to NY and LA. Long recession and a very slow economic "recovery" made security problems worse.
