Apple Confirms iPad 2 Launching in Another 12 Countries This Week



Apple is certainly rather talkative today; as well as confirming the release of the white iPhone 4 tomorrow, it has also issued a press release announcing that the iPad 2 will launch in another 12 countries this week.

Tomorrow, April 28th, the second-generation tablet will hit Japan; while Hong Kong, India, Israel, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and UAE will get the device on Friday, April 28th. China will also get the device on May 6th.

Customers can purchase the device at Apple retails stores from 9 a.m. local time, select Apple authorized resellers, and from Apple’s online store beginning at 1 a.m.

Meanwhile, I’m still waiting for the iPad 2 I ordered in the U.K. on April 1st. What gives?

    I just don’t get how the can continue to launch the iPad 2 in more countries when they continue to have MASSIVE shortages in the countries the iPad 2 is already on sale in?.. I’ve been waiting just as long as you Killian – and searching through other retailers too since the UK launch day.

    I am not surprised because Apple is trying to make a publicity stunt and con the market. Usual Apple style. There isn’t enough stoke in Singapore either. Imagine! On the first day of launching! Apparently there is a stortage which Apple refuses to acknowledge…Steve Job, what the hack!!!
