  • Apple Announces New International Availability of iPad 2


    Although Apple is making the biggest headlines Wednesday for addressing the iOS tracking scandal and announcing Thursday's long-awaited availability of the white iPhone 4, Apple has made a third announcement that will certainly be of interest to countless would-be iPad 2 buyers around the world.

    This morning, Apple announced that the second-generation iPad will arrive in Japan on Thursday, April 28 and Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and eight additional countries this Friday, April 29th. iPad 2 will be available at Apple retail stores at 9 a.m. local time, select Apple Authorized Resellers, and online through the Apple Store beginning at 1 a.m.

    With regard to the tablet's availability in China, the world's largest and fastest growing mobile population, the iPad 2 with Wi-Fi will reach China on Friday, May 6. The iPad 2 debuted in the US on March 11 and Apple bulked up distribution to 25 additional countries on March 25. Japan was initially scheduled for a March 25th launch, but the tragic earthquake there last month delayed the launch.

    The full list of new countries getting the iPad 2 by Friday looks like this: Japan, Hong Kong, India, Israel, Korea, Macau, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Africa, Turkey and UAE. Apple says that further international availability will be announced at a later date.

      Wow... That was quick!

      The iPad original arrived after a year in India. Now 2 launches in 4 months...

      Seems like Apple finally realized market potential in India...

      I ordered 4/8/11 and it shipped yesterday. I only ordered online because of the engraving. Been to several local targets, 64gb white wifi only seems rare.

      I guess I got extremely lucky. I walked into Best Buy on April 6th, intent on buying a hard drive. Picked out the drive I wanted, and asked the helper guy if they had any iPad2's in. He said they just might do it. Turns out the truck just dropped off 9 iPad2s. 8 of 'em were pre-orders, while the 9th wasn't spoken for. I snagged it. A white 32gb Wifi only. I'm happy with it.
