On Monday morning, Apple issued a press release confirming the next round of international roll-outs for the new, third-generation iPad.
In keeping with Apple chief Tim Cook's promise to make the new iPad an international phenomenon in record time, the new tablet will reach 21 new countries this month, with a dozen of those releases slated for this forthcoming weekend.
Beginning with a mega-push Friday in South Korea, the new iPad also will be available for the first time in Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, St Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela.
After that robust market introduction later this week, Apple will fire up the promotional machines all over again on April 27th as the new iPad makes once more journey across the globe. In the final days of April, the new iPad will launch in Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand.
Thankfully, production of the new tablet has been stellar in recent weeks. So despite crushing demand, tablet shipments haven't been dramatically hampered or delayed. And no one expects the latest round of releases to negatively impact this reality either.
