All Systems Go for International iPad 2 Launch This Friday
It now appears that Apple will proceed as originally planned with the iPad 2 international launch scheduled for this Friday, March 25th. Similar to the domestic roll out we experienced two weeks ago, the iPad 2 will reach 25 additional countries at 5:00 pm local time on the 25th.
Not withstanding lingering supply issues at home, Apple confirmed the scheduled global release just this morning, reminding prospective buyers that the second-generation tablet will also be available via the online Apple Store at 1:00 am Friday. "While competitors are still struggling to catch up with our first iPad, we've changed the game again with iPad 2," Apple Chief Executive Steve Jobs stated in a release. "We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the U.S., and customers around the world have told us they can't wait to get their hands on it. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build enough iPads for everyone."
Despite the previously announced delay in Japan's acquisition of the iPad 2 in light of the ongoing and tragic recovery efforts taking place in that nation, the iPad 2, beginning this Friday, will be available in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland and the U.K.

Yeah, I wish they'd deal with the shortages here before releasing them worldwide. My local Best Buy only received 15 for the release and hasn't gotten anymore since! They expect some by Thursday but aren't sure how many they will get. They were supposed to get 75 the first day so its no wonder they are all sold out so fast.

However there thousands of them on eBay now, I was bidding on some on european eBay,but was too expensive, then tried to get from US,and no luck again,as seller tried to cheat, so now I wait to get from German appstore, longer waiting,but at least I will get it.(I hope so)
