Before Apple’s iPhone 4 nightmare, there was the controversy-free iPad, which is at last rolling out to nine more countries this Friday, July 23. That should come as good news both to would-be customers in those countries, as well as the rest of us weary of hearing about the iPhone 4’s so-called “issues.”
AppleInsider is reporting early Monday that the iPad will start to fly off the shelves in nine more countries this Friday, July 23, according to an announcement from Apple. If you live in Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand or Singapore, prepare to get excited!
While no territory-specific prices were announced, Apple did state that customers will have the choice of the Wi-Fi only or 3G-capable iPad models, either at Apple’s own retail stores or through Apple Authorized resellers in those countries.
But the iPad gravy train doesn’t stop there: Apple states that the device “will roll out to many more countries later this year and Apple will announce availability and local pricing for these additional countries at a later date.”
Following the iPad’s U.S.-only debut on April 3 with the Wi-Fi only model, supplies have been constrained due to production problems as well as demand, with the first international rollout getting delayed until May 28. For the latest nine countries getting their iPad this Friday, the news is all good, as AppleInsider notes Apple has kept to their previously announced July launch timeframe for the second international release.
