Apple: iPad 2 international launch still on track for March 25

“Whispers that Apple might delay the international launch of the iPad 2 given the general lack of availability here in the U.S. since its launch just 10 days ago have proven to be false. Proof positive of that is new word from the company this morning that buyers abroad will still be able to get their hands on the tablet come Friday, as originally planned,” Josh Lowensohn reports for CNET.

“Speaking to TechRadar earlier today about the iPad 2 launch in the UK, an Apple representative told the site that ‘everything on the Web site still holds true; the Web site says 25 March and that’s when it’ll be,'” Lowensohn reports. “In a follow-up conversation, an Apple representative told CNET that the original launch plans for the other 24 countries that make up the second launch wave have not changed either.”

  1. Maybe the lack of supply in the US is help boost international supply. After the March 25th launch, we will see supply turn-around.

    Don’t be upset to see lines or waiting lists for the next 6 months. If you want worry free waiting, order online at your favorite website.

  2. Apple UK’s website still shows iPad 2 being available from 25th March. Though there is no info on UK pricing etc or info on when you can order or pre-order. Circa 2 days to go & still no info from Apple. Same lack of info on the major mobile providers.

  3. Isn’t that just great. They’ll have iPad 2 for sale in Canada and I will be in Miami that morning where the iPad 2 is sold out.

    By the time I get back to Canada, all the retailers there will be sold out too.

    Maybe I should go to Hong Kong, they seem to have a lot of iPad 2s at the Airport there.
