Apple reveals international pricing for iPad 2; March 25 release

Today, Apple announced that the iPad 2 is still on track for their international release on March 25 in 25 countries. The second generation iPad will go on sale at 5PM local time, and maintain the same suggested retail price of the United States release.

Many analysts predicted that the iPad 2 international launch date might slip after the devastation in Sendai, Japan. As some may know, Japan is a parts supplier for many Apple products, including the glass for the iPad 2.

The WiFi-only iPad 2 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 UK on March 25 and in Hong Kong, Korea, Singapore and additional countries in April. The iPad 2 with WiFi + 3G will also be made available for the same suggested retail price as the American counterpart.

Pricing for the iPad 2 in the United States was listed at $499, $599, $699 for the 16GB, 32GB and 64GB of the WiFi-only model. The 3G model would tack on another $130 in any model and colour.

I think I can safely confirmed that none of the apple stores of those countries have published the prices yet and have a 'notify me' thing instead

I don't know how they going to do that, especially when here in the US after 11 days it's still hard to get one, there's no stock in the stores, you have to be hunting from store to store, Walmart, SAMS, Best buy, Target, Apple Stores and you have to wake up early and to be lucky!

Even if you try one online still 2-3 weeks!

Maybe aApple will be the same, just release the 25th and then, they will not restock for 2-3 weeks.

Am I the only one who can't see the UK price?

That's because they're still adding £££ to it, you know it's gonna be expensive

Prices will start at £399 for the Wi-Fi only model - that's £30 cheaper than last year with the Wi-Fi only models topping out at £559. If you want 3G you will have to bolt on an extra £100 on to the price, so the 16GB will cost £499, 32GB will cost £579 and the 64GB behemoth will cost £659

Overpriced device still

Yup...won't be getting one.

They add one 200-300 extra for the Australian market....greedy ****s

Article is wrong.. Nothing on the Australian site aswe'll as how many other countrys have already been mentioned. The prices have been released to the media and stores but not on the apple store.
