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.
