Today Apple's iPad officially goes on sale internationally in Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Japan was the first to receive the iPad, opening earlier this morning in a frenzy for the new gadget, as posted by the Wall Street Journal.
The device was announced back in January, and later hit store shelves in April, selling over 300k in the first day. Despite the device only being available with WiFi, it managed to sell 1 million units in 28 days, and shortly after release date of the WiFi + 3G model was made available on April 30th.
Although the device had some issues shortly after launch, where consumers were having difficulties using the WiFi on some routers and USB charging issues, the iPad appeal has been strong with consumers, outselling Macs 2:1.
