iPad’s International Launch Delayed a Month

Share This:


Apple on Wednesday revealed that demand for the iPad is far higher than the company predicted, with more than a half-million U.S.-only sales in the first week. As a result, it has delayed the international launch of the iPad until the end of May.

Ouch.  I feel sorry for those of you who were just getting excited about getting an iPad in around 10 days, and now have another month tacked onto the wait.

Now a date to remember is May 10 if you’re looking to acquire an iPad outside of the US.  That’s when international pricing will be announced and Apple will begin taking online pre-orders. Apparently US 3G model pre-order deliveries are still on track.

  1. I feel so let down by this, such kill-joy. There i was thinking i'll be able to have iPad in time to go on holiday on the 30th. While i'm pleased with the success, they could have at least give us some love and don't leave us hanging on for so long. Since it's now going to release close to the HP Slate (dare i say) you can bet people might hold out to see what the slate will offer over the iPad.

  2. Sorry to hear this has scuppered the pre-holiday plan. I bet they wish they could be meeting their original schedule as well, as I'm sure they'll lose a few sales as a result of the delays.
