Apple’s New iPad Going Globe Hopping This Weekend

This weekend, millions of people all over the world will, for the first time, be introduced to Apple’s new third-generation iPad.

On Monday, Apple issued a press release confirming the next 21 new countries to get the iPad. Beginning this Friday, the new iPad will launch in South Korea, Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, St Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela.

The following weekend, as of April 27, the device will launch in Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand.

Not withstanding the huge demand that Apple’s third-generation iPad continues to enjoy, production has not lagged and, as a result, neither has shipping time for orders placed almost anywhere in the world. In other words, Apple is finally keeping supply on pace with demand.
