Today, an Apple spokesperson has confirmed that the iPad 2 international launch won’t be postponed for later dates. International users can buy iPad 2 models on March 25th i.e on this Friday. The devices will be launched in the following countries and the price rates for different models will differ according to each country.
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 U.K.
Although Apple has confirmed the scheduled launch, they would not reveal the quantity of iPad 2 devices. It has been speculated earlier that these aforementioned countries will also face shortage in supply of iPad 2 for next few months.
