It’s almost here. Apple have just announced that the eagerly-awaited iPad will be available for purchase in the US from April 3rd for the Wi-Fi models and late April for 3G models.
Customers overseas in Australia, Europe and the UK will have to wait until the end of April for the first release of Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Starting March 12, customers will be able to pre-order both models from the online Apple store (www.apple.com). With the concurrent launch of the new iBooks store on April 3rd – the release of the iPad is certain to make waves on iTunes and the App Store.
“iPad is something completely new” said Steve Jobs, Apple’s CEO. “We’re excited for customers to get their hands on this magical and revolutionary product and connect with their apps and content in a more intimate, intuitive and fun way than ever before.”
