The iPad UK launch has been postponed again, Apple announced today. Lucky US citizens may already be able to get their hands on the iPad Wi-Fi model, but if you didn’t import one, here in Blighty, we’re looking at a much longer wait. Read on for the details.
Apple has just issued a statement to press announcing that the iPad UK and international launch will be delayed due to “surprisingly strong US demand”. The iPad UK launch will now not take place until the end of May. The iPad went on sale on 3 April in the US, and was originally intended for release in the UK in March. This was pushed back to late April last month, and now Apple says that the US “runaway success” (More than 500,000 iPads were sold in the first week) is the cause of this second delay.
An iPad UK price is still MIA, but Apple has also announced that the iPad UK and international pre-orders will begging on Monday 10 May. We’ll update with any more news as it breaks.
Out late May | £TBC | Apple
