Appleinsider reports that Apple’s iPad is being launched internationally in nine countries on May 28th 2010. Japan is the one country showing great excitement looking forward to the new gadget, iPad. People of Japan were lined outside the Apple stores and Softbank for sporting the iPad and to get the device on the day of its launch, with some lining up from Wednesday in central Tokyo.
The iPad’s international launch was delayed due to strong demand in the U.S. Apple sold million iPads on April 3rd and iPad users have already downloaded more than 12 million applications from the App Store and over 1.5 million e-books from the new iBookstore.
The iPad is available in models that come with wireless internet access or WiFi only, with storage capacity that ranges from 16GB to 64GB. It costs from £429 (€505) for the entry-level model, which comes with WiFi capability, and from £529 for the 16GB version that also includes 3G. When it goes on sales, there is no information how much the device cost in the Republic. The iPad is due for release in the Republic in July along with Austria, Belgium, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Hong Kong, Mexico and New Zealand.
