Apple revises iPad ship date
For Americans only - Brits will have to wait
Apple has missed its deadline. The iPad will go on sale in the US not in "late March" but early April, the company has admitted.
To be fair, the release day is Saturday, 3 April, so only three days past its deadline. The good news is that the company will begin taking orders on Friday, 12 March.
On that day, you'll be able to order any of the Wi-Fi-only and Wi-Fi -plus-3G models - each will be available with 16, 32 or 64GB of Flash storage - though the 3G versions won't become available until "late April", Apple reiterated.
Apple also said the all versions of the iPad will go on sale in Europe in that late April timeframe, confirming recent rumours that the initial roll-out will be a US-only affair.
Apple still isn't saying what we'll have to pay for an iPad over here. ®
It would be appropriate
If they released it 2 days earlier.
That's my birthday
And I intend to do something more worthwhile with my time than order a comedy sized iPod Touch. In fact, the first person I know who buys one of these will find themselved bombarded with emails containing links to Flash based sites and Java games. The sad thing is that this product won't bomb (like it deserves to) because Apple fanbois really will buy anything regradless of real functional ability.
Word on UK pricing will actually be announced when the iPad begins to take preorders in the US. At least according to the press release engadget posted :)
Honey I blew up the iTouch
the giganto lazer apparently stopped working. Thats the problem with mad science its so unreliable.
A ship date slips by three days - three fucking days - and this is news?
