Apple revises iPad ship date

For Americans only - Brits will have to wait

Boost IT visibility and business value

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. ®
