Nine nations to get Apple iPad on Friday

Still no sign of a key accessory, though

Apple's iPad will arrive in nine more countries this coming Friday.

Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, Netherlands, New Zealand and Singapore will all be blessed with the "magical" gadget at the end of the week, in both its 'Wi-Fi only' and 'Wi-Fi plus 3G' forms.

That's good news for folk over there, but we're still wondering why it's taking so darn long for Apple to ship its promised iPad Camera Connection Kit.

In the UK and the US the £25/$29 accessory, which allows you to hook up cameras and some other USB devices, or copy content off SD memory cards and onto the tablet, is still not set to ship for another four to six weeks, despite having been promised long since.

Does Apple not believe iPad owners will want to view holiday snaps on their tablets this summer? ®
