Apple Delays Worldwide Sale Of iPad Until End Of May


apple logoApple has announced that the long awaited worldwide release of the iPad tablet computer will be delayed by one month.  The device will now go on sale internationally at the end of May, while pre-orders will be accepted from 10 May.

The decision to delay the date when the iPad will be released globally is not unconnected with the unexpected success of the device which sold up to 300,000 units on its first of release in the United States.  As a result, the organisation expects demand for the tablet computer to continue to exceed supply over the next few weeks hence its current focus on the US. Consequently, consumers in other Countries such as Canada, UK, Japan, Singapore, South Africa, China and so on have to wait a little longer before they get their hands on the iPad.

    I think the delay in releasing iPad tablet computer globally by Apple have something to do with unexpected success the device recorded. I guess Apple will be out of stock if the iPad is release globally.

      Never really expected the iPad to be so successful but so far it looks like its gonna be. The jury’s still out though.

    I think iPad is going to be as successful as the iPhone, but iPhone is still the best.

    I’m sure the delay has a good reason behind it. Well whatever it is one thing was for sure, it made all of us more excited to grab hold of one.
