One month after its U.S. debut (March 16), Apple has announced it will begin selling the new iPad in 12 additional countries this week.
Even with strong demand for the third-generation of the iPad, Apple has stayed the course to get the device into international consumers as soon as possible.
Weeks after the March 23 debut of the device, it became available in Europe, New Zealand, Mexico, and Macau. This Friday, April 20, those in South Korean and 11 other countries: Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, St Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela, will be able to get their hands on the new iPad.
The device will be sold through the Apple online store and select Apple authorized resellers. There will probably be no pre-orders given the March 23 release did not have them, but anything is possible.
Friday, April 27, is the next big release of the new iPad; bringing the device to Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand.
