Apple Releases the iPad Internationally May 28

May 7, 2010, By Radimir Bobev

The initial international launch of the iPad got halted by problems related to supply shortages – but it seems that Apple have taken matters into their own hands and fixed their problems, and are currently getting ready to launch the long-awaited iPad to overseas customers.

According to an announcement by Apple, most overseas customers will get to finally enjoy the iPad starting May 28, though some will still have to wait a bit longer. Those of you living in either Australia, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Spain, Switzerland or the UK will be the lucky ones, as you’ll have your availability on the 28th. You can start placing your pre-orders in a few days, starting May 10.

Austria, Belgium, Hong Kong, Ireland, Luxembourg, Mexico, the Netherlands, New Zealand, and Singapore will have to wait until July to get the expensive toy – and there’re some regions curiously missing from the list, such as South Corea, India and Japan – Israel is missing too, though this could be due to their recent ban on the iPad (which they’ve apparently now lifted).
