iPad 2 on sale in Hong Kong, Singapore in April

Apple said Tuesday that the iPad 2, the latest model of the hot-selling
tablet computer, will go on sale in Hong Kong, Singapore and South
Korea in April.
The iPad 2 hit stores in the United States on March 11 and will be available in 25 other countries on Friday.
The iPad 2 had been scheduled to go on sale in Japan on Friday but
Apple announced last week that it was delaying the sale of the iPad 2
there because of the devastating earthquake and tsunami.
Apple chief executive Steve Jobs said there had been strong demand for the iPad 2 in the United States.
“While competitors are still struggling to catch up with our first
iPad, we’ve changed the game again with iPad 2,” Jobs said in an Apple
statement.
“We’re experiencing amazing demand for iPad 2 in the US, and
customers around the world have told us they can’t wait to get their
hands on it,” he said.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience and we are working hard to build
enough iPads for everyone,” said Jobs, who went on medical leave in
January for an unspecified illness.
The iPad 2 goes on sale on Friday in Australia, Austria, Belgium,
Britain, Canada, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany,
Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Mexico,
Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Sweden and
Switzerland.
Apple said it will be available in Hong Kong, Singapore, South Korea
and unspecified additional countries in April but did not release an
exact date.
Apple sold more than 15 million iPads last year and rival
electronics manufacturers have been scrambling to produce their own
touchscreen devices.
Customers try the latest ipad 2 at the Apple store on Fifth Avenue in
New York, March 11. Apple said Tuesday that the iPad 2, the latest
model of the hot-selling tablet computer, will go on sale in Hong Kong,
Singapore and South Korea in April.
Blackberry maker Research In Motion announced Tuesday that its iPad
rival, the PlayBook, would go on sale in the United States and Canada
next month at a price identical to that of the iPad.
