Apple aimed for a global launch when it first put the new Apple iPad on sale in March. Of course, it couldn’t possibly launch it everywhere at once, which is why the third-generation iPad is set for release in 21 additional markets in the coming weeks.
On April 20, the new iPad will go on sale in South Korea, Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, St Maarten, Uruguay and Venezuela. A week later, on Friday, April 27, it will launch in Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa and Thailand.
The third-generation iPad will still be available with a suggested retail price starting at $499 US for the 16GB Wi-Fi unit and $629 for its 4G equivalent, and ranging up depending on the capacity. In a press release announcing the news, Apple is very clear in stating the international limits of 4G, stating, “4G LTE is supported only on AT&T and Verizon networks in the U.S. and on Bell, Rogers and Telus networks in Canada.”
