Apple to launch new iPad in South Korea & 11 other countries on Friday

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Apple will launch its new third-generation iPad in a total of 12 countries this Friday, April 20, while even more countries, including India, will get the new iPad a week later.

The full list of countries where the new iPad will debut this Friday is Brunei, Croatia, Cyprus, the Dominican Republic, El Salvador, Guatemala, Malaysia, Panama, South Korea, St. Maarten, Uruguay, and Venezuela.

In addition, a week later, on Friday, April 27, the new iPad will also become available in Colombia, Estonia, India, Israel, Latvia, Lithuania, Montenegro, South Africa, and Thailand.

The new iPad will be available starting at a suggested retail price of $499 U.S. for the 16-gigabyte Wi-Fi-only model. Apple will also sell the 16-gigabite Wi-Fi iPad 2 for $399 U.S.

The new iPad also comes available in a model with 4G LTE high-speed wireless Internet. However, customers in the latest launch countries will be restricted to slower 3G speeds, as the new iPad is only compatible with 4G LTE networks in the U.S. and Canada.




The third-generation iPad has seen the fastest international roll-out of any Apple product ever. It originally debuted in mid-March in the U.S. and nine other countries, while an additional 25 countries and territories gained the new iPad just a week later.

I wonder if they're advertising 4G in some of these countries? Will be interesting to see if they learned their lesson yet.

Korea is the most wired nation in the world. It's as though every nook and cranny of the country has access to high-speed Internet. I go to Seoul on business every 2~3 months and it's just amazing how technologically advanced the place is. And despite the ominous presence of Samsung and LG wherever you turn, Apple is extremely popular there. The new iPad will be a big hit in Korea.
